Enlarged lymph node in neck vs an enlarged carotid artery? Once ultrasound differentiates, then what? 3cm 2+mo fatigue normal chest X-ray and CBC

The

artery will pulsate as the heart beats. So the work up should include biopsy of the lymph node to see if correlation with fatigue. Good luck!

Hard,untender,swollen lymph nodes(3 on right neck+4 on left,1 by each underarm).No fever,no night sweats.Lymphocytes normal,Chest X-ray results=Normal?

Enlarged LNs

Neck
How long you have been noticing the enlarged LNs? Do you have enlarged spleen or liver? most common cause for enlarged LNs is reaction to inflammation that drains to the LNs (In oral cavity in case of the enlarged neck LNs). I would recommend to watch the LNs since you experience no symptoms and initial workup is normal.

What doeslinear opecity in chest x ray indicates?

Depends

Chest
Could refer to an old fibrotic scar, a localized area of partial lung non-aeration (Discoid atelectasis), thickened septum between the lobes of the lung, and others. Can't really say more without seeing the film. It almost always is an incidental finding.

Scar vs. Atelectasis

Chest
"Bibasilar linear opacity" is a term used by radiologists to describe thin lines seen in the bases of both lungs. The typical cause for this are benign conditions such as atelectasis or scarring after a previous infection (pneumonia) . Comparison with previous chest x-rays to determine chronicity and/or cause may be necessary.

If you have cough and colds are they detected in chest x-ray?

Maybe

Cough
The chest x-ray is performed to determine if your symptoms may be due to pneumonia, heart failure, of fluid accumulating in the space around the lung (pleural space). A patient with common cold will usually have a normal chest x-ray. A cough can be a symptom associated with the above mentioned problems.
