I am 39. For the last few months, i get a painful swelling in my right armpit just 4-5 days before the time of the month. I also have low grade fever. Slight pain (on pressing the armpit) continues to remain even after my periods. Why is this? Shud i be worried?

  • I would have it looked at. You have lymph nodes there...could be infection, especially with the low grade temp.. Also there are other things it could be as well. Any time something is painful & swollen it should be looked at, especially if it has gone on for so long!
