What is Axillary Breast Lump?

Also known as an armpit lump or underarm lump, an axillary breast lump is the growth of lymph nodes, fat tissues, or breast glandular tissues in the axilla (underarm). This tissue growth can be temporary or long-lasting depending on the cause. In the beginning, the lump only affects the aesthetic of the person but over time, the lump may also start to cause pain and irritation.

If you have excess tissues in the axilla and want to get rid of them, you can rely on Pristyn Care doctors. We employ the minimally invasive liposuction technique to remove the fat tissues and the minimal excision technique to remove the glandular tissues and lymph nodes. To learn more about axillary breast tissue treatment, you can talk to our medical coordinators.

Treatment

Diagnosis 

The doctor performs a physical examination on the patient to analyze the tissues present under the arm. The anisotropy (tissue stiffness) and hypertrophy (tissue thickness) are checked to determine the type of tissue in the lump.

For further analysis, the doctor recommends the following tests-

  • Ultrasound- This test helps to identify the structure of the underarm lump and abnormalities in the tissues (if any).
  • Mammogram- This test is recommended to rule out the possibility of breast cancer.

Procedure 

To remove the lump under the arm, Pristyn Care doctors leverage liposuction and excision techniques. The procedure is carried out in the following steps-

  • First, anesthesia will be administered to the patient. Usually, general anesthesia is used for the surgery. But in some cases, local anesthesia may be used.
  • The surgeon will mark the location of the incision and insert the liposuction needle in the target area. If laser liposuction is being used, then the surgeon will insert the laser fiber in the target area.
  • The fat in the underarm is broken down and extracted using a suction device.
  • If it is the breast glandular tissues that have reached the underarm region, the surgeon will use a scalpel or laser to excise the tissues through a 3-4 cm incision.
  • The incision will be closed with the help of stitches or surgical glue.

 

The entire procedure takes around 45 minutes to 1-hour maximum. The patient is discharged on the same day after the procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to tell if an armpit lump is benign or cancerous? 

There is a significant difference between a lump that is benign and the one which is cancerous. Both lumps start as a growth in the underarm. In the beginning, the lymph nodes grow large in size, and eventually, the concerning symptoms appear.

A benign lump in the armpit will have the following symptoms-

  • The lump will be clearly visible.
  • Size of the lump may be up to 2 cm.
  • The lump may change shape frequently.
  • There may be pain or tingling sensations in the lump.
  • If the lump is infected, fever may also come and go.

When the underarm lump is cancerous, along with some of the above-mentioned features, the following symptoms will also be present-

  • Loss of energy or tiredness that lasts throughout the day
  • Unintentional weight loss
  • Tenderness in the lump
  • Breathing issues

Depending on the stage of cancer, the symptoms may get worse over time if the condition is not treated.

Whether you have a benign lump or a cancerous lump in the armpit, both can be very problematic. The key difference is that a cancerous lump is life-threatening and a benign lump affects the patient’s life and physical appearance to a certain extent. In both cases, it is crucial to get the lump removed as soon as possible.
