lymph node swelling that is tender may indicate an infection of your teeth, mouth, etc. A doctor is the best person to determine if the lymph glands are swollen from an infection or another process

Hopefully is not serious but could be. You need a good physical exam. Your doc will decide if further workup (like scans or a biopsy) is needed. Best to you.

Numerous issues can cause lymph node enlargement but the hard mass in the armpit does give one cause for concern. Without knowing your history and being able to examine the areas involved, it is difficult to give specific advice. However, I would urge a complete evaluation including CT scan if this persists.

Lymph nodes swollen in neck, hard, not big and im not sick. What is this?

Monitoring Centers

Neck
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

What do hard, swollen, extremely painful/tender lymph nodes in the neck mean?

Diff possibilities

Neck_pain
Tender is usually a good sign & if you have a few relatively small tender lymph nodes & you struggle with allergies or have a cold, those could cause it. However if you have a very lg or hard, immobile node(s) it's best to get that checked out. You might also want to check for swollen lymph nodes elsewhere in the body & if you find some, that would be another reason to get checked out
