My 2.5 year old son has swollen lymph nodes in neck, clavicle, underarm and groin.  Only swollen on the left side, fever started 2 days ago.

Lymphadenopathy: At this age, we see fever with certain group of lymph node enlargement, like neck, under chin, behind ears and some other areas. Cause is mostly of viral. If multiple groups are involved with fever but no rash, i will advise to have a thorough exam by his pediatrician, check for liver /spleen enlargement, have simple blood test like a cbc. With diff. And any more if needed. Do not get scared. ...Read more

18 years old. Swollen lymph nodes that haven't grown in size. But I have a cough and difficulty swallowing followed with chest pains. Is this lymphoma?

18 years old. Swollen lymph nodes that haven't grown in size. But I have a cough and difficulty swallowing followed with chest pains. Is this lymphoma?

Correlated or not?: It is hard to know, especially without doing a physical exam and taking a complete medical history, whether or not the long standing enlarged lymph nodes (how big?) and your new symptoms are related. If you have not been to a physician, i would recommend going. It is reassuring the nodes have been stable for a year. Further testing, if warranted, can be done to figure out what is going on. ...Read more

My 3.5 year old son has had some swollen lymph nodes since april when he caught strep they are still enlarged ?

Doctor can re-check: Young children can have swollen lymph nodes for months, especially if they catch a cold or a strep throat every couple of months. It is important to see the same doctor, so that the same person is examining the child's neck. He can compare his exams from different visits, and can also swab the throat for strep at follow-up visits. There are few rare, bad diseases that also cause persistent nodes. ...Read more
