    swollen armpit lymph nodes
    tndiuka posted:
    I have had a swelling under my right armpit for 4 months now. I had a mammogram about 3 weeks ago and it was clear. It did show swollen lymph nodes though. I then was given antiobotics for a week and no change in the swelling. My Dr. did blood work......don't know what kind....but was told it was normal. I then had an ultrasound and it came back clear but said I did have swollen lymph nodes. This swelling does not hurt at all. No redness around it or any kind of sore. The main problem I have is extreme bouts of fatigue. It hits all of a sudden and started about the same time the swelling appeared. I have no appatite at all. My question is should I presist with this or just try and ignore it? I'm 51 years old and my grandpa died at 76 with lymphonia. His started with just a swelling under the arm. Thanks for any response!
