I thought lymphnodes where more round? They can be inches long?
Oncologist: DocPhilMD, Medical Doctor replied 11 months ago

It is probably a lymph node or a blood vessel

It is not cancer at your age.

Not even possible really

I would get it checked eventually but not a worry

Yes, lymph nodes can be very long and thin too

Well it doesn't seem to be swollen. And is like finger nail thin. You can only feel it when my arm is relaxed. If I flex it's not noticible at all. Why isn't it possible to be cancer at my age?
Oncologist: DocPhilMD, Medical Doctor replied 11 months ago

It is most likely a blood vessel or nerve then

there are a bunch of nerves that run through the armpit. Called the brachial plexus

No one gets breast cancer at 23.

It is virtually impossible
