Hi Deb,
The enlarged lymph nodes in both axilla could be a recurrence of your breast cancer.  It could also be from a benign condition like an infection.
I agree with your decision to consult your doctor.  A biopsy may be needed in order to determine the pathology of that enlarged lymph node.
Good luck.
