See your doctor: Hi John, the armpit dull pain that comes and goes could be a lymph node or something else. Inflammation or a benign growth Or infected Nick from Cats could cause benign Painful lymph nodes. Hodgkin on NonHodgkin lymphoma can not be diagnosed by History EVEN with telling symptoms but by patHOLOGY. SeeMD THIS week !!!! to first make sure it is A lymph node and if it warrants biopsy.
