Lumps under my arm

After the birth of my first child (now 3) i developed very visible lumps under my arm. i have sligh pain occasionally. I am very consious of this, as i don' t wear anything sleeve-less. who can i consult about these lumps under both my arms. I would like to receive treatment or surgery to remove them.

You can consult your GP for a full examination and he can perform an asperation of these lumps to get a histological diagnosis. This will also exclude the possibility that the lumps are due to infection of the hair follicles, in which case anti-biotics can resolve the problem.
