Hi there,

Thanks for your query.

If the lymph node in the left armpit is growing steadily and is >1cm size, you should get an FNAC or a biopsy of the node done. Enlarged lymph node can be- besides other causes- due to infection or growth in the breast; or may be part of the generalized swollen glands in other parts of the body.

You should therefore, certainly seek a second opinion.
