Palpable infraclavicular lymph nodes

Normal lymph nodes should be nonpalpable. The presence of Montgomerys tubercles, which are tiny sebaceous glands on the areolae, is normal. The tissue of the breast should be soft. Tenderness to deep palpation is not as concerning as palpable lymph nodes in the breast assessment.
