Hi. So i just went to the emergency room 5 days ago and they drained an abscess/cyst from my right above my underarm.
Worst pain ever! I pointed out a hard lump in mmy armpit
As well and the dr tried to drain it but nothing came out.
Now that hard lump has seem to have spread and feels like it tunneled its way over to the other area
Above my armpit where the doctor drained the abscess. Its like 3 inches long. Doesnt
Hurt to the touch, but hard to stretch my arm straight up. I rweally dont want to have it sliced open again because that
Hurt so bad, but i dont wanna have it be something worse. I do have a history of swollen lymphnodes in said armpit as well,
But no previous cysts or anything like this before. Please let me know if you have been theough this before and what happened
