Couldn't find what you looking for?


My wife was diagnosed with a finger nail sized growth from exam on lymph node, recently had mamogram which came clean. She feels no pain or even the ability to feel any lump under her left armpit where it was located. any thoughts???



First it would be a good thing to tell us where is the lump located? Human body has lymph nodes all over the body, and every one of them is in charge for different part of the body. Now, lymph nodes tend to get enlarged due to some infection in the body (viral, bacterial or fungal). Lymph nodes are a part of our immune system and they react when the immunity of our body is compromised.

However there are chances that lymph nodes get enlarged from cancerous growths. This is very serious condition where doctor should react immediately. If your wife using any medication right now? Did she have any complications before she noticed the swelling of the lymph node?
