No: Thrush and GERDS represent an inflammatory process that rarely causes the inflammation to involve region nodes. If this were true for the tongue leukoplakia one would see submaxillary nodal involvement which rarely if ever happens and GERDS involving the esophagus if presenting with nodal involvement would cause mediatstinal and not chest wall problems. Have LMD check the so called nodes.
