Pink Lump in Armpit

Published: May 14, 2012
Dear TeenHealthFX,
I am 14 years old, and one morning I woke up with my left armpit sore and I felt a little lump. The area of the lump was a little pink. What can this be? Thanks.

Dear Pink Lump in Armpit,


A lump in your armpit could have many different causes and should be evaluated by a doctor who can also recommend any treatment that may be necessary.  Unfortunately, TeenHealthFX cannot diagnose you over the Internet.  If you do not have a doctor and you live in the Northern New Jersey area, you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health at 973.971.6475 for an appointment.  In other areas, call your local adolescent health center.
