An armpit lump refers to the enlargement of an underarm lymph node. Lymph nodes are small, oval-shaped glands that are located throughout the body and play an important role in the immune system. Armpit lumps may also be caused by cysts, infection, or irritation due to shaving or using antiperspirants. Lumps may feel small or be extremely visible in other cases. Seek medical attention if you have an armpit lump that gradually becomes enlarged, is not painful, or does not go away.
