Yes and no...: Neck lymph nodes may become enlarged with tumors of the head and neck, such as squamous cell carcinoma of the throat. (Smokers are prone to this problem.)

Enlarged lymph nodes throughout neck. & a few under arms. All soft. All moveable. All 1.25 CM or less. Been there for three years. No growing. Cancer?

CT is a much more sensitive and specific test for mediastinal adenopathy. ...Read more
