    Yes. I've even had a lymphatic massage when I was having a lot of breast pain on one side. I felt like my lymph system was just backed up on the left side. I had other stuff ruled out by doc, so it just made me feel better to do it. I think it helped. I went back and had it again the next month again bc it was bothering me again at the same time in my cycle. Not sure if you are having any of those symptoms too, but I think one side is bigger than the other anyways.

    Hi Anne, I too noticed like a fatty mass near my left armpit 2 years ago. It wasn't hard but it looked significantly different from the right side. I eventually went to my GP as I was a bit worried.

    GP wasn't sure, but after breast screening it was identified as fatty tissue with no worrying features.

    Also talking to my mum and sister they have something similar on one armpit only, so it is probably hereditary for me, and I think lipomas, fatty tissue are common in many women.

    Maybe it would be best to get it checked out with your GP to give you some reassurance. Xx
