Swollen lymph nodes with discoloration in the armpit. Family history of cancer. Concerned

Hi, I am thirty four and eight and half months prego. I have had swollen lymph nodes for many years but now for many months my lumps under my arms are huge and swollen and look black and blue. They do not hurt a little tender if I am pushing on them. I have also cysts they found in my throat the other day. There is every kind of cancer that runs in my family including lymphoma, breast, goiter, thyroid, cervical, ovarian, and heart problems.
Going to have an ultrasound on my armpits tomorrow, what do you think

Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about your problem. If you are saying that these lymph nodes have been present for quite a few years and have started increasing recently, you should have them evaluated by a surgeon to rule out a cancer. USG will help in the diagnosis.
Whatever treatment is required for this problem can be carried out once you deliver.

Hope you get well soon.
