Are There Lymph Nodes In Your Arm
No: Cold viruses may cause mild enlargement of nodes in the neck only. Lymph nodes act as a trap or filter to prevent germs from spreading to other parts of the body, and in so doing become enlarged and tender. Cuts on your arm, or using a razor to shave the axilla, can introduce bacteria which get trapped by your lymph nodes. **See your Dr if swollen glands persist SEE:http://bit.

If you have a bad cold can the lymph nodes under your arm pits get swollen and/or sore? What are some things that can cause this, if not the cold?
Could: Happen. Lymph nodes will get sore when body trying to fight off infections. Could be due to the cold could be skin irritation. But wait until you feel better. If the nodes don't calm done look for other causes. Since you are not feeling well I believe this is the cause
Ultrasound 4 LN.: You can find a lymph node by ultrasound, and if you’re lucky you can find some qualities that might suggest whether this lymph node is benign or malignant. But those findings are not absolute. If question exists as to benignity or malignancy, biopsy should be done.
Immune system: The network of lymph nodes in the body are part of the bodies system for responding to multiple insults including trauma and infection.
Not routinely: Most of the lymph nodes in the axilla are located along the axillary vein which is high up in the axilla. There is a fat pad below the vein which is easily palpable and occasionally nodes there can be felt, even though very small. If they enlarge and increase in number then biopsy should be performed. Check the arm and chest wall on that side to be sure there are no responsible skin lesions
Lymph nodes: That in your armpits, are clusters of small round nodes in the armpits closer to your body, if you pap late them and they are slightly swollen, that might indicate infection of inflammation in the surrounding area that drains its lymph to these glands, hope that help
Yes: The lymph nodes of the upper extremity are divided into two sets, superficial and deep. The superficial lymph nodes are few ; of small size. One or two supratrochlear nodes are located above the humeral medial epicondyle (inner side ; superior to elbow). The deep nodes are chiefly grouped in the axilla (armpit), but a few may be found in the forearm ; arm along medial side of the brachial artery.See 1 more doctor answer
Usually not: Lymph nodes respond to some inflammation or infection, which monkey bars should not cause. Hanging from the hands or other parts of the body should not bother the armpits. However, hitting the bars with the armpits or holding on to a bar with the armpits would squish lymph nodes and probably worsen them. If nodes enlarge for "no reason", a primary care doctor can investigate.
Can you get lymphphdemia. From a maintenance I.v. In your arm where your lymph nodes have been removed after 18 years?
Yes: You should NOT have an IV in an arm that's been adversely affected by excision of lymph nodes in the past. Maybe your doctors or nurses overlooked this fact? What it means is the microstructural architecture of your arm (the lymph channels) are affected and there could be microscopic (or macroscopic) scarring there. Definitely I want that IV out-pick another site ASAP. Arm swelling makes it urgent
Inflamed/Infected: Lymph nodes are the body's "army barracks" preparing or fighting a "war". The enemy is usually suspected in an area served by those particular underarm nodes. Inflammation or infection - viral or bacterial - can cause lymph nodes to swell. There are several reasons these particular nodes could be swollen. However, they are very important due to relationship to breasts. Check it out.
Eczema: Yes, chronic eczema can cause your lymph nodes to swell because of low grade infection.
Blocks lymphatics: The lymph nodes are accumulations of white blood cells which filter the extracellular water being carried back to the blood steam from all over the body. If the nodes are mechanically removed the lymph channels are no longer connected resulting in accumulation of extracellular water (edema) upstream from the removed nodes. Please see question 750811 for more details.See 1 more doctor answer
Can you feel lymph nodes under arm even when not swollen? What are they shaped like when not swollen?
Lymph nodes: These are seldom capable of being palpated when not enlarged for some reason.
Had breast u/s showed multiple fibroadenomas, complex cyst and bilateral axillary lymph nodes enlargement. Painful breast+ arm with edema. Possibly?
See specialist: You have a "busy" breast and with your young age it is probably dense as well. I highly recommend you find a breast specialist who can review the films and examine you. I have several other posts on Fibroadenoma and Cystic changes (Fibrocystic) that you can review. Good luck.
I've been really tired and the lymph nodes in my arm pits are really tender but I have no other symptoms. Any ideas?
See your physician: See your physician regarding your tender axillary lymph nodes. This may be a sign of infection, autoimmune process, or malignancy. Http://www. Nlm. Nih. Gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003097.htm
