Patient

Q: I am 18 years old. I have a swelling of lymph nodes in my armpits. They swell very badly and due to the increased pressure they burst out giving out a large amount of blood and lymph. I feel fatigue and sense acute pain. Sometimes, I wasn't even able to move my hand. I consulted many doctors but each one had a different explanation. They prescribed tablets like mahacef , clavam etc. These tablets just worked for 2 or 3 weeks. The swelling repeated again. I am facing this from 4 years. What is the main cause of this ? Is it a viral infection or indication of leukemia or lymphoma or any such cancer ?
