Today I am feeling scared about the ultrasound lump results. I swear the lump is bigger and wider and hard now. I hope that the results come in today sooner rather than later I just want to know what is going on and I can’t stand this feeling.

Nervous today. The lump seems to be bigger and harder. Hopefully getting results today. I want this waiting to be over and the results to be benign

The lymph nodes in my arm pits will swell up from certain brands of deodorant! I doubt it's anything serious at all. I have one in my neck that's been enlarged since I was 4, I'm 31 now.

Sorry have not gotten back sooner about results re: this lump under arm. Finally ultrasound results came in last week and apparently though there is a lump, there is nothing that looks unusual or malignant about it. Given orders to take ibuprofen for four days and put on 15-minute cold compresses 3x a day. Didn’t do the latter (bad lack of self-discipline/self-caring sometimes), still planning to. Lump still there and making me nervous, was told at walk in clinic today, when I was in for bug bites, that if lump is still there, to have it checked out again. Knowing me it’ll be less than the 6 months recommended, I’m sure. Still have to talk to my doc on phone about results tomorrow (we only texted last week) so that’ll be good.
As usual, I’ll have a lot of issues to bring up w him. Ha ha :(

Hi, Anne. Great news. Thanks for updating us. Please do the compresses. I suggest to not use underarm deodorant to see if that makes a difference. My father had this same issue once and that is what the doctor told him to do.
