Pea sixed lump in axilla 5 years after surgery
Any newly found lump in the axilla needs to be evaluated. They are not always due to a malignancy. It can even be a residual from your past surgery.Any kind of inflammation in the breast can cause this to happen. Please see your surgeon, gynecologist or breast surgeon to be evaluated.

Lumps in breast or underarm years after breast augmentation
It is interesting to know that women with breast implants have a slightly lower breast cancer rate than those without, though facts are that women with breast implants can indeed develop breast cancer. Any lump in the breast or under the arm should be investigated so see your doctor for a breast exam, and a mammogram.
Lump under Arm Pit
Without an examination I cannot offer any diagnosis, but I would call my Plastic Surgeon or GYN doctor as soon as possible to schedule a mammogram.
