I have a pea size lump below my right armpit so its pretty much right on my top ribs.


Posted by Jeremy again

Hi, Im a 19 year old male and I have a pea size lump below my right armpit so its pretty much right on my top ribs. I can push it round with my finger so its not fixed in one spot. It is not really sore but sometimes when I touch it with my arm, I can feel it really slightly hurt but not enough for it to bother me. My mums friend thinks it may be a little ball of a jellylike something or a sist. she said she had something the same on her foot. she said it can be taken care of by whacking it with a book or just simply squeezing it.. but she also said that I should get it checked out at the doctor before I try anything like that. Apparently I don't have to be worried.. but since its a lump I can't help but worry. What do you think?
