A 32-year-old female asked:
Could stomach cancer cause an enlarged posterior cervical lymph node (back of neck)? or is stomach cancer most often associated with clavicular nodes?

Supraclavicular: It is very unlikely that stomach cancer would cause enlarged posterior cervical nodes without other symptoms. Even supraclavicular node enlargement as the first sign is distinctly uncommon. If you have concern, see your doctor for an endoscopy.
