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

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

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

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
