I'm 44, for over a year i'm having a swollen node under my right armpit, and two others on the right arm itself... one at the upper back arm and one on the lower front arm. My arm is paining especially at night and i cannot sleep on my right side... i had a mammograms, scans, MRI, but they all came clean... can this be cancer in the chest cavity?
How are you? What other symptoms are present? It is good that the initial diagnostic tests were normal. Axillary lymph nodes may swell from an injury or infection to the arm or hand and possibly malignancy. The imaging studies may help detect cancer. But definite diagnosis is usually with biopsy. It is best that you check with your attending physician for proper evaluation. Direct clinical examination is highly recommended. Take care and regards.
