Lymph Nodes



Abel was complaining of pain under his left armpit, so I had him lift his shirt up so i can see if anything was there. I touched the area he was saying that was hurting and sure enough, I felt palpable nodule about the size of a marble. This wouldn't bother me so badly except that this is the same side that the CT scans picked up a nodule under his left armpit along with the 2 nodules in his lungs and the docs didn't know for sure if there were malignant or not. Back then, it wasn't palpable nor painful and now it's both so I'm worried. Last week his WBC tanked again and now this nodule is there and visible.
