I'm new here, and I've posted this in two other forums in better hope of getting an answer.
I'm a 21 year old female and about a week and a half ago I noticed 2 large painful, hard, unmovable lumps in my underarm with the skin being pink, turning to a light purple. Ingrown hair is ruled out, as well as absess because they shrank back and never had a head or exit. They are now two unpainful pea-sized hard unmovable bumps that can only be felt and not seen. About 5 days ago I again noticed one large lump that, up until today, were also hard, painful and unmovable. Now the dark reddish (almost bruised) spot, about a dime in size, feels soft and squishy to the touch. Surrounding the main area is a painfully swollen area about the size of a silver dollar that cannot be seen but only noticed by touch. Occasionally the pain radiates all the way to my finger tips. I have checked my breast for lumps because I've heard breast tissue can also be under the arm, and nothing there. Money is tight, so should I be worried enough to go see the doctor? Any ideas?
Any help at all is appreciated.
