About ten years ago I had a lymph node under my armpit that was so big!  I actually didn't notice it until I dreamed I was itching under my armpit, and in my sleep I felt it.  Next morning I thought I'd dreamed it, and imagine my terror when I felt and THERE IT WAS!  HUGE!  Went to the doc..he looked at it, felt it, and said it didn't look scary to him, but if it bothered me, I could have it removed.  STILL TERRIFIED.  He had an ultrasound done - looked benign.  I was still so scared, so I had it removed.  The surgeon took it out, biopsied it, and it was benign.  Both doctors said that OFTEN lymph nodes get big for no apparent reason.  That was TEN years ago, and I'm fine.  Have a lumpy scar under my arm where my lymph node used to be.  I ignore it.

I felt it again and it just feels bigger.  It was smaller/harder to find 3 weeks ago. :traurig001:

Honestly to me, its because you are touching it. It doesn't always get bigger right after you touch it, sometimes it takes a bit of time (a few hours, maybe a day).
Please leave it for a few days and chances are it will shrink. if it is the same one you had since you were little, then you are aggravating it for no reason because you probably will always have it. A lot of people just have nodes like this

This actually made me LOL.  What part of "wait at least two weeks before you touch it again" sounded like "check it again in about 6 hours"? 

MAKE A CALENDAR REMINDER FOR 2 WEEKS FROM TODAY TO CHECK IT AGAIN.
FORGET IT UNTIL THEN. 
CHECK AGAIN IN 2 WEEKS.
IF IT'S BIGGER, GO TO THE DOCTOR.

It will be if you touch it! you know when you continue aggravating it that it may not go down at all? Plus u said IRS a node u had for years, how can it possibly be bad?
They take 6-8 weeks without touching to go down. If it gets bigger it will be noticeably so without your touching.
