Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Can a benign solid node that is small in axillary node in armpit hurt a little?

Can a benign solid node that is small in axillary node in armpit hurt a little?

Yes: 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. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. Can't diagnose the cause of this lump. Breast cancer usually would not suddenly appear because it takes a while to grow. It could be a lymph node. I don't know if you have been getting mammograms. It would be important to see your doctor. The doctor may order a chest xray, a mammogram and an ultrasound of the lump. Please get it checked. ...Read more
