What causes swollen lymph node under armpit before menstrual cycle?

I noticed that the lymph node under my right armpit is usually swollen right before my menstrual cycle and then leaves after its over. However, I am perimenopausal and my cycle is off somewhat. Is it normal for my lymph node to be swollen during irregular cycles?

Hi,

It’s not something normal, it should not happen. I suggest you visit a gynecologist so that he/she can have a proper clinical examination, a biopsy may also be needed.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Naira Jahangir, OB and GYN Specialist
