Lymph nodes under the arm , I want to know can they become inflamed from using the monkey bars?

Lymph nodes under the arm , 
 I want to know can they become inflamed from using the monkey bars?

Usually not: Lymph nodes respond to some inflammation or infection, which monkey bars should not cause. Hanging from the hands or other parts of the body should not bother the armpits. However, hitting the bars with the armpits or holding on to a bar with the armpits would squish lymph nodes and probably worsen them. If nodes enlarge for "no reason", a primary care doctor can investigate. ...Read more

Can you get lymphphdemia. From a maintenance I.v. In your arm where your lymph nodes have been removed after 18 years?

Can you get lymphphdemia. From a maintenance I.v. In your arm where your lymph nodes have been removed after 18 years?

Yes: You should NOT have an IV in an arm that's been adversely affected by excision of lymph nodes in the past. Maybe your doctors or nurses overlooked this fact? What it means is the microstructural architecture of your arm (the lymph channels) are affected and there could be microscopic (or macroscopic) scarring there. Definitely I want that IV out-pick another site ASAP. Arm swelling makes it urgent ...Read more

Is it normal to be able to feel lymph nodes under my arm? All very small but I feel them

Not routinely: most of the lymph nodes in the axilla are located along the axillary vein which is high up in the axilla. There is a fat pad below the vein which is easily palpable and occasionally nodes there can be felt, even though very small. If they enlarge and increase in number then biopsy should be performed. Check the arm and chest wall on that side to be sure there are no responsible skin lesions ...Read more

Could you tell me if the axillary lymph nodes are removed, why would the arm be edematous?

Blocks lymphatics: The lymph nodes are accumulations of white blood cells which filter the extracellular water being carried back to the blood steam from all over the body. If the nodes are mechanically removed the lymph channels are no longer connected resulting in accumulation of extracellular water (edema) upstream from the removed nodes. Please see question 750811 for more details. ...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

Boil handled locally: If boil does not enlarge and is managed locally it should resolve. Most infections here are from skin appendages such as sebaceous cyst that is infected, a sweat gland infection or from hair follicle. Warm soaks, antibiotics if temp present should bring lesion down. If not incisional drainage may be needed. ...Read more

See specialist: You have a "busy" breast and with your young age it is probably dense as well. I highly recommend you find a breast specialist who can review the films and examine you. I have several other posts on Fibroadenoma and Cystic changes (Fibrocystic) that you can review. Good luck. ...Read more
