    Armpit swelling possibly

    Hi

    So Iím in a lot of anxiety lately. I had some pain in my right armpit before Christmas. Itís eased a lot but never went away. I canít feel any lymph nodes I donít think but there is def a different between my two armpits. The right is definitely bigger swollen. Itís towards the back of my armpit and I can only see it when my arm is stretched. It feels like itís over my armpit bone. I think itís been there a while but Iím so anxious i canít remember. Im cant find any info of people having something like this. Iíve lost some wait so I donít think it could be fat and itís too far back to be breast issues. Any ideas

    thanks

    There are plenty of muscles and soft tissue that could be hurt, and take a while to get better.

    It’s kidna over the bone and it just feels a bit fatter I guess arms arent exactly the same. I’ve lost some weight on purpose so it could just be the right arm is s little fatter. I can’t feel anything when my arm isn’t stretched up. I’m just very worried

    You don't need to be very worried. The human body isn't symmetrical, you are right, and to be honest pains and sprains happen all the time. You can expect 'wear and tear' to become more of an issue the older you get You will find that there was something you did with your right arm - reaching up or repetitive - and the fact its already got much better in 2 weeks is a sign that it will recover.

    Why are you poking and prodding? Surely that is why one side feels different?

    I came to a and e for another reason and I asked the dr to look at my arm. He thinks itís benign but I have to contact my gp to get an ultra sound. Iím so scared.
