Swollen armpit glands

Hi there. My 9 year old son suddenly complained of a terrible pain under his arm. It seems to me as if he's got a very swollen gland under his armpit. Is this anything I should be worried about? He has had this for the last 2 days.

Thank you for visiting health24.com.

The lump under your son's arm can have a multitude of causes and I therefore, recommend that you take him to a GP for a full examination and possible blood tests. It can be possible that he has a skin infection that is causing the swollen gland.

Kind regards
