Hi! My daughter (8 yrs) just woke up complaining of pain in both armpits. I immediately think of swollen lymph glands. Any ideas?

Hi! My daughter (8 yrs) just woke up complaining of pain in both armpits.  I immediately think of swollen lymph glands.  Any ideas?

Agree with you: I think you may be right on track! Many viral infections, especially, can cause lymph nodes to swell, and the armpit nodes are commonly painful. I would check to see if she has a fever at all, and look for any other signs of viral infection (sudden fatigue, sinus drainage, runny nose, dark circles under eyes, etc.). Also gently check the neck for large nodes. Fluids, vitamin C, l-lysine, and REST.

What are the causes of slightly swollen lymph glands in the throat?

What are the causes of slightly swollen lymph glands in the throat?

Monitoring Centers: The lymphatic system absorbs and carries things too big to go into the arteries and veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. The lymph nodes "taste" the lymph to see if anything bad is there 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.

What can I do about swollen lymph glands?

Biopsy: The only way to definitely know why lymph glands are swollen is biopsy. However, most of the time they are benign. Benign glands are generally small, painless, soft, and located in several areas. They also tend not to get larger, and sometimes wax and wane in size over time. A growing lymph node, or one which is painful or very hard to touch should be looked into.

Swollen lymph glands but not sick? Do I have cancer?

Swollen lymph glands but not sick? Do I have cancer?

Unlikely: The most common cause of swollen lymph nodes is infection (bacterial or viral). It sometimes can take 1-2 months for the enlarged lymph nodes to return to their normal size after an infection. If the lymph nodes continue to grow, occur in different areas of the body, or you start getting sick symptoms (fevers, unexplained weight loss, night sweats, fatigue), i would go see your doctor.

Why won't my swollen lymph glands go down after having glandular fever 3 years ago?

Why won't  my swollen lymph  glands go down after having glandular fever 3 years ago?

Hard to say: If you are also having other symptoms (fevers, chills, nightsweats, weight loss) you should have a full physical examination. Sometimes it is necessary to remove a small amount of the lymph node to make sure there aren't any other problems like a smoldering infection or lymphoma.

Can gingivitis cause swollen lymph glands in neck and groin?

Can gingivitis cause swollen lymph glands in neck and groin?

Yes and maybe...: Gingivitis will start a response in your immune system that would potentially involve lymph nodes in your neck. Oral infection does not however directly recruit lymph nodes in the groin area. While it's possible you have a systemic condition that is affecting both areas, it may be multiple problems at the same time. Brush & floss daily; see your dentist & your physician.

My 14 year old son has high ldh levels with protein inurine and swollen lymph glands. What could this be?

My 14 year old son has high ldh levels with protein inurine and swollen lymph glands. What could this be?

Needs evaluation!: This is a difficult question with no easy answers. However ldh elevation indicates that there are cells that are being killed. The protein in the urine could be from a variety of sources and of course the swollen lymph nodes suggest either infection or cancer. Your son needs to have a complete history and physical with perhaps other studies done to find out what is causing this.
