This picture shows the lymph vessels in green. Anything that blocks flow can cause enlarged lymph nodes and swelling. This includes Infection, cancer, or blood clots. There's also "superior vena cava syndrome" which causes swelling in the face, arms and hands on both sides. See a doctor soon to determine the cause!

Dr. Michael Miller answered:

How come I have swollen lymph nodes in left armpit?

Monitoring Centers

Axilla
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

Could pierced ear infection spread to armpit lymph node?

NOT REALLY...

Swollen_glands
Regional/local lymph nodes can be affected resulting in swelling, pain, hot and tender. These are, pre-auricular, post -auricular, sub-occipital, posterior cervical groups. Lymph Nodes are the part of immune system, catch bacteria, kill them and after sometime come back to normal size. If bad infection, lymph nodes can become purulent. Armpit lymph nodes are far away to be involved
