Hello. I had a lumpectomy 3 weeks ago. They also removed 2 lymph nodes for testing. The test showed that the lymph nodes are clear. But my armpit is getting very uncomfortable, painful and swollen. Is there a cream or something that I can use to reduce this? 

  • Hi  

    That's good to read that your lymph nodes are clear of cancer. However, as you say that your armpit "is getting very uncomfortable, painful and swollen" you should contact your breast cancer nurse today to get checked out in case you have an infection.
