EBV early antigen Ab, IgG <9; EBV Eb, VcA, IgG >600; EBV nuclear antigen Ab IgG 108. Diagnossed with CAEBV infection. Does this sound right to you?
Maybe.: The profile is of a past infection. I am not sure if it can be diagnosed just by symptoms and evidence of past infection. I think you would need the second criteria of diagnosis which is DNA of EBV in peripheral tissue or blood detectable through PCR test with a low anti-EA. Have other diagnoses like Lyme's been tested for? ID specialist. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3245398/ ...Read more

Had mono a year ago, lymph nodes never shrunk. Got checked today ultrassound, largest one 2cm. Recurrent low grade fever. Mono back or Lymphoma?
Might need a biopsy: Chronic mononucleosis can be debilitating, so my thoughts are with you. However, enlarged lymph nodes can represent many different things, not just chronic mono. If your doctor believes that your blood work suggests something OTHER than chronic mono, then you might want to have a lymph node biopsied to be sure that there isn't something more serious lurking, such as lymphoma. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Could be: If a cancer is found and you've consented to let the surgeon do what's needed once inside, a hemicolectomy when the clinical diagnosis suggests a cancer was found in the appendix or nearby, but there are other possibilities. If it is your colon, then your surgeon has a duty to explain. If it is someone else's, i'm not going to second-guess. ...Read more

11year old son diagnosed with mesenteric adenitis.(4 time in 2 years)ultrasound shows 6.2cm appendix.Pain, vomitting, diarhhea, stool pelts.Appendectomy?
Unlikely appy: Appendicitis is something that usually comes, stays, and becomes a big problem. It does not usually come and go. It's also usually does not cause significant stool changes except maybe diarrhea at the time it is inflamed. It sounds like it would be very beneficial to see a G.I. Specialist as there is a few problems things it could be. Ibs, crohn's and ulcerative colitis are all possible. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My husband had colon cancer, had a colon resection and chemo. He has had 2 pet scans since. Churining?
A PET scan is: The most expensive imaging test. Using it to routine follow up can be justified if it alters care. Usually there is a defined course (# of cycles) and re-staging is done regularly with ct scans. Many insurers engage "pre-approval" screening to prevent over use. There are second and third line treatments for recurrent colon cancer, but ct scans do a good job of picking this up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Enlarged neck lymph node. CAT scan biopsy negative for tumors and cancer. Had mono a year ago. Lymph node still extremely enlarged dr. Says inflamed?
See clinic doc: Persistent enlarged lymph node after a year of mononucleosis is unusual though some rare individuals may have these reactions to the virus Epstein Barr. To know if the lymph node is related to the above, it is best to be examined by a clinic doc or specialist to review adequacy of biopsy or imaging. There are tests on biopsied tissue to tell if Its infection,other non neoplastic or something else ...Read more

Mom had CT chest after having bronchitis showed Mild mediastinal & left hilar lymphadenopathy,they did biopsy it was neg, no symptoms,why biopsy again?

Epstein barr VCA ab (igm) < or = 0.90 epstein virus VCA ab (igg) 3.51
epstein virus (ebna) ab (igg) >5.
Makes perfect sense: Igm antibodies rise only during the actual, acute infection. They then fade away and are replaced by the various igg antibodies, which are the ones that provide lifetime protection against the same strain of the virus. So your numbers are consistent with the fact you had mono years ago. There is no igm, and positive igg levels. So you are immune and do not currently have mono. ...Read more
