Hello everyone! Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
I have a question about a lump in my armpit that has been there for at least a month. I think it is a swollen lymph node. Its rubbery, no pain or redness and seems to stay about the same size. It is towards the outside of my arm, furthest away from the breast when my arm is raised above my head. I am 26 months into my cml journey and was MMR at .0061% in May. Tasigna is really doing its job! My side effects are bone pain, headaches, some eczema on my eyelid, stomach pain and vertigo that seem to take turns cropping up. nice of them to take turns!
A few years ago I would never have worried about one armpit lump but since cml, I now tend to immediately assume the worst about every ache and pain! I really hate to go to the doctor for nothing and look like a hypochondriac!
What code my lump be? Should I be concerned? Could it just be another side effect?
Thanks for being here!
