Deep cervical lymph nodes enlarging every 1-2 weeks. I have sle and sjogrens. Is this due to just the a.I.S or possibly cancer? What tests can I do?

Deep cervical lymph nodes enlarging every 1-2 weeks. I have sle and sjogrens. Is this due to just the a.I.S or possibly cancer? What  tests can I do?

Could be either: Sle and sjögren's syndrome can both cause enlarged lymph nodes. These diseases also can increase the risk of lymphoma - a type of cancer which can also cause these lymph nodes to swell.

Possible for an enlarged deep cervical lymph node to grow over 6 months due to Mono? Or unlikely to cause enlarged (and slightly growing) that long?

I recommend you make an appointment as soon as possible. ...Read more

What causes cervical lymph nodes to be reactive?

Many things: Lymph nodes enlarge when they are doing their job properly, fighting inflammation. This could be a viral or bacterial or fungal infection, reaction to dental or gingival disease, or less often, malignancies. Chains of nodes drain from different areas and it might help to know whether this is behind or in front of the muscle running diagonally from the jay angle to the collarbone. ...Read more
