?There are many causes of development of lumps in the axilla/armpits. Some
of these are common and other rare. also some are benign and not dangerous
and while few may be malignant or cancerous. The lump you have asked for
its seems to be a simple fat pad or lipoma. It is likely NOT to be
malignant because of the simple reason that it is there for so many tears
and has not grown and not caused any symptoms as well. However, if possible
she must get this checked from a qualified surgeon for proper assesment and

From the prolonged history, it sounds more like a benign lump. However all
armpit abd breast lumps in women in this age group ate suspicious of
mslignancy until evaluated by a physical examination, mammography and (at
least) a (needle) biopsy. A breast cancer detected in an eatly stage is
much bettet abd much more likely to be cured than one that is ignored or
missed due to lack of evaluation.

Dear Patient,
If the lump is there for about 25 years it is least likely to be dangerous. It could be lipoma.
Get an ultrasound and xray breast done and show to breast specialist.
