I am a 29 years old female. Recently I have undergone breast scan on my left breast for abscess detection. The doctor told me that it is in resolving stage hence no need to worry. However, in the report, it is also mentioned as axillary lymphadenopathy. The doctor has told me nothing about this while scanning. Can you please help me understand about this.

It means some lymph node in your axilla (armpit) is swollen. Is it on one side or bilateral. Do not worry it can be because of many reasons.
