Enlarged Axillary Lymph Nodes
My wife US Showed Bilateral fibrocystic disease and ductectasia (BIRADs II). small right sided fibroadenoma (BIRADs III). Bilateral enlarged axillary lymph nodes, likely reactional. What should She do? Is it serious? Thanks
Talk to doctor: Your doctor should be the one who can discuss these issues with you. It does not seem that she has any cancerous lesions but then one needs to examine the lymph nodes to be sure. Read more
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. Read more

22yrs old mammogram normal enlarged right axillary lymph node 7mm left axillary lymph node 3mm waiting biopsy results. Family history breast cancer?
Be patient: Even with a family history of breast cancer, it would be very rare for a 22 yo to have the disease. You only have about a 14-15% chance of developing breast cancer, unless there are multiple family members who have the disease. There are many reasons for lymph nodes to enlarge, many benign, so just wait for the results. Good luck. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Presented w/ chest pain and shortness of breath. Ct w/ contrast showed enlarged non-specific mediastinal & axillary lymph nodes. Should I have biopsy?
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. Read more
My left axillary lymph nodes are enlarged. I have no cancer and HIV symptoms. What are the other reasons?
Enlarged lymphnodes: Lymph nodes are filters on the lymphatic channel. They act like barriers to anything the body might wish to contain...Cancer, infection, and some autoimmune diseases. If you have an infection 'down stream' the nodes will catch the infection and protect your body from the organism. Definitely get them checked out...Your body is fighting something. Best to listen to it. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Axillary adenopathy: It would be very unlikely that breast CA would cause symmetrical and bilateral lymphnode swelling. Sounds much more likely to be an infectious/viral process. Read more
Immune System: You should celebrate not worry. An active or reactive lymph system represents immune health. Your immune system is doing its job and functioning normally. Read more
What's the natural size of axillary lymph nodes in their normal state? I heard they can be up to 2cm. If that's true, how come they cannot be felt?
What could be causing my swollen axillary lymph nodes? Swollen more on left side but are slightly swollen on both sides
Need more info: This could be systemic infection, a non-infectious inflammatory condition like sarcoidosis, malignancy either of the lymphatic system or spread of tumor from elsewhere, and there are several remote other possibilities. Go and see a doctor and have this evaluated. Best wishes. Read more
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. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
There is a heterogeneous fibroglandular distribution. There are axillary lymph nodes present bilaterally. Mammogram report, any worries?
Heterogenous: Fibroglandular distribution is simply an assessment of breast density, and doesn't imply that there is any abnormality. "Dense" breasts may make the mammo more difficult to interpret, and therefore may decrease the sensitivity for detecting cancer, however. Axillary lymph nodes are commonly present on mammography, and unless they look abnormal, are not a cause for concern. Read more
