Ultrasound Lymph Node In Neck
It's not THAT big: "Enlarged" is a matter of opinion. Any why do you ask? Unless you feel obviously sick, or a lymph node in your neck is rock-hard, fixed to surronding structures that it shouldn't be, or oversized enough for everybody to notice, it's your friend. It's helping you stay healthy. Leave it alone and stop worrying. I'm had a 1.5 cm submental node since med school. ...Read more
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

BAsic info: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts.

Normal lymph nodes: Have a kidney bean appearance with fat in the central part of the node. This configuration usually persists when nodes are enlarged by a benign inflammatory response. Nodes involved with cancer cells often loose the central fat, enlarge asymmetrically, have an irregular outer surface, and show increased blood flow in the outer surface of the node. ...Read more
Occasional pain in front of neck near jugulodigastric lymph nodes. Comes and goes. Ultrasound says no pathological lymph node enlargement?Tmj?Thyroid?
No: However, if you tend to be over-anxious and you're a young adult, you'll start noticing the lymph nodes that everybody has in their necks. A dangerous node is obviously very abnormal clinically. You need to learn to ignore the ones that aren't fixed to surrounding structures, stony-hard / tire-rubber hard, and not deforming. Please talk with your physician about overcoming these kinds of fear ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes and No; depends.: Depending on body part being scanned, yes swollen lymph nodes can be detected. The deeper the location of the lymph node such as in abdomen or pelvis, the more likely a ct or MRI scan would be necessary to see these structures. U/s in the neck, groin, or extremities is much more able at finding enlarged lymph nodes than in deeper or thicker body parts. Ct is the preferred study of choice. ...Read more

Swollen lymph node between 1-1.5 CM in the left supraclavicular fossa, few shotty nodes in groin and armpit is it cancer? Been Ent. Norm X ray and cbc
Lymphadenopathy: The only absolute way to determine whether these are malignant is to excise and biopsy and examine under the microscope. This would usually not be done unless the nodes seemed hard, fixed to underlying tissues, etc. Not sure why you are so worried about this at your age, but having an exam by a PCP might be beneficial, and if you are still disturbed, perhaps a therapist. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
