Enlarged Lymph Nodes In Groin Recurrent Ovarian Cancer
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
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
My dr told me that ovarian cancer is chronic and will probably keep coming back. Mine was stage 3c, and was surgically removed except for the lymph nodes. Cancer is now back in one lymph node after just five months post chemo. Is this true?
Possible: It is disturbing when ovarian cancer returns so quickly after chemotherapy. The possibility of a cure and no further treatment is small. There are effective treatments but they are designed to control the disease. You might want to discuss the game plan in more detail with your oncologist i'm sorry to hear about your problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Finished chemo for stage iiia ovarian cancer in oct 2013. Ca125 was 8 6wks ago and 20 now have large right groin node. Is the ca125 jump a lot? Can incisional hernia cause lymph node to swell?
Seek medical exam: Your oncologist needs to know about this groin node if you have not yet told him.Since your ca 125 is still in the normal range, i would not draw any conclusions but your doctor needs to examine you and guide you. It is best not to follow your disease with ca125 right now as it will likely have such fluctuatiosns, causing you to be nervous and anxious, yet it does not help in making treatment decis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If ovarian cancer suspect and ovary & lymph removed. Is biopsy done during surgery and how long til results? Will lymph biopsy results be done first?
Frozen section,,,: What is done during surgery for this or other operations for malignancy is usually a frozen section, not a biopsy. This is taken so the doctors know if there is tumor or if they got all the tumor if there is one. The results are reported at that time but it is preliminary. The official result comes after surgical dissection and examination and takes 2-3 days. Then the dr. Tells the pt. ...Read more

Usually not.: Although a pelvic or abdominal tumor can lead to an increase in pelvic veins seen on the skin, there are more frequent causes such as malfunctioning (refluxing) valves in the saphenous system or even in the ovarian veins (pelvic congestion syndrome).A ct of the abdomen and pelvis as well as a leg venous ultrasound will help to make the diagnosis. See a vein specialist. ...Read more

Please answer, if one had ovarian cancer, could it metastasis to pelvis and present on pap as cin 1?
Pap and ovarian CA: First just remember a Pap test is only good for finding cervical CA. It doesn't find ovarian or uterine CA. That's why ovarian CA is called the silent CA and uterine CA presents with bleeding. Your abnormal pap is not even at a level where it would be CA yet. Talk to your doctor and ask if the CA cells from the ovarian CA look like the pap. Sounds like u have a new problem. Hang in there! ...Read more

Can you get enlarged lymph nodes in your neck because of cancer somewhere else? Or can it be because I have pressed my neck a lot?
See below: Pressing the neck will not cause the lymph nodes to enlarge. It is very unlikely that cancer somewhere else is causing neck nodes to enlarge. To find out more would require additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Maybe: This would depend on how advanced the tumor is. If it is a small minimally invasive tumor it is unlikely that enlarged lymph nodes have tumor deposits within them. Most of the time lymph nodes are enlarged because they are simply reacting to an infection or other process and not because one has cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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?
Probably not: I think it's just your healthy immune system working to fight off infections. The fact that they are freely movable is reassuring. Cancer (lit, 'the crab') tends to send out tentacles that tie tissues down. Also the fact they're not growing is reassuring. Relax, and enjoy your life (safely, of course). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If enlarged lymph nodes in neck are because of cancer somewhere else would it have to be in an area close to the neck?
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.) This is because the lymphatic channels in the neck will filter through neck nodes before draining into a larger vessel in the chest. In contrast, lymphoma is a tumor of lymph nodes themselves, and can enlargement of any node. ...Read more
Had enlarged lymph nodes, left base of neck. PET + for cancer. Nodes now shrunken. Can no longer feel them. Could white cells have eliminated cancer?
Not likely: White cells don't eliminate cancer despite all the "pop" claims. Spontaneous regressions of cancer from immunity are rare and it almost always recurs afterwards. A PET scan cannot diagnose cancer without a biopsy, and is at most a means of finding lesions that need to be biopsied for possible cancer. Adults have neck nodes pop up and regress all the time. Be glad and talk with your physician. ...Read more
A CT scan revealed enlarged lymph nodes. Is it smart to wait 3-6 months for another scan to determine if it's cancer?
See a surgeon: Ct scans are fantastic tests but they identify a lot of "things" outside of what we may be looking for. You cannot isolate one finding-an enlarged lymph node-and get good advice about what to do. We need to ask a lot of questions, do a thorough examination+/-blood tests & review the ct scan before making a formal recommendation. Unfortunately, no short-cuts allowed in this situation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
