I have a swelling under my armpit. This has occurred before. Three or four times. This time under the right armpit. It doesn't stay for a long time. Disappears in a week's time. But occurs once or twice two months. Can you please help me with the problem. Please respond
Armpit has a large number of lymph nodes. This can swell up during any infection. You will need to get it checked if the swelling has been for a long time. An ultrasound of the axilla may be required to see what is the swelling made up of.
