Write-up: Golf ball to baseball size lump under his left armpit; Soreness underneath his left arm; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient). A 56-year-old male patient received first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, Solution for injection, Lot number: EW0196), dose 1 via unspecified route of administration, administered in left arm (left shoulder) on 30Jun2021 (at 10:45AM) as single for covid-19 immunization. The patient medical history was not reported. The patient''s concomitant medications were not reported. On 01Jul2021, the patient experienced soreness underneath his left arm. On 02Jul2021 (late afternoon the day after the first injection), the patient experienced golf ball to baseball size lump under his left armpit. When he just got into the shower a little bit ago he discovered the source of the soreness. There is a golf ball to baseball size lump under his left armpit, the same arm he received the Covid 19 vaccine. Patient has not seen his primary care doctor or gone to the emergency room. He noticed the soreness in his left armpit late yesterday afternoon, 01Jul2021. When he got into the shower today, 02Jul2021 and lifted his arm, he thought holy cow, there''s a lump. When probing for reason why he decided to get the Covid 19 vaccine he reports it was work related. He either had to wear a mask or get the Covid 19 vaccine. He adds if this persists for another day or two he was going to see his primary care doctor. He had a Covid 19 test done on the 23Jun2021 that came back negative. When probing adverse events with any other vaccine he reports soreness or stiffness. He has served in the military and has had multiple vaccinations. He doesn''t recall any vaccine specifically that caused stiffness or soreness. He was asking if there are any other recommendations on how to get rid of the lump under his armpit. The outcome of all the events was not recovered.
