RUQ pain, scan shows small gallbladder polyps, sore armpits, told it was due to virus. Why don't I have other viral symptoms?

RUQ pain ( ultrasound only showed very small gallbladder polyps, less 4mm), blood work normal. The puzzling addition to the RUQ pain is sore armpits/ lymph nodes well over two weeks. I was told small gallbladder polyps unlikely to be causing the RUQ pain and sore armpits lymp nodes likely to be a virus, but I have no other symptoms?

Dear friend, thank you for choosing HCM.
really small polyps won't cause much pain.
pl. describe pain in details. type, quality, aggrevating factors, relieving factors.
also lymph nodes are ususlly enlarged in infections, less commonly other causes,
pl. get the nodes examined physicallly by a well qualified doctor, get complete blood panel(which is normal here), sos a LN biopsy. is it on one side or both?
but usually we try a course of antibiotics before biopsy.
have you had one?
pl. ask your doctor about a week's antibiotics. RUQ pain really is not clear without a giood description.
then we can decide further.
I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily.
Take care and please keep me informed of your progress.
Good Luck !
