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. ...Read more

Possibly viral: if you have other symptoms such as fever , aches, malaise. Check with a private doctor to have definitive tests, especially if you noted enlarged nodes suddendly without any associated pain, tenderness or apparent illness. The cause need to be known because most causes are treatable. In your age, mononucleosis is prime suspect but you need to be seen. ...Read more

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells/digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph everywhere for bad stuff 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 more

I exclusively pump milk for son. i noticed a gland under my armpit No lump jus feels like a rolling vein or something. Is it a lymph node swollen?

Could be?: It is possible and could be a location for a lymph node. Without a physical exam it's hard for me to say exactly what it is. So glad you are getting that good breast milk for your baby! My other questions would be... Is the lump sore or tender? Is there any redness overlying? Does it move with your finger? Or does it seem to be " fixed" Do you have a family history of breast cancer? ...Read more

My lymph nodes hurt. They are not swollen just hurt. Neck, armpit, chest, groin. All periodically. I have had bloodwork and x-rays no lymphoma. Idea?

See your doctor: Blood work and x--rays do not exclude the possibility of lymphoma. But if the nodes are not enlarged, lymphoma is extremely unlikely. Viral infections such as mono may lead to tender nodes. Discuss it further with your health care provider. ...Read more
