Cancer In The Lymph Nodes Under The Arm
My mother sufered from cancer 6years ago and since they removed a lot of lymph nodes she had been sufferring from pain in her arm so what's the solution?

Cancer (lit, 'the crab') tends to send out tentacles that tie tissues down. Also the fact they're not growing is reassuring.

Swelling of lymph nodes under the arm is a symptom of breast cancer? Are the swollen lymph nodes supposed to be pain-free?
No neccasarily: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts.
