Checking breasts

Dear Doc

Regularly check my breasts for lumps etc. but would like to know how I would tell if my lymph nodes are a problem. Would I have pain under my armpits, would there be swelling there? Where exactle are these lymph nodes. Thank you for your advise!

Hallo Katie
the Lymphnodes are in your armpits and normally difficult to feel unless they are enlarged. Just feel for any abnormal lumps in the breast and under the arms and if you do feel anything, let your doctor check it out.
