I’m an 18 years old female. I just noticed this armpit bump I have while showering. If I extend my arms or press it, it kinda hurt; and because I got scared I search it up, it says if you’re using anti-perspirant deodorant this may cause a bump and I’m actually using that kind of deodorant for a while now but maybe other than that, there are other reasons as to why it suddenly appeared. I already told my Mom about it and she said I don’t have to worry that much but I still am😅 Thank you so much to those who’ll answer

Thank you for your question. I understand your worries regarding your condition.

For your information, there is no valid research stating that anti-perspirant deodorant can cause a bump unless your skin is sensitive enough to get irritated by the deodorant or shaving routine. Besides, the bump on armpit usually caused by:

  • Enlarged lymph nodes
  • Cyst
  • Infections
  • Inflammation of lymp nodes
  • Lipoma
  • Breast diseases

You may want to check with your doctor if the bump:

  • Keep enlarging
  • Painful
  • Change in color
  • Multiple
  • Other bump on your breast

Get through your day healthy and energetic.

I cannot give an exact diagnosis by only knowing your symptoms. If you still worried about your condition, do get a proper medical consultation at clinic.
