Good night, I’m a 17-year-old woman, 3 days ago I had a cough and cold dissertation fever, then I felt pain in my armpits, it turned out there was a lump as small as a green bean in my armpit and my hand felt a little sore, then it would feel painful if held. Do you think it’s dangerous or not? and how to eliminate it?
Thank you for your question.
Basically, when the body has an infection, there will be inflammation in several parts of the body, including lymph nodes. Lymph nodes are organs that play an important role for the body's immune system. Generally lymph nodes have a small size and not terapa, but if an infection occurs will cause the gland to enlarge due to inflammation. Lymph nodes are in several members including the body, neck, armpits, and groin.
Enlarged lymph nodes can also be called lymphadenitis. Which is the most frequent cause depends on what type of infection you are experiencing, for example for the most common lung infection is tuberculosis.
Lymphadenitis is characterized by the occurrence of swollen glands in the neck, armpits or groin, the skin around the glands swells and aches, pus appears, fever, no appetite. To see what infection you are experiencing, it is necessary to check with an internist. Keep in mind to determine the diagnosis of the disease it is necessary to do more interviews and further physical examination.
