I have had a lump in my armpit for years, feels as big as a golf ball. I was told it was a lipoma for years form gp.
it hurts at the time of the month so went back to doc. Refered me for a ultrasound scan and nothing showed up, I was referred to consultant and within two minutes he had a feel and said It was a swollen lymph node. He said he could remove it as it was causing me pain. I've had the op pushed back twice.
Has anyone had my thing like this or been through lymph node removal and it been ok. I am concerned I should be pushing for op and worrying they'll find something more. Or should consultant be Able to tell what it is straightaway? Would anything serious show up on the ultrasound.
what is the op like and recovery time?
