Could poking and prodding at an already swollen lymph node generally make it stay swollen for longer/more sore?
No: Swollen lymph glands can arise from mononucleosis, tumor spread, an inflammatory reaction to a virus or bactgerial infection. The node if normal contains follicles filled with spaces producing large numbers of white blood cells to combat the existing problem. Prodding may only cause painful symptoms if excessive but not enlargement. ...Read more
I have swallon lymph node that keeps coming up and down all the time and is very sore. My blood test has came back clear. What could it be?
Your best friend: I've decided that some people have a heroic lymph node that simply decides to handle all the minor invasions by microbes all by itself. If you're not running a fever or otherwise obviously sick, and the node's not huge or attached to something it shouldn't be, and you don't have any signs of a deep infection in a sinus or something that the node drains, then just watch it. ...Read more
Infection: The lymph nodes in your armpit tend to trap infection from your arm & hand. Breast tissue drains there too. If you don't have any infection (redness, warmth, tenderness) elsewhere on said arm/hand, perhaps you have an ingrown hair or clogged cyst, both of which can get infected and become painful. Warm compresses are a reasonable 1st option. If not better, then go see your family doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I woke up with a swollen lymph node on the back left side of my neck. Quite sore and slightly painful?
Monitoring Centers: 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 2 more doctor answers
Okay so update to my last question, the lymph node by my boob is still sore, its not swollen, just hurts when I touch it.?
Get examined!: This is not normal. If you have not been seen, then you should. Serious things could be causing this and you would not want to delay. Not all enlargement and tenderness is due to infection. Depending on your age and other risks and issues, you may need a diagnositc mammogram, an ultrasound of the area or even an MRI of the breast. Start with a history, exam and then go from there. Antibiotics? ...Read more
My left under arm lymph node turned back and blue and very sore 2 days ago. Now the other arm pit is black and blue as well. What's going on?
Need exam: This is an unusual presentation. Of course, you can't actually see a lymph node beneath the skin, so technically you are describing the skin overlying a lymph node turning black and blue. Trauma which wasn't noticed could account for this but with a lump and both sides...unlikely. This needs evaluation by your doctor. A careful physical examination will lead to the next needed diagnostic steps. ...Read more
Depends: Not normal if persistent or if the pain or swelling gets worse. If symptoms prolonged to consult your doctor. ...Read more

I think I have a swollen lymph node in my neck. It is really sore. I haven't really felt sick. It is really sore. How do I treat it?
Swollen gland: Likely what you are describing is something called lymphadenopathy, which is swelling and inflammation of lymph nodes. This can lead to pain and can be aggravated by movement, depending on the location of the swollen lymph node. Generally speaking, most lymphadenopathy is caused by infectious processes. This could be viral or bacterial. If it is bacterial, the antibiotics can help.Try advil (ibuprofen) too. ...Read more

Four days ago I woke up and noticed a sore ball under the skin on the crease of my bikini line, I assume it's a lymph node. What's happening?
Not sure what lumps: look like but you would need for a doctor to look at it. Lumps can be infection, cyst, lipoma, lymph nodes (most likely). You can watch it to see if it would go back down or get worse too, if it's not causing any trouble. Enlarged lymph nodes should decrease in size or disappear after 3-4 weeks.
