Hello There...
Welcome to healthcare Magic forum..
It Looks like your friend might be suffering from some kind of infection of lungs which might have lead to chest pain and Enlargement of lymph nodes under the arm pit. It is advice-able to consult a doctor immediately, get appropriate investigations done and Start on antibiotics. If your friend is having pain on the left side i would recommend to get a ECG done to be on safer side..
Hope this helps..
Take care..
