Causes Of Axillary Lymph Node Tenderness
I have an enlarged axillary lymph node under my left arm. It is visibly noticeable and quite sore. I've often had enlarged lymph nodes while I was sick bit I feel fine and this one is quite a bit larger than usual.
Lymphadenopathy: Studies show that approximately 1.1% of primary care patients presenting with lymphadenopathy have malignancy. The axillary lymph nodes drain the breast, chest wall and upper extremity. Lymphadenopathy that is persistent >3 weeks should be investigated. Most causes of axillary lymphadenopathy are reactive in nature. A full medical history and physical exam should be performed. See your MD.
Had biopsy on axillary lymph node. Results came back "lymphoid hyperplasia". I understand that this is benign, but what could be the cause?
Often unknown: Something as simple as a hangnail can do this. Your defense team does a good job keeping you safe.
Monitoring Centers: 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. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well.See 1 more doctor answer
Axillary lymph node mobile but feels matted. Ultrasound says it looks benign and not enlarged. What might cause this?
Inflammation: Most axillary nodes are reactive or inflammatory. Sometimes can feel matted. Ultrasound fairly accurate at characterizing nodes.
Abcessed tooth: An upper tooth that is abcessed can cause pain that seems like it is in the ear. Axillary lymph nodes are in the chest and arm pit, and would not be swollen due to an abcessed tooth. You need to see a dentist for the abcessed tooth. If you have swollen axillary lymph nodes, you need to see your medical doctor asap.See 2 more doctor answers

I had a FNAC on enlarged axillary lymph node, Neg. CA. Biopsy showed, Fibroadipose tissue, and rare skeletal muscle fragments? U/S in Cpl. Mo.
Unclear question: From what you described you did not have an enlarge node, but a fibro-fatty mass, and you do not have cancer in the armpit.
Regional spread: Many tumors, as they evolve, develop the potential to spread. The lesions develop matrix metalloproteinase which forms small e-cadherin from the cell cement and allows for spread. Regional nodes are a common site and for lesions on the arm and chest, spread is to the axilla. Lt. breast carcinomas as they grow and spread frequently are noted in the left axillary lymph nodes as metastatic adenoca
Flu shot reaction: Yes, as a secondary reaction you can get a swollen acillary lymph node.
Would a cancerous axillary lymph node be hard on the outside but soft in the middle, and would it be red and bruised looking?
Axillary lymph node dissection 2008/ lumpectomy, then bi-lateral mastectomy. The left side still painful at the site of sentinel. Is this normal?
found out I have a benign calcified axillary lymph node from ultra sound and mammagram. I was wondering if I should do any follow up such as a biopsy?
It depends.: Dense calcifications are usually benign. Certain patterns of node calcification can be seen in metastatic breast cancer, thyroid or ovarian cancer. Coarse intranodal calcifications suggest benign fat necrosis or granulomatous disease. If your calcifications are typically benign, you probably don't need any follow up. Talk to your doc about the results.
Enlarged and firm.: A normal lymph node is about the size, shape and consistency of a partially cooked kidney bean (small, bean-shaped, and soft but solid). A lymph node involved by metastatic carcinoma would be enlarged, irregular in shape and would feel more firm / hard to the touch (like a pitted date). A node with carcinoma might also have a woody cut surface and might be 'fixed' to adjacent soft tissue.See 1 more doctor answer
What does progressive transformation of germinal centers mean - in relation to his axillary lymph node biopsy.
A reaction pattern: Ptgc is a benign pattern of exaggerated response in some enlarged lymph nodes (chronic lymphadenopathy). There is weak association with hodgkin's disease. Although ptgc is not considered a premalignant lesion in this latter case, your doctor may follow you and possibly biopsy/remove any enlarged lymph nodes in the future (if any) for a similar examination.

Specifically,: It means that in a localized spot (focal) there is thickening. Some experts have suggested that thickening or hyperplasia (cell proliferation) may indicate the presence of cancer, but there is no agreement that this non-specific finding definitely indicates cancer. It can result from other reactions within the lymph node. The size of 4.4 mm is smaller than most lymph nodes involved by cancer.
Is it possible to have cancer in one axillary lymph node and there to be no cancer in the breast?
Cancer node/breast: Yes depends on where cancer is from and kind.
