A member asked:

On 6/20, i developed what i assume were swollen lymph nodes under my right armpit. they were sore 2-3 days and it was 2 days before my period. there is still a small lump there (just bigger than a pea). very mobile and not tender. cyst or lymph node?

It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. As an alternative you may watch and wait. You may feel the node every couple of weeks, if the lymph gland doubles in size, becomes painful, ulcerates, or other nodes become enlarged, or you develop fever, you should see a doctor. Wish you good health.

Can't be assessed online, good news though that it regressed, but you want to see your doctor for evaluation, best wishes

I'm on sure why you have this with your cycle. But if it is only the size of a pea and has gotten smaller this could be observed. If it persists or enlarges definitely see your physician
