Armpits have pain and lymph nodes. Why is there pricking pain?

I have all of a sudden ( three days now) developed pain in both armpits with a very small enlargement of my lymph nodes. I have also noticed a kind of pricking pain in my knee when pressed hard. Will there be pain in both armpits and knee for lymphoma? Do I need to go to a doctor at once? I am a breast feeding mother too. Kindly answer my queries.

HI DEAR thanks for your question,you have not mentioned in your question few important points ,like your age ,cough and fever.and weight loss,and your appetite.if your enlarged lymph nodes are associated with cough ,fever,and loss of appetite ,then most probably your having tuberculosis and if these symptoms are absent ,then chances are there that you may be having lymphoma.in either case diagnosis will be clinched by biopsy of your lymph node biopsy ,consult some surgeon,get excision biopsy of one of your lymph node and send for histo pathology,that will give you diagnose.yes you may be having lymph node in popliteal fossa (behind your knee joint)> don't worry both conditions are treatable
