Hi. Armpit lumps can be caused by fat deposition or because of lymph nodal enlargement. Long standing lumps need to be examined further to rule out cancer. Sudden onset of pain and new lumps need to be evaluated for any infection Any family history of cancer needs to be considered
Next Steps
Consult oncologist for examination USG of both breasts.

25 years it is very unlikely cancer. Do USG of breast. Most probably fibroadenoma (benign tumor)
