Same thing here, I'm 32 no family history of cancer and I found a small lymph node a few inches below my right armpit near my breast. I went to my NP and although she thought it was likely just a lymph node, she said she never ignores lumps in the breast area and refered my the breast clinic for an ultrasound and consult with a surgeon. I'm breastfeeding so they won't do a mammogram. I have to wait another week before my appointment and waiting is the worst. I'm a pretty anxious person when it comes to health issues, so this is really difficult, but it's been helpful to read all your stories. This is the only site I've found (and I've spent hours upon hours researching on the net) that specifically discusses swollen lymph nodes near or in the breast. I also have hypothyrodism and my levels haven't been checked in a couple years, so I'm going to get that checked too since others have found a connection between swollen lymph nodes and hashimotos disease (although I've not been diagnosed with that). I'll post an update after my appointment and I'll probably keep coming back to this site in the meantime, so keep the updates coming! Blessing and prayers for positive outcomes for all!
