Do you think I should worry lymph node doubled in size over one night?

Depends on the cause: We need to know the cause of your lymph node enlargement. If it is an infection, then it has no serious implications. But if it is a cancer in the nodes then we have to be more vigilant and make some critical decisions and move faster, yet a lot depends on the actual size of the enlarging lymph node. ...Read more

How do you calculate the ratio for a lymph node? I have one that is 2.2cm by 1.2cm.

You do not.: Not even sure what value a lymph node ratio would be or mean. When you exam for the presence of a node you assess its site, consistency, whether or not it is fixed to underlying tissues, what other symptoms are in progress, the history of the patient and the remainder of the exam. Suggest you see a doctor. ...Read more

I have lymph nodes for months, one lymph node going on a year, should I be worried?

I have lymph nodes for months, one lymph node going on a year, should I be worried?

It depends: Swollen lymph nodes occur commonly due to infections. If this is the reason they will not grow anymore after infection has resolved. So you do not need to worry about them as long as the node size is not increasing. If they show further enlargement and get
to > 1-1.5cm in size then you need a physician to check them out, just to be sure they are not due to cancer. Caner related nodes will grow in. ...Read more

How long does hodgkins take to spread from one lymph node to others or other organs?

How long does hodgkins take to spread from one lymph node to others or other organs?

It varies.: Unlike other cancers, hodgkin lymphoma does seem to begin in one lymph node area and then gradually spread in a predictable pattern to other lymph nodes and eventually to other sites like the spleen, liver and bone marrow. It is this behavior that made radiation therapy successful as a cure. However, the pace at which it spreads varies from patient to patient, but typically spreads over months. ...Read more

I have a palpable lymph node on my submandibular, one at each side. They re not painful. They re movable. Why is it palpable? Help please

Many causes possible: Normally, submandibular lymph nodes should not be palpable, or barely so in a very thin person. Some causes are dental infection, gingivitis, canker sores, facial skin infections (severe acne) or recent herpes simplex. Inflammatory conditions or even cancers of lymph glands can occur.

See your doctor for thorough evaluation. ...Read more

My left supraclavicular lymph node is big hard. Why only one side?

My left supraclavicular lymph node is big hard. Why only one side?

Cannot tell: A large supraclavicular node may be due to many different things, and whether it needs to be biopsied depends on whether "hard" means stony hard, whether it is fixed to underlying tissues, tender, continuing to enlarge, how long it has been there and many other things will influence decision-making. See your doctor and get this taken care of. ...Read more

Sudden enlargement of lymph node in neck, 1 inch.very painful. Low grade fevers are also present. Possibly serious or just fighting something minor?

May need antibiotics: If a lymph node in the neck suddenly increases in size to one inch, over a time period of 1-2 days, there may be an infection such as strep throat, or there may be a bacterial infection in the lymph node without strep throat. In either case, the doctor may want to prescribe antibiotics if his evaluation suggests a bacterial (meaning not viral) infection. ...Read more

Questrionble: Lymph nodes as you describe only appear in armpit but very high or deep in adjacent to the axillary vein. If this is an area above the armpit is it a lesion in the msucle region of the pectoralis which makes up the medial wall of the axilla. Here one can hve fibromas or lipaomas. Check with LMD to be sure this is an axillary node. If it persists or enlarges bx may be needed. ...Read more

Should be ok: Lymph nodes typically enlarge when they are fighting infection. The nodes in your neck may have gotten larger bc of some recent cold or sore throat. This shouldn't have any impact on you spending time with your sick grandpa. Unfortunately, if he has something contagious (cold or flu) you could still get it. If your lymph nodes get larger and stay that way (few weeks), you should see your doctor. ...Read more
