See a doctor: Hi. Hard, enlarged cutaneous lymph nodes in the abdomen should be evaluated and perhaps biopsied. Are there any associated changes in your health? Bowel habit changes, nausea/vomiting, night sweats, weight loss, etc? See your doctor. Good luck!

Multiple mesenteric lymph nodes enlarged, does it mean kochs abdomen?

Multiple mesenteric lymph nodes enlarged, does it mean kochs abdomen?

May or may not be!: Unless we know the size of the enlarged nodes, it is difficult to know what these nodes mean. You need to go see a specialist who can do further checking especially if you have any abdominal symptoms like pain, poor appetite, weight loss or fever. If you are well, you can wait and repeat the imaging study that showed these nodes in the first instance. A 2-3 month interval might show if they change.

What causes painful lower abdomen lymph nodes on a young child and how can it be treated?

Monitoring Centers: 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.

Is it normal to have enlarged lymph nodes in the abdomen? In a 12 year old? Was told that this something often seen in young girls?

Enlarged lymph nodes: In the abdomen, was that on an imaging study or by physical exam? At any rate it is common to have some enlarged lymph nodes in a region where there is an infection or inflammation, that how the lymph system functions till infection/inflammation is cleared. Whether it is often seen in young girls, is somehow a vague statement!

Had c.t scan done for abdomen. Flank pain and says prominent but not enlarged para aortic retro operational lymph nodes are identified?

Had c.t scan done for abdomen. Flank pain and says prominent but not enlarged para aortic retro operational lymph nodes are identified?

Complicated: Your doctor should follow up on this scan with you. I can't tell you definitively what those lymph nodes mean -- i'd need to know why you got the scan in the first place, what your flank plain was all about, what your other symptoms are and what your blood tests show. Please see your doctor soon to discuss this.

Top onco says 5-FU for 6 months is best protocol for 87 yr man. W/adenocarcinoma of stomach. Had partial gastrectomy & 9\26 positive lymph nodes. True?

Top onco says 5-FU for 6 months is best protocol for 87 yr man. W/adenocarcinoma of stomach. Had partial gastrectomy & 9\26 positive lymph nodes. True?

Dubious: Unaware data supporting benefit of sole 5fu (fluorouracil) adjuvant therapy of n3 gastric adenocarcinoma after complete resection (negative margins). If a "young" 87 yo deemed able to tolerate aggressive treatment-then give standard rx (see nccn guidelines-but note 87 yo were not studied). While your onco well intentioned, consider second opinion and quality of life. Survival possible without chemo.

It is a: Non specific description of the lymph nodes. There are numerous conditions that could cause mildly enlarged lymph nodes. It also may be that they are normal for you. A more precise description of the lymph nodes, e.g. the size and number of them, might be more useful. In any case, it is likely that they are of no concern, but speak to your doc about it.

Need to know if a dr orders a cats can for lymph nodes before s bronscopy is it cancer.

Need to know if a dr orders a cats can for lymph nodes before s bronscopy is it cancer.

Sounds like he's: Looking for evidence, but the only proof is a biopsy. Ct-scans reveal lumps, in lungs or the mediastinum, wher the heart, swallowing tube and lymph nodes live. Size and architecture point to or against cancer. Pet/ct follows a biopsy. They must know that there is cancer first, then look for the legitimate treatments.

Is it possible that herpes could cause a big painless node (s) in the groin or are herpes lymph nodes always going to be tender/painful? 3 day aftersex

Is it possible that herpes could cause a big painless node (s) in the groin or are herpes lymph nodes always going to be tender/painful? 3 day aftersex

Thoughts: Typically if you first get infected with herpes, small sores, scabs and itching occur first and then the virus lays dormant for years. That presentation sounds more like an infected follicle which you could use bacitracin for. See your doctor or someone with an infectious disease background and be examined. You can check a blood test to rule out exposure if really concerned.
