    I noticed about 2 days ago that under my right arm was really swollen and hurting a bit, it was when I was at the gym so I was moving quite a lot and it was getting really irritated, when I got back it was really sore and red.
    Today there's like a swollen/lumpy bit but it doesn't hurt unless I touch it.
    I usually shave under my arms everyday but have done this for years so don't see why shaving would have anything to do with it. I haven't shaved since though because I don't want to irritate it.

    It's not near my breast part of my underarm it's more near the top of my arm.
    I've heard so many things about having swollen underarm like breast cancer, lymphoma and HIV so I'm a bit worried about it should I go to the doctor? :/

    I get that too. Sometimes I would get that once my period is coming soon though. But I rarely get it now, I have no idea why though.

    I got my period saturday for the first time in a few months because I did my pill back to back for 3 months but I've done that before too. I'm gonna try and get to the doctors tomorrow but it's really hard with being in uni all day and trying to get an appointment in a city centre doctors!
