Hello Mrs. Rani Octaviani thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
Keep in mind beforehand, that lymph nodes are organs that are spread throughout the body and function in the immune system. Where the immune system functions to protect the body from viral infections, bacterial infections or abnormal body conditions / abnormal. Generally lymph nodes are found in several parts of the body, such as the chin, neck, behind the ears, groin, back of the head, armpits. Because the breast is very close to the armpit, then there are lymph nodes that spread to the area around the breast.
When lymph nodes swell, then this indicates that the gland is working hard in fighting viral or bacterial infections or abnormalities in the body, which aims to protect the body to remain healthy and normal. Sometimes enlarged lymph nodes do not cause pain, but not a few feel that there is pain when the lymph nodes swell. Besides other symptoms that often appear such as rashes on the skin where the gland is swollen, body weakness, fever, weight loss, and night sweats but all of these symptoms depend on the underlying cause of the swollen lymph nodes.
We cannot confirm whether the swollen gland is a sign of a dangerous condition in your body. Because we don't check your condition directly. However, if you feel the gland is getting bigger and occurring for more than 2 weeks, getting more painful, and the texture has changed to become rather hard and not moving when shaken, then our advice is to check yourself again to ensure that the condition is not dangerous. So that we can convey, hopefully useful. thanks.
