Abdominal Lymph Node Locations
Normal chest X-ray & abdominal/pelivic CT scan, but positive TB skin test? I have low grade fevers, extreme fatigue & swollen lymph nodes. Tb?
Get it checked: Small swollen lymph nodes and GI symptoms could be related to virus such as cold, flu, or gastroenteritis (although this does not usually cause swollen lymph nodes). If a lymph node feels hard, fixed in place, and does not go away within a week, it should be checked by a doctor to make sure it is not something more serious. ...Read more
I have a small firm lump in middle abdomen between sternum and umbilicus. Could this be a lymph node? Or are nodes too deep in the body to palpate?
I have an enlarged lymph node under my arm where I got the flu shot. I also have an enlarged lymph node in my abdomen. Can these two be related?
If I am thin can I feel an enlarged iliac lymph node? I feel a lump in abdomen in between belly button and hip bone. I do not feel it on other side.
No: even if you are thin iliac nodes are not palpable. Too deep. Inguinal nodes can be easily palpated- that's in the groin. Also, there other causes for bumps in the belly. Depends which side and location. You could feel enlarged ovarian cyst if you are really skinny. Can feel your own colon on left side - especially if full of poop, and so on. ...Read more

Pet scan had slight activity in abdominal lymph node & tiny spot on liver. Could this be left over inflammation from diep surgery in december? Tm 52.
ANA 1:640 nucleolar (lab range 1:160 borderline, 1:320 positive). No symptoms, all tests ok (capillaroscopy, blood, chest x-ray, abdominal & lymph node ultrasound) Family history (Mother MCTD, her cousin SLE). Drs say my ANA's familial. I fear cancer?
Observation: The positive ANA suggests that you are at a higher risk in developing an autoimmune disorder but is not diagnostic of any disease by itself. Thus you need to inform your doctor of this finding should you develop joint, thyroid, skin, intestinal , etc symptoms. Your risk for cancer is not higher because of the elevated ANA. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not poppable: 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. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more
