Locations Of Lymph Nodes In Women
"foreigner": Lymph nodes are processing centers for the immune system that are designed to trap anything that is "foreign" in our bodies such as bacteria, viruses, or cancer cells. Therefore, we search for any of these possibilities, which may include tests such as a mammogram, ultrasound, and/or mri. Ultimately, if our concern is high, a nonsurgical lymph node biopsy may be performed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Left Supclavical lymph node is swollen. 25 y/o female. 50lbs weightloss. last NOV found reactive enlarged subhilar lymph node in my chest. Nightsweats?
Enlarged Lymph nodes: Weight loss and swollen mediastianal-supraclavicular lymph nodes will require a biopsy. Enlarged lymph nodes inside the chest are usually suspected and diagnosed when tests such as a chest-ray or a CT scan are carried out during an illness such as fever for which no obvious cause is found (pyrexia of unknown origin). The patient may also have symptoms such as cough, diminished appetite or weight loss. In addition, the doctor may order certain blood tests to find out the cause of the enlarged lymph nodes. If along with enalarged lymph nodes in the chest there are lymph nodes in easily accessible areas such as the neck, under the armpits or groin doctors often get a needle sample from these (called fine needle aspiration cytology or FNAC) and send it to a pathologist. For diagnosis of certain diseases, Lung, Ca, TB, aspergilosis, lymphoma, the pathologist requires a large piece of the lymph node (biopsy). The biopsy may be carried out under local or general anaesthesia depending on the site of the enlarged nodes and patient and surgeon preference. In patients who only have enlarged lymph nodes in the chest but no nodes elsewhere that can be easily biopsied, the situation is slightly different. It may be possible to biopsy lymph nodes at some locations inside the chest under the guidance of a CT scan. The doctor pass a fine needle to the area of the enlarged lymph nodes under local anaesthesia as the area is being monitored on a CT scanner. What are the advantages of a thoracoscopic lymph node biopsy? • Ability to obtain adequate sample from lymph nodes under the magnified view • Ability to remove even a single, small lymph node identified on the CT scan which may be difficult to biopsy under CT-guidance • Less pain from the incisions after surgery • Shorter hospital stay • Shorter recovery time • Faster return to work or normal activity • Better cosmetic healing ...Read more

Consider getting it checked now, so your doctor can check for the cause. When the cause is found and treated the lymph node goes down over the next several weeks. If it stays enlarged, other tests may need to be done ...Read more
My lymph node under my chin is really swollen. Can stress do this. I am 5 foot 7 145 age 40 female. I think iam healthy no colds etc
Not stress induced: It may be something else besides a lymph node, like a cyst or other epidermal lesion. Assuming it is a lymph node, it is reacting to something. Lymph nodes make antibodies to fight foreign invaders, typically bacteria. Lymph nodes under the chin drain the floor of the mouth and teeth. Most commonly, a dental problem of the lower teeth could cause this problem. Look under your tongue ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. I can't diagnose your condition. However, a lymph node can become enlarged for more reasons that a sore throat or cough. An infection of a gum, a canker sore - these are just a couple of examples. Lymph nodes drain areas of inflammation or infection.
