Hi thanks for using HCM.

Usually arm pit lymphnodes does not point for ovary infection. For your ovarian cyst you should get operated.
Hope you dont have any skin infection. Get done your breast examination, mammography, chest xray and USG abdomen. This will rule out any major problem. Hope I answered your question. Wish you good health.

Take care

Lymph node in axila could be due to some superficial skin infection. Do self examination of your breast for any lumps regularly. Cyst in ovary is not related to your lymph node in axila. Because lymphnodes drain a particular area in our body.ovary drains to lymph nodes around umbilicus. Cyst which is present in your ovary needs to be further evaluated. Consult a gynaecologist for your cyst management.
Have a good health, take care
