Yes...: Often the first sign of cancer spreading is to the local lymphnode... When a woman having clinical breast exam, her underam is also examined to make sure no lymphnode etc...Once cancer is diagnosed or suspected, the lymphnodes are biopsied/resected to see if cancer is in there.

It is a description of findings but not really anything unusual. The lymph nodes are slightly enlarged in the front (anterior) and back(posterior) drainage pathways in the neck. ...Read more

After ovulation, the endometrium moves into the secretory phase during which an embryo can be received if pregnancy takes place; otherwise a normal menstrual phase (period) begins.

Septal bone deviation and left maxillary mucosal cyst, salt taste, collection of csf, can it be the results of the pituritary gland or diease in brain
Maybe: Typically, surgery is the most common cause of CSF leak and the cause of a salty taste in the mouth from pituitary disease. If there is no history of surgery, it is remotely possible that a pituitary tumor could grow large enough to cause a CSF leak but this would be the rare case. There is likely no relation of pituitary disease to septal deviation or mucosal cysts. ...Read more

Cause of large, pale lingual tonsils touching epiglottis with yellow sticky mucus? Have follicular non-hodgkin's lymphoma -what else can cause this?
Tonsils: I suspect you mean the "regular" tonsils which are also called the pharyngeal tonsils. The lingual tonsils are at the base of the tongue and you wouldn't be able to see these yourself. They are both part of the Waldeyer's ring in the oropharynx. Lymphoma & carcinoma can certainly affect this area. Chronic tonsillitis and Mono are other infectious causes of tonsillar enlargement ...Read more
What percentage of extensive calcified lymph nodes in pulmonary hila, combined with bright red blood in sputum are cancerous in nature?
Very low: Cancerous nodes very seldom calcify much. In my old home in Kansas City, many (maybe most) folks had some calcium flecks from old histoplasmosis. I'm very concerned though if you're coughing up blood. That's cancer until proved otherwise, and you're entitled to have calcified nodes from some other cause. Please get it properly worked up. Best wishes. ...Read more
What is neoplasms unspec.Nature bone soft tissue and skin. Why did the ENT dr. Take a biopsy of a nodule of the nostril of nose.
