im a thirteen year old girl. i was changing and my armpit started hurting so i rubbed it and i noticed there was a bump. its as big as a dime and its not visible. i have read up on bumps in armpits but im not sure. i havent told anyone yet and im wondering if i should? it only hurts if i press on it or my shirts rub on it. i dont know what it is and i dont have insurance right now so i was wondering if anyone has any idea. i am just 13 and i wonder if its a stress **m????

  • Hello, a member of my family has also got that it could be many different things, some could be; Extra Breast tissue, Irritation from deodrant, Irritation from when you shave your arms.. I dont wanna frighten you but it could be something worse. If i was you tell someone close to you, and go and see ur doctor to just check it out :) in that case you will get answer to what these are and it i will put ur mind at rest :) Let me know how you get on!Best Wishes,Amanda92
