Dear friend, thank you for choosing HCM.
nothing to worry much.
it shows normal breasts.
but small ~2 cm lymph nodes on each side in the axilla (armpit), which is non cancerous (benign)looking .
lymph node enlargement commonly occurs due to infections somewhere in the draining region.mostly upper extremities.
pl. look for any infections/ lesions on arms etc. did you recently have any fever?

usually they will go away with 7-10 days of an antibiotic course under medical supervision. if they do not, then they will investigate for rarer causes like Tb (common here in India, not abroad), rarely cancer.
in your case it is benign.
consult your doctor abut this issue and take it easy. it is a nimor issue.
I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily.
Take care and please keep me informed of your progress.
Good Luck !
