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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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

Behavior over time: This may not be a lymph node. Other things under the arm swell and get painful.

If there is progressive enlargement without the signs above it is time to see a doc. ...Read more
