My 9 Year Old Says Her Armpit Hurts. It Feels Like The Lymph Node Is Swollen. What Could This Mean?

Answer

Megan, sounds like she has a possible infection. Since there's never in recorded history been a 9-year-old diagnosed with breast cancer, I wouldn't worry about that; but do call her pediatrician and describe her symptoms. He may want to start her on some antibiotics. Take care- PJH
