Swollen lymph nodes underarm
I am a 35 year old woman and my swelling,pain and small lump started about a year and a half ago. I is just on the left side. My primary care physicians concern was that the breast on that side was larger and it hadn't been in the past. So I had a mammo, u/s and breast mri...all clear (1 1/12 years ago). I told the breast specialist my main concern was in my armpit. She told me she only focuses on breasts!!! Now it grown and my whole upper arm, around my abdomen and ribcage are swollen and I can't even feel the original lymph node under my arm with all the swelling! I also have new swollen nodes around my clavicle and sternum. Anyone else had anything similar or advice? Also, My insurance just changed so I do not have the $2000. co-pay to see doc right now! Thanks!

I don't have any swelling but a lot of pain in that area which seems to be getting much worse over this last week.I have had a doctor examine me but I am not satisfied that there is nothing wrong. Why the pain?

Good morning, I am 20 years old and about a month ago I noticed a small lump under my right armpit. It was so small that I didn't really think to be bothered. Here it is a month later and it has grown very large. I asked my husband if ne noticed it and he said it was big enough not to be missed..Now it hurts and is very tender to the touch. Ehat should I do?

LUMP UNDER RIGHT ARMPIT
Having the same issue and it is scaring the life out of me. Lump in right armpit, but now seems to be getting bigger. Had full bloodwork done this morning + a chest X-ray. Currently on antibiotics for 10 days. I did notice mention of energy drinks, I am bad about that and will stop until this thing can go down. Nice to see that am not the only one, for I have been unable to sleep tonight, from so much worrying. I will mark this site and check periodically. Good suggestions and overall good support. Thank you all.

Flu and pain under right armpit
Just got over a nasty bout with the flu, feel pretty much 100% now, but notice a slight pain under right arm pit, very seldom does it flare up, only with certain movements, and I don't detect any swelling. Do lymph nodes react to Flu viruses in this manner or could it be something else?

swollen under left armpit and under left breast
Hi...2 1/2 years ago I had my baby girl. 2 months later my fiance gave me herpes. I have read that some lymph nodes swell during an outbreak. About 2 weeks ago I was giving myself a self breast exam in the shower and noticed a.slight lump under left breast. Well, I kept squeezing both sides comparing for days, just panicking. Now I have a.painful and large lump under left armpit which I know to be a node. I have the same type under that breast. I am bruised from pressing so often and hard.I stopped looking on internet because I get panic attacks and the mention of cancer or lymphoma terrify me! I did read that stressed breast tissue could cause swollen lymph nodes. I am having my 2 nd real outbr thanks eak in 2 1/2 years and I ache everywhere. Runny nose, muscle sorenesss...the whole deal. My hope is someone knows.if the.herpes outbreak or manipulation of my breast( roughly) could be causing the swollen lymph nodes and in my breast. I reiterate, my legs, neck, back, everything ache. Hoping its from the outbreak. This.is embarrassing to me but I need advice. Thank you all for listening.

I found a swollen and sore lymph node a few weeks ago under my right arm. First my doctor put me on oral antibiotics but when I went for a recheck the lump was still there. I had a biopsy last week and I go back to the doctor in two days for pathology report.

swollen lymph nodes under arm
I'm a 28year old female. I noticed a few Weeks ago that my armpit was swollen on the left. (left underarm) it was sore and quite swollen. I had been wearing a really tight elastic sports type bra for like 4 days and read that can keep lymph nodes from doing their job and can keep lymph fluid from filtering.. So away with the bra.. Also i stopped using my antiperspirant as i read that the aluminum in it is really bad and can cause problems and even cancer.. So i tried not using it.. They lumps seemed to go down a lot.. I even tested the theory by using my antiperspirant again and once again my left armpit swelled up.. So i haven't used it for a while but tonight i noticed that the swelling is back and my left breast has lumps.. They feel connected like a strand with bumps along it.. And i know lymph nodes go into breast tissue.. I have no insurance right now but im going to have to find a way to see a Dr. because it is worrisome..my family has no cases of breast cancer, but still i worry.. also i notice i have some chest wall pain, right over by the lumps.. I hope its nothing but I'm still freaked out...

I have two small lumps in my armpits, one under each arm in exactly the same place, for about a week now. While one hurts a lot more than the other, isn't it very unusal for diseases and cancers to show in both armpits? Do I need to worry or is it more likely caused by environmental factors. I won't be able to see a doctor for about two weeks!
I had them before years ago, causes by wearing a too tight top, and they went away soon after I shoved it to the back of my wardrobe, but I've been wearing baggy jumpers all winter so can't see any correlation there.
Any advice would be appreciated, I'd like to try to find the cause while waiting to get home to my family doctor.

Lymph nodes in both armpits, surgery to remove 1 to six nodes
I am going in on the 11th of January, 2013 to have surgery done on one or both of my armpits. I have a total of 6 lymphnodes that have grown more in size over two years. Does this mean that I have cancer or can I just relax and know that it is nothing? I am 42 years old. please any thoughts on this matter I am very open too.

I think its a lymph node
Cant help but worry about worst case for me. Noticed a lump under skin about 3 months ago. Kept an eye on it for growth, and noticed it turned red and painful on skin above. Went to dr and was prescribed antibiotics for 10 days. No significant improvement...back to dr and now prescribed steroidal cream...hoping it helps, but afraid it's futile. Very scared of it being lymphoma...bad timing as our baby is due any day...wife says dont worry, but im so scared!!
32 yo male...lump above armpit sort of where pec meets shoulder.

Painful & swollen benign lymph nodes under armpits
I had a thyroidectomy due to cancer 5 yrs ago. For the last 15 months i, ve had swollen lymph node on my left arm. Mammogram came back normal. Went to a breast specialist whom biopsied node and it came back as benign. Told me it was nothing to worry about. Mild pain still there. Now same issue on the right armpit. Went to breast specialist and she said not to worry cause its probably due to menopause. Pain on both sides intermittently radiates all the way to my elbow. I'm 59. I'm getting worried. I want swelling and pain to go away. Dont know what kind of specialist i should see next. Pls advice

Swollen Lymph nodes
I have been going through the same situation for over a year, on and off. My doctor recommended I switch to are aerosol deodorant instead of the solid I had been using. It went away for a while but has kept coming and going. Then another physician put me on antibiotics but that didn't do anything. Then for a while i thought they were gone, but now it has return and is very sore.

I am not sure what to do at this point. I was told to take Tumeric and/or Thymex supplement to take away any swelling and/or infection.

Any suggestion??/
Thanks
T.W.

Swollen under arm Lymph Nodes
I have had swollen lymph nodes under my arms off and on for 15 years at least. When first diagnosed my doctor told me too stay off caffiene and take Ibuprofen when I get a flare up. Well I dont always stay off caffiene and notice when I over do for several months I get a flare up. All my mammograms come out negagtive for lumps/cancer. Once you get a flare up it seems like it will never go away, but it does. I suggest always getting checked though. Mention to your Doctor the caffiene and any other diet concerns as mentioned in previous comments. Also menepause and deodorants as factors.
