I have a swollen hardened lump under my arn that is really hurting today, and reddened and hard under the skin the size of a walnut. I just took a hot shower and let the water run on it and it feels better. I always have swollen glands under my arms and in my groin at times, but never had a palpatable area just swelling and tenderness. I will get it checked on Monday if it is not better. It's funny how it just came up today, right after my mammogram which by the way was normal.
