WEll i guess i will get straight to the point. I have a bump in my right underarm and one in my left underarm. The are a small size and when you look at them on the outside it looks like a pimple but when you touch them they are hard. I hope this is not cancer since i have to bumps in either undearm. and i have heard that cancer only forms in place and starts w/ only one bump. Pleease help me! ps my friend told me it could be a pimple and that i should pop it. i did and it did not help it only hurt when i did that.

Hi qt,

Because no one here is a medical pro and can examine you, I recommend that you stop the guessing and simply head to your GP to have that checked out. Don't sqeeze the bumps, but let the doc decide what to do about them.

While being worried about cancer is good, freaking out is not, these bumps could be something as harmless as a an ingrown hair, fat cysts or (if they are in your armpit), a lymphnode.

So give your doc a call.
