interesting.... alright. The tendon (im assuming) under my left armpit is tight (therefor a little sore), and visible. What is it, and how do it therapy it?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I see

Most likely a pulled or strained pectoralis major or minor muscle which attaches through the axilla or arm pit

Work on stretching this muscle by reaching up and out, grabbing a door frame and reining away from your hand to feel the pull in your chest and axilla

Rest the arm and pectoralis muscle as well

Your symptoms don't sound like cancer or anything worrisome

let me know if you have other questions.
