    I have had those very hard and extremely painful lumps that when squeezed (with enough force) do have blood and gross stuff come out. They eventually don't hurt and then go away. I believe they are a cyst or a boil of some form.

    Haven't had one in about 2 years. Gosh I don't want one again.

    That just sounds like an absyss OP There are so many glands and things under our underarm - please do not google!

    I had a very painful inflammed lymph node under my underarm and had a scan - nothing showed up so they ruled it down to shaving. I now wax under there and haven't had a problem since

    Thanks for all ur replies.

    Ive seen a Dr and he is 99.9% sure its a infected sweat glad and that the hard lump is scar tissue from the initial infection and squeezing etc.

    If its still there is a couple of weeks they are going to check it out tho just to make sure but he also confirmed its not unmovable so really nothing to worry about. Phew

    Moral of the story....dont google and self diagnose!
