what could be the cause for a small bump under my armpit?

Hi there goodnight! About 2 months ago I got a small lump under my armpit. At first, it was painful. It would burn at times. But after a week or so, the pain stopped and the lump grew but not big, you could feel and tell the difference though. To this day I still have it. It doesnt hurt. Doesn t move around or anything like that. Do you know what it could be?

It could be either an enlarged lymph node or a healed furuncle. I would recommend you to consult a doctor and get it evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
