Armpit swelling & burning pain for 3 weeks. Now have burning pain in shoulder blades & stiff back. Do I have cancer?

Armpit swelling & burning pain for 3 weeks. Now have burning pain in shoulder blades & stiff back. Do I have cancer?

Have anexam: The lymph nodes in your arm pits may be fighting some sort of infection and your depleted condition and tension/fatigue could have affected your back.

Ask the doctor who does your exam/lab work to evaluate that possibility. Best! ...Read more
