I have enlarged lymph nodes in axilla, retroperitoneal and pelvic area in groin. 2 cm largest with suv 8 being the maximum. ? Feelings

I have enlarged lymph nodes in axilla, retroperitoneal and pelvic area in groin. 2 cm largest with suv 8 being the maximum.   ? Feelings

Possible lymphoma: The presence of lymph nodes that can be palpated in axilla would lead to evaluation of other sites as seen on CAT scan. This procedure must have been ordered to see if other nodal areas were involved as in retroperitoneum. Since there are many causes of multiple areas of enlarged nodes, dx must be determined by bx. Aspiration of no value since architecture of nodes required for proper dx. ...Read more

I'm 20 years, have enlarged lymph nodes in my groin (one is >1 cm), & it has been there for 4 months. I have pain in hip area, but all blood test are normal. How likely is it to be Lymphoma?

Always possible: Persistent nodes in groin that have not increased in number or size while probably inflammatory can always represent low grade lymphoma. If nodes are firm and there are some symptoms of nerve pain in hip area biopsy might be indicated. ...Read more

Enlarged lymph nodes in groin and sore lower back every so often. Is this genital herpes symptoms?

Enlarged lymph nodes in groin and sore lower back every so often. Is this genital herpes symptoms?

Probably not herpes: Recrurrent genital herpes doesn't cause enlarged lymph nodes. This happens from herpes only once, during the intitial infection, and in that case there would be painful blisters or sores. And herpes doesn't cause lower back pain. You'll need to look elsewhere for the cause of these symptoms. Good luck! ...Read more

I have a thyroid cyst, 10 enlarged lymph nodes in neck & 8 in groin, lung scarring, high k, low na, lower wbc, hypotension & a long list of symptoms?

Internist: You're not going to get a diagnosis in an on-line forum. You obviously have a complicated problem that will require a comprehensive evaluation. If your local doctor can't help, seek help at an academic center with a general internist. You're only 113 miles from des moines. Ps, hi k and low na with low BP suggests addison's disease. ...Read more

I have experienced enlarged lymph nodes (big one left groin) after exercising a lot and i'm doing the dukan diet. Could this have something to do?

I have experienced enlarged lymph nodes (big one left  groin) after exercising a lot and i'm doing the dukan diet. Could this have something to do?

No: A diet will not cause enlarged lymph node. In groin there are several palpable lymph nodes. Significant size increase needs evaluation. In this area is also where hernias occur. Stop exercising until you have doctor evaluate. ...Read more

I've used topical/oral antifungals(azoles) with no complete resolution of burning sensation in my groins, enlarged lymph nodes and skin rash. ?

Groin rash: Having enlarged lymph nodes suggests the problem wasn't a yeast or fungal infection to begin with. And there are plenty of other causes for rash like this. At this point you should stop attempts at self-treatment and see a doctor. Good luck! ...Read more

Ct and/pelvis contrast for lymphadenopathy. multiple non enlarged retroperitoneal lymph nodes visualized. Do you always see these nodes on ct? Normal?

Ct and/pelvis contrast for lymphadenopathy. multiple non enlarged retroperitoneal lymph nodes visualized. Do you always see these nodes on ct? Normal?

These lymph nodes: may not mean anything, unless there is a readily diagnosed condition that will explain their existence, such as acute infection or tumor. Lymph nodes can pop in and out, without rhyme or reason. The existence of CHRONICALLY enlarging lymph nodes would be a red flag. Periodic followup CTs at intervals of 3 or 6 months would be recommended here. ...Read more

Unsure: Ct is not the best way to image the female pelvis. This could be normal for you or there may be something abnormal. I would recommend a pelvic ultrasound and physical exam to make sure everything is okay. ...Read more

Abd/pelvis CT today. Why is my Dr not concerned about mild splenomegaly, or several mildly enlarged lymph nodes. Had test for fever unknown origin.

Abd/pelvis CT today. Why is my Dr not concerned about mild splenomegaly, or several mildly enlarged lymph nodes. Had test for fever unknown origin.

Nodes not signif.: One has to know why the scan was done. Were there nodes in external chains that needed clarification. When nodes continue to enlarge in face of mild splenomegaly then superficial node that is most enlarged should be biopsied. Low grade chronic lymphoma can persist in a vegetative state for a long period and firm if not very enlarged might still be an indication for bx. ...Read more

Went 2 ER 4 inflamed testicle pain groin, and swollen lymph nodes in my leg i had an ultrasound they said i had epididymitis now my penis is inflamed ?

Reevaluation: You should be on antibiotics. If you are and you are getting worse so that the infection has spread to your penis, then you need to be evaluated. Inflammation of the skin is termed cellulitis, and should be controlled as soon as possible. Go back to the er first since they will be able to document any changes and contact an appropriate specialist. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with bilateral inguinal lymphadenopathy. But my inguinal lymph nodes do not hurt at all? Does this diagnosis sound right?

Need work-up: Bilateral inguinal lymphadenopathies-mean-you have lymph nodes enlargement that are located on both groins area. Now, it is not a diagnosis-it is just a sign/clinical finding.

There are different things that can cause above finding- inflammation, autoimmune problem, infection, malignancy etc. Please go to see your md for eval- ie-blood work, imaging, biopsy etc. ...Read more

Can a pinched nerve cause swollen lymph nodes in the groin?

Not likely: The definition of 'pinched nerve' is unclear here. The inguinal region is a common place for lymph node enlargement because the nodes drain a particularly 'dirty' area of the body. Nodes enlarge when they are fighting inflammation or tumors. If this persists or gets worse see a doctor. ...Read more
