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

I feel a lump under my arm pit but i think its a lymph node, is this something to worry about?

Depends: How long has it been there? A few days, weeks or months? Is it painful. Did you have a recent injury, cut or infection further down that arm in the past few days. Watch it closely. If the lymph node is noticeable after 3-4 wks, seek immediate attention with your doctor. The arm and 3/4ths of the breast drawn to the lymphatics in the armpit. If it goes away, it was a reactive change. ...Read more

What to do if I could feel a lymph node under my arm and also a lump in my breast I'm 19?

Cancer unlikely: A lump in a young woman's breast is likely a benign fibrous adenoma and a lymph node in the same woman is likely a reaction to a minor infection from a small injury from shaving. Having said that a doctor should review the situation and determine if any further diagnostic procedures like mammogram, ultrasound, and fine needle aspiration are warranted. ...Read more

I stretched my left arm over my left shoulder-not something I normally do. A itching lump arose 2 days later, but no pain. Did I strain a lymph node?

No: No, you can't strain a lymph node by stretching. If the lump is itching and is in your armpit, it could be a clogged sweat gland that has caused a pimple to form. If it gets big enough over the next few days, it would be good to see a doctor to know what it is. ...Read more

Swollen lymph node under arm! what can I do?

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. ...Read more
