lymph nodes under arm pit?

I am just wondering, on and off for 2 weeks my arm pits have been tender to the touch and if i raise my arm. Now i was wondering what that meant, i guess it means im getting sick, but is it serious? i feel a bump dead center of my arm pit on my skin and its wierd, just wondering is it a fluke or what.

also i can actually grab the "bump" too and lift it but its small

i did some sit ups and i use my arms and a lever and i stress both arms a lot, i also lift heavy things at work...

Just wondering if you ever went to the doctor for this? My father had a lump that grew fast and became very sore within two weeks. If you haven't already, please have it checked out.

Re: lymph nodes under arm pit?

If the "bump" is on both arm pits, then it's most likely either your normal physiology, a virus, or a strain. If it's on one side only, it could still be any of the above, but it's of more concern. Either way, if this is definitely something new that you've never felt before, you should see your doctor.
