Customer Question

I have a cord like swelling under my left armpit, very mild pain to the touch. Kind of like a string of pearls under the skin? I'm a very healthy and active male 56 years old

Thank you for your question.

Sounds like small lymph nodes or lymph glands to me.

Usually these nodes get enlarged due to an infection and go away in due course of time.

So I would not worry too much if I were you.

Kindest regards
