Was a black dot, I think I made it mad

I had a pinhead size black dot appear on my palm. Ignored it for about a year. Slowly turned into something like a round light-brown freckle, maybe 5mm diameter. Nothing at all like a mole (not raised, not irregular edged) but then after a while the area under the freckle to started to ache. A very low-grade pain. Not really sure how to define it. Deep in my hand. Nothing to keep me awake at night. And yet... so I went to dermo three weeks ago. He said definitely nothing, but he'd be happy to biospy so he scooped it out. Results came back negative last week. The scar has almost completely healed - No sign of any kind of pus. Did not get infected although it is still sore. I'm keeping my eye out for reappearence of a dot in the sunken area - nothing so far. And yet...

The deep pain came back. Slow at first, now worse than before. And now my armpit hurts with some tender lymph nodes.

Will go back to doc next week to have him look. Except there is nothing to see!!! Palm looks perfect.

Any thoughts? Thanks,

Doc didnt know either, but he didn't think it a big deal. Prescribed antibiotics for a couple of days.
