Aching Lymph Nodes In Armpit
Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells/digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph everywhere for bad stuff like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more
19 y/o, 2 movable lymph nodes in right armpit. Not growing in size, sometimes aches, bad anxiety, docs don't seem bothered. Can't stop worrying.
See if this helps: It's good that they are moveable and sore. Malignancies often are fixed and painless. Also good that the doctors are untroubled. It 'd be better if they were able to convey relief as well as lack of concern, but tight schedules make that hard. A likely cause is an infection of some sort. A cyst is also a possibility (nothing to fret about). Don't use anti-perspirant. Give it time, then ask again. ...Read more

Can the lymph nodes in your armpits hurt a few days before your period? I can't feel them but under my arms are a little sore. No visible difference
More likely breast: Rather than lymph nodes, I suspect that you have a bit of "ectopic" breast tissue in your armpits. This is not terribly rare. Some women have breast tissue in the armpits. Just as the rest of your breast can get swollen and hurt before your period, so can this tissue. Best to see a doctor at this point in your cycle to be sure. ...Read more

Lymph nodes in armpit very swollen- 2 months. chest hurts. sore throat. always sleeping. low WBC. high liver enzyme count. high iron count. help?
Continue workup: Your physician will continue the work up to figure out what is going. S/he has the advantage of knowing much more about onset and relationships between the various symptoms and findings, your age and risk factors, etc. I suspect some imaging (ct scan or PET scan) will be done soon and possibly even biopsy. Do not delay in getting any of the tests done. ...Read more
I have been dx'd with scc of the skin. I know it has the potential to spread to lymph nodes. I have a pea size bump in armpit. Should I be concerned?
Probably not: You gave no details about the scc or about yourself. Where is it? How old is it? How large? Ulcerated? Do you have an organ transplant? Hiv? Leukemia? Is the scc in an old burn scar? In a chronic ulcer? Most scc are easily cured and are not life-threatening. If they are on the lips, ears or genital areas they are more serious. If you have impaired immunity it is worse. ...Read more
