almost certainly of little or no concern
as you may know the armpit
or 'axilla' as we call it
contains lymph nodes just like you feel in your neck when you get a cold
these lymph nodes can become enlarged in response to any kind of infection, and you might not even feel sick
the most important thing you said
is that this is going away.... getting smaller
yes, I think
I think your doctor, by Tuesday
It just started Tuesday
is ulikely to be able to find it.
got it.... hello
with such a quick onset of symptoms
this is simply nothing to worry about at this point
especially with it getting smaller
Can't help but worry about the C word when doing research online...Lymphoma
that's very common
and certainly understandable
that you would go to the internet and find some scary stuff
but nothing about your story makes me think in the least about any kind of cancer.
ok...good to hear...
lymph node enlarging common?
cancer and lymphoma comes on slowly over time and is associated with other symptoms
lymph node enlargement is common
it's just your body behaving properly
ok...you sure right? :-)
i am sure that I am right that there is almost no chance that this represents anything to worry about... not cancer, not lymphoma....
I think you can rest easy till Tuesday
good deal...thank you for your time!
and at your appointment your doctor will probably tell you exactly what I just did
you are most welcome
BTW...I did just have a phsical a few weeks ago...
nothing unusual then
even bettter, that adds to my sureness that this is nothing to worry about.
ok- have a great day!
if this has been helpful, please remember, positive feedback is always greatly appreciated...
be well, and don't worry!
I think I was imagining things when I said yesterday that the bump under my arm was getting smaller....I don't think it is.
It's still continues to be very tender and sore and has remained the same size for the last few days....
Dr appt still scheduled for Tuesday morning....anything I can do in the meantime to help with the pain?
got it...thank you!
Follow up from my appt this morning....
Clogged duct....he said it was pretty bad.
After he saw it he said "you wanna fix it"
I replied "Is it going to hurt"
He said I may feel some poking and proding but nothing too bad....and what an understatement that was....
After numbing it he was slicing and dicing and poking and proding for a good 10 minutes....even after more shot to help ease the pain it was still a lot of pain....
3 stitches later I'm not home resting for the remainder of the day with an antibiotic and pain medicine.....
I'll be in some pain for the next couple days...but glad that part of it is over...
Thanks for your help
very strange... so you had a small abscess.... glad you had the appointment. sorry it was painful!
thanks for the update.
