2. Symptoms of Armpit Lumps

The symptoms of armpit lumps caused by an infection are troublesome but generally minor and related to the infection. They may include fever and swelling. Other symptoms include pain, and sometimes the area can feel hot. These symptoms can likely be treated at home.

A person should see a doctor about an armpit lump even if they have no signs of infection, or one develops that isn't tender or painful. Any lump that drains fluid or pus should get looked at.1‘Swollen Lymph Nodes.’ Mayo Clinic. www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/swollen-lymph-nodes/symptoms-causes/syc-20353902.
