What does a sore lump under the armpit mean?

Answer

Any lump under the armpit should be seen by a doctor to make sure it is not caused by a serious condition that would need immediate treatment. Some causes of a sore lump under the armpit include shingles, the chicken pox, vaccinations, and even normal breast tissue that makes its way into the armpit. A swollen lymph node and benign cyst may also be a cause. However, sometimes an armpit lump is a sign of cancer, including breast cancer and lymphoma.
