Lymph nodes and boob lumps?

What should normal lump free boobs feel like?

My armpit lymph nodes keep swelling up, get annoyingly sore for a couple of days then go back down again. Just had a feel of left boob, close to armpit and it feels like a wee lumpy bit, it's not sore, but a wee bit sort of lumpy, squishy... can only feel it when left arm is over my head.

Apart from annoying lymph nodes I'm ok in every other way, tired and a bit stressed out with work stuff but that's normal life eh?!
Never had boob issues before, don't want to go to gp and sound over anxious, cos I'm not, I just don't know what normal should be like.....?
Any thoughts?

I don't think anyone knows what normal is. It depends on the size of your boobs and your age as to the density of breast tissue.
It's whatever is normal for you and you should just compare to previous checks.

As you are unsure but are experiencing lymph nodes in the armpit then I suggest you visit for GP for a check. They may be up because of a general infection in your body but it's better to be safe than sorry.

Everyone thinks of lumps as being Breast Cancer but in reality you can have BC where there are no palpable lumps at all and it is only discovered via mammogram (as I found out).
But, often when breast lumps are found, they are something innocuous.

Don't worry but do get it checked for your peace of mind.

If in doubt get checked out!

Any change, however small and not normal for you should be checked.

Get checked over by the GP, it's better to be nothing than leave it and it be something.

I'm sure you're worrying about nothing, but you are concerned because you have posted about it. Put your mind at rest by getting checked.
