Does underarm swelling automatically mean a person has breast cancer or something very serious? What else can it mean?

If indeed it's a lymph node swollen, it could be due to anything from a plugged breast duct that got a little infected, to an ingrown hair in your arm pit, to a systemic viral illness, to absolutely nothing. Try a few days of scheduled anti-inflammatories and hot compresses, and if it isn't better, let your doctor check you out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I'm curious as to what does it mean if an ultrasound of the thyroid has enlarged lymph nodes at the neck area?
May not be serious: It depends on several things: how large are they? The larger they are the more concerning. Are they tender? If so, they are probably from infection or inflammation, rather than cancer. Enlarged, non-tender lymph nodes in the neck which don't go away are cause for concern and should be sampled with a needle biopsy which can be done with ultrasound guidance. ...Read more
