Small lump in armpit that moves position when I put my arm up or down. Dr says swollen lymph node and don't worry, but it's been there for 3 months?
Your doctor's right: Almost certainly. Leave it alone. I'm going to assume it's freely movable and not fixed to surrounding structures. Many people your age have these. If it's anything nasty, it would have declared itself. I trust you do not have a dominant breast lump or obvious illness that you're ignoring. ...Read more

Soft and moveable swollen / painless lymph node under arm. What could cause this? Been there for 8 months with no noticeable change.
