What causes lump in arm pit and inner bicep?

I have a lump in my arm pit the size of a golf ball, maybe a lil smaller. also a lump the size of a grape on my lower inner bicep, both on my right arm. They both appeared 2 weeks ago and they are slightly painfull and have reduced in hardness and size since then. The day before I saw these, I did a lot of physical labor, with lots of heavy pulling and lifting. Is this a lymphnode case or muscular? I also take 1000 mgs. of L-Tyrosine a day with 2000 mgs. of Vitamin C and B 6. could is also be a reaction to amino acids?

Please help. .... -Geoff

Welcome to Health care magic.

1. The history of bilateral axillary lumps over two weeks - suggest me as lymph nodal enlargement.
2.This type of lymph nodal enlargement is seen in case of localised and systemic infection / inflammation may cause the similar symptoms.
3.Possbility of muscular pain is possible , lumpy ness is not seen after labour work.
4.In this case i would recommend you to gat an ultrasound examination of bilateral axillary region - to find out the nature of the lesions / lumps, its source and extensions.
5.After that first the underlying cause should be treated, if required an FNAC - fine needle aspiration cytology might be necessary to evaluate the types of cells.

Hope it helps you. Wish you a good health.
