Swollen gland in right armpit, no other symptoms.

Yesterday I noticed that I've got a swollen gland in my right armpit. It is painful to touch and about the size of a pea. It is still there today. I don't have swollen glands anywhere else or any other symptoms. Any idea what is going on??

Re: Swollen gland in right armpit, no other symptoms.

I would not worry about it unless it lasts longer than a couple of weeks. There are lymph nodes under there which can become inflamed over basically nothing. I have had this before. You could I dont know, have a pimple on your shoulder and it will get inflamed. If you are concerned call the doc but i know for sure i have had this. good luck!

It may not be a lymph node but a plugged sweat gland. Sometimes deodorant will clog the outlet to a sweat gland causing inflammation. If it doesn't resolve in a couple of weeks, check with your MD.

I agree that it sounds more like a clogged sweat gland or a cyst of some sort. Try some hot, damp compresses on it for 15 mins. 3 times a day. If it's not better in a week, call your doctor. If it gets worse, don't wait that long. I hope you feel better soon. I have had those and they are painful and rather unnerving.

Do an internet search on swollen glands. You will find all sorts of information on the subject. It can explain how certain glands swollen in differen places can be signs of different types of problems. I found it very helpful. Good luck!

Madame - How is your swollen gland? Have things cleared up? Keep us posted! I'm interested in if you found out what the cause was, etc.... Hope you are doing better!

Ive still got a small lump in my armpit. It was sore for a few days but the lump remained. Today the lump is sore again but it seems smaller than before. I think it might be an ingrown hair because I don't have any other symptoms.
