Are you sure that they're lymph nodes? It is more likely to be the tail of the breast for me.
Do you have any primary disease? Since you've seen a doctor, it's better to consult the result with him/her.
Axillary lymph nodes are the lymph nodes located in the armpit. Fatty Infiltration of the lymph node is very common, especially in the aged, occurs in the mesenteric, abdominal, and axillary nodes.

Depending on the volume, radiography may be necessary. Mammography may be necessary as well. The result can be either benign or malignant.
It sounds you've already had imaging test. Fatty axillary lymph nodes can be benign or malignant, and it's not directly associated with the size of the lymph nodes. An radiologist knows the difference. If you're reading a report from a radiologist, and it didn't say anything malignant, they should be benign.
