Need exam: A sore throat will cause the lymph glands in the neck to enlarge, but not the axillary or arm pit nodes. If there is not cut, abrasion, or rash on the arm, then you need to be see your DR. If you have the cut, abrasion or rash, and the nodes do not go down in two weeks, then you need to be seen. ...Read more

If you have a cold, can the lymph nodes under your arm pits be sore? Thanks!

If you have a cold, can the lymph nodes under your arm pits be sore? Thanks!

No: Cold viruses may cause mild enlargement of nodes in the neck only.. Lymph nodes act as a trap or filter to prevent germs from spreading to other parts of the body, and in so doing become enlarged and tender. Cuts on your arm, or using a razor to shave the axilla, can introduce bacteria which get trapped by your lymph nodes. **See your Dr if swollen glands persist SEE:http://bit.ly/1E6i2EW ...Read more

What can cause swollen Inguinal Lymph Nodes (also neck, arm pit and behind knee on occasion) consistently for almost 2 years? (All on left side only)

Questrionble: Lymph nodes as you describe only appear in armpit but very high or deep in adjacent to the axillary vein. If this is an area above the armpit is it a lesion in the msucle region of the pectoralis which makes up the medial wall of the axilla. Here one can hve fibromas or lipaomas. Check with LMD to be sure this is an axillary node. If it persists or enlarges bx may be needed. ...Read more

I have a swollen lymph node in my arm pit it's causing some discomfort and is painful at times. Is this serious/other symptoms I should look for?

Behavior over time: This may not be a lymph node. Other things under the arm swell and get painful. If there is clear redness, warmth, pain and discharge or a central "plug" to the lesion with a very superficial appearance this is very likely benign. If there is progressive enlargement without the signs above it is time to see a doc. ...Read more

I noticed a lymph node in my arm pit then mid cycle bleeding (my periods are always every 28days) could it just be stress?

Yes and no: The bleeding could be because of stress but the enlarged lymph node is unlikely 2 b due 2stress.It is much more likely that your immune system is fighting off an infection some where in your arm.This can be due 2 nothing more than a razor scrape when u were shaving your under arms or a scratch that u didn't even notice.As long as u don't have other enlarged nodes or other symptoms, it should b ok ...Read more
