What Causes A Painful Lump In The Armpit Near The Breast?

I had a scare with a mammogram and u/s a month or so ago, which finally came back to be benign. I now have a very painful lump under my arm on the same breast I had the scare. I have never had this before. I plan to se my Gyn on Monday if I can get in. Please advise.

Hello,

Painful lump in the armpit could most likely be an abscess. Follow up with your primary provider to confirm the diagnosis and further management.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
