Thanks for writing to us.
axillary lymph nodes may swell due to any infection in the area they drain. So one may get swollen axillary lymph node in any infection or inflammation of arm, mammary area or axilla itself. Sometimes gland involvement may also be seen due to tuberculosis or lymphoma or breast carcinoma.
In your case as your breasts get tender and sore often, please XXXXXXX a gynaecologist to rule out the causes for same. Fibroadenosis is one such cause.the inflammation of lymph node may be linked to tenderness in breast area. So please fix an appointment with your gynaecologist.
Hope that helped.
Take care
