Swollen lymph node or gland under armpit and swollen lymph node in neck

I have had a very large bump at the top of my armpit for quite some time...if i turn to the side and have someone look at my armpit it looks like i have a growth under the skin....i also have a large bump on the front of my neck...which is a lymph node

i have very large tonsils...i dont know if that has to do with anything

does anyone know what this could be from?

Re: Swollen lymph node or gland under armpit and swollen lymph node in neck

Hey there-
My son has always had problems with allergies and even had HUGE tonsils. Even when he was healthy, they almost touched. He had them removed.

He developed an enlarged lymph node on the right side of his neck towards the shoulder and back of his neck. I had it checked to be sure it wasn't anything serious.

My suggestion is that any time you have an enlarged or swollen lymph node, it's best to have it checked by a doctor.

Good Luck!! And let us know what you decide.
