lymph nodes in breast tissue

I recently had a mammogram and it show two lymph nodes present.  I now have pain in both breasts and under the arms.  I'm a runner and these nodes are becoming such a problem that the ones under my arms now hurt when I put on my tight fitting running clothes.   Are all nodes in the breasts considered dangerous?  Should I be proactive with this and listen to my body?
