Question: Armpit lump

I have a swollen lymph in left lower armpit, level with breast, can it be from a bad tooth?

User avatar Hello LynneLola,
No your tooth does not drain to the armpit lymph system. You are advised to seek medical attention ASAP to rule out any serious condition. Let me know how it turn out.
Best regards,
