Shoulder Pain And Swollen Lymph Nodes
I had swollen lymph nodes a long time ago and when I got rid of them the area between my neck and left shoulder got swollen it wasn't even painful its?
How?: I don't understand "when I got rid of them" since I don't know of any way to reduce lymph swelling (until the disease process has been controlled or faded away by itself as in the case of a viral infection) without medication. Is the swelling still present? If it has been present for more than a couple of weeks or getting worse, better consult your doctor. ...Read more

It depends: It depends on the size and number of enlarged lymph glands in the armpit.

1cm swollen lymph node under chin from 1 week. I don't have any other symptoms. I have shoulder pain. May be cancer? I am 18
Probably not: You are 18, and your lymph nodes are supposed to swell when you have an infection or even a canker sore. It's way way more likely that this is just a normal lymph node doing its job--helping your immune system fight off bacteria and viruses. 1cm is still normal size, and 1 week is a short time. I bet you won't be able to feel it in another week! Try not to worry. Shoulder pain=unrelated. ...Read more
