Re: lump near armpit
As your doc notes, there is breast tissue extending all the way into the armpit area. It's called the Tail of Spence- google it! it's fun! Anyway, it's not uncommon for women to get clogged ducts way back in the tail area. Treat it as you would any clogged duct- moist heat, massage, frequent nursing, changing baby's nursing position to ensure thorough drainage. If the lump doesn't ever seem to get any smaller (plugged ducts often feel slightly smaller/softer after nursing), and it persists beyond a week or two, or if you start to have symptoms of mastitis (fever, chills, aches and pains, redness or red streaks, pus-y discharge), then it's time to call the doc.
