Enlarged Lymph Nodes In Neck On One Side
My son is coughing and has enlarged lymph nodes. Two small ones on each side of his neck (for over 8 weeks) and a new one the size of a cherry pit.
Neck MRI showed "several top-normal diam lymph nodes scattered about the left jugulo-digastric chain, most notable at left Level II" as well as lymphadenopathy. This is where my doc felt the supraclavicular "mass", as he called it. Also, I have been havi
