My 82yr old husband has several lumps in his armpit. He is being treat with antibiotics, pain meds and an attitude of wait and watch to see if the abscess quits draining. His Dr. has suggested he may need surgery to remove all the lymph glands in his armpit. Does this seem like a logical path of resolution?
