Normal Size Of Lymph Nodes In Armpit
Can skinny people feel almost all their normal lymph nodes in neck groin and armpits? What size is considered unenlarged?
size differs: 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have 2 pea sized, rubbery, movable lymph nodes on the left side of my body (armpit and groin). I have no other symptoms. Normal CBC. should I worry?
Need an exam: Lymph node enlargement(lymphadenopathy) is often due to a recent infection and sometimes underlying malignancy, or other disorders. If the lymph nodes have been present for a long time without enlarging in size there is less chance of malignancy. It would be best to have your physician examen you.

Pain under armpits. Lymph nodes not enlarged, blood work is all normal. Dr thinks its muscle. Its been over a month. Less in the evening, more daytime?

19 y/o, 2 movable lymph nodes in right armpit. Not growing in size, sometimes aches, bad anxiety, docs don't seem bothered. Can't stop worrying.
See if this helps: It's good that they are moveable and sore. Malignancies often are fixed and painless. Also good that the doctors are untroubled. It 'd be better if they were able to convey relief as well as lack of concern, but tight schedules make that hard. A likely cause is an infection of some sort. A cyst is also a possibility (nothing to fret about). Don't use anti-perspirant. Give it time, then ask again. ...Read more
