No: However, if you tend to be over-anxious and you're a young adult, you'll start noticing the lymph nodes that everybody has in their necks. A dangerous node is obviously very abnormal clinically.

Does a chest x Ray reveal enlarged lymph nodes in neck area such as under the thymus gland caused by lymphoma?

Does a chest x Ray reveal enlarged lymph nodes in neck area such as under the thymus gland caused by lymphoma?

The thymus gland: is not in the neck, it is in the chest(anterior mediastinum). If the lymph nodes get large enough, the chest xray will be abnormal. However, a chest xray is not a reliable way to rule out adenopathy, because the lymph nodes have to get quite bulky to show up. CT is a much more sensitive and specific test for mediastinal adenopathy. ...Read more

Is it normal to feel lymph nodes in a 2 yr ok'd healthy girl bk of neck rt side by ear. Dr felt and said it was normal gland second opinion neccesary?

Ct results say numerous small subclinical lymph nodes in right and left neck. Submandibular and parities glands symmetrical in side to side. Meaning?

Ct results say numerous small subclinical lymph nodes in right and left neck. Submandibular and parities glands symmetrical in side to side. Meaning?

Most likely benign: We all have lymph nodes - they are the factories that build the cells and compounds that fight off infections. They can be seen on all ct scans, even in normal patients. When they enlarge, it can be due to infection or something else, like a tumor or lymphoma. Sometimes, even normal sized ones are abnormally functioning on a pet/ct. Symmetry is good, and small is good, almost always. ...Read more

Then you can agree together on whether it is safe for you to self-monitor them, or if she/he wants you to return for a recheck just to make sure all remains stable/benign. Good wishes:) ...Read more
