Pulled muscle?: A doctor can check the armpit to see what it might be. If lifting a lot of heavy stuff, and not normally working out with weights, one might have pulled an armpit muscle.

It may also be a hematoma in the muscle (blood in the muscle), a huge lymph node, or an abscess. ...Read more

Consider a recheck or a 2nd opinion. ...Read more

They usually grow due to infection such as a virus or a nearby bacterial infection (even in days). The best thing is to talk to the doctor about it. Sometimes the swollen glands are only in one area, and sometimes they are in several areas or "all over". ...Read more
