Have swollen inguinal lymphatic for a month now. Just found to have strep throat. Could be cause of groin lymph node swelling?

Likely not: Unless you have a strep infection invading your blood pressure, it would not lead to groin node swelling. On the other hand, your problem may actually be a viral one which may cause node enlargement at any part of your body. If the lymph nodes enlargement fail to improve after 2 weeks, see your family doctor.

Reading conflicting info online - can genital herpes (HSV-2) of the groin cause lymph node swelling in the neck along with the groin?

Reading conflicting info online - can genital herpes (HSV-2) of the groin cause lymph node swelling in the neck along with the groin?

That's news to me: Since essentially all young adults have a few swollen lymph nodes in the neck, and it's healthy (they're your friends), it would be impossible to investigate this (frankly silly-sounding) claim. If the nodes in your neck flare when your genital herpes lesions do, maybe there's a connection. No big deal. Otherwise, stop worrying and get on with your life and be thankful for good health.

Ans: The lymph nodes can become inflamed for many reSons. You may have had an infection and thus the lymph nodes become reactive. They do eventually resolve takes a while. Now considering the nodes are enlarged only on one side and you are so young best to see a doctor and get examined

Lymph node swelling: Lymph nodes are where the immune cells of the body process all the stimuli from various infectious and other foreign stimuli in our environment. In children these are very active areas as so many things are "new" to them. It is natural for these to swell and then subside. Only persistent enlargement is a cause for concern due to infection that isn't cleared, or neoplasia.

Is there anything that can cause lymph node swelling throughout the body?

Is there anything that can cause lymph node swelling throughout the body?

Monitoring Centers: The lymphatic system absorbs and carries things too big to go into the arteries and veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. The lymph nodes "taste" the lymph to see if anything bad is there 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.

Irritants/ bites: Solo enlarged nodes are usually reflective of a local process. Irritation of the scalp, a local bug bite, etc. Nodes usually run a 3-4 week cycle of enlrging when stimulated, processing their irritant and returning to resting size. If continuing to enlarge, painful or persisting in an enlarged size after 3-4 wks, I would have it looked at.

What can cause lymph node swelling on left side of neck and jaw line? No other symptoms other than some mild weakness. Is this concerning?

Many possible causes: There are many possible causes for a lump at that location, so I would recommend a thorough evaluation by your physician. Possible causes include swollen lymph nodes, benign skin cysts, salivary gland swelling, congenital cysts, or rare tumors. Factors such as location, size, and duration make some of these more or less likely. Lymph node swelling is very common in response to local infection.

Can abcessed tooth cause pain in ear and axillary lymph node swelling?

Abcessed tooth: An upper tooth that is abcessed can cause pain that seems like it is in the ear. Axillary lymph nodes are in the chest and arm pit, and would not be swollen due to an abcessed tooth. You need to see a dentist for the abcessed tooth. If you have swollen axillary lymph nodes, you need to see your medical doctor asap.

What can cause acute inner elbow lymph node swelling golf ball size bilateral. Passed kidney stone 2 days prior. See dr 2morrow. Took flomax (tamsulosin) for stone

Lymph node swelling: This location of lymph node swelling typically associates with an inflammatory reaction at the elbow or below, in your forearm or hand. Did you have an IV in your arm or hand? Flomax (tamsulosin) could lead to an allergic reaction but I think you would see other evidences. Are nails and fingers irritated? Do you have a rash elsewhere?
