Lump under arm

Hi CD, I have a small pea size lumb in my armpit it seems slippery moves a little and sometimes disappears and then returns. Funny thing, every time i decide to go to the doctor it disappears.
I''m a bit worried now as I am 7 weeks pregnant.
Thanks

Hallo Kristen
If it comes and goes it is probably a sweat gland that gets inflamed from time to time and probably nothing to worry about (especially if it is lying just under the skin).

Hi Meme, thanks for your reply, but this has been going on a month or two before the prgnancy and when I finally decide to go check it out it disappears - weird.

AS far as i know your armpit area is part of your breast tissue. maybe it''s just the swollen glands from pregnancy??
