Thyroid cancer: Thyroid cancer normally presents with a mass that is biopsied to show cancer. Advanced cancer can affect the recurrent laryngeal nerve to change your voice quality (mass effect) or lymph node involvement. Lymph node enlargement is more commonly related to a cold or infection. See your doctor for more details.

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?

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.

Slightly enlarged right clavicle lymph node. What are other causes besides cancer. Everything I read says its bad for that area. No other symptoms?

Often normal: I see big nodes here all the time, in both healthy athletes and people who've died of unrelated disease or injury. If a node is big from cancer, the person can usually tell something is badly wrong. Best wishes.

Drs found a left para aortic lymph node enlarged to 3cm. ....All other test came back ok no symptoms....No cancer... Is it ok to leave it alone?

Evaluation: First question is why was initial scan that found lymph node performed? A complete evaluation is critical. Isolated para-aortic and ap window nodes (levels 6 & 5) can be benign inflammatory, from lung cancer, from other cancer, or etc... Complete health maintenance including history, physical and appropriate risk associated screening critical : mammography, +/- colonoscopy, head neck eval, etc...

Stage 111 non small cell lung cancer. Had lobectomy, cancer in lymph node an chest wall. What are the symptoms when you get closer to death.?

Stage 111 non small cell lung cancer. Had lobectomy, cancer in lymph node an chest wall. What are the symptoms when you get closer to death.?

Wait to Worry: You should not be thinking about death unless your Cancer is growing or spreading (called Metastasis). Most people with growing cancer develop symptoms which will signal that you need to see your doctor for examination. A periodic check up by your doctor can reveal signs of tumor recurrence if there is one. So as long as you get checked periodically or when you have new symptoms, you are doing fine

I am 21 and felt a right supra clavicle lymph node. With no other symptoms does this suggest lung cancer?

No: Lots of healthy guys and ladies have tissue there. It's your friend. Leave it alone. Everybody has some palpable lymph nodes, in sifferent places for different people. Malignant nodes are obviously abnormal. Be glad for good health.

A CT of my chest showed an enlarged lymph node in the carina area. It measured 1.8 cm. What is the likelihood this could be a symptom of lung cancer?

A CT of my chest showed an enlarged lymph node in the carina area. It measured 1.8 cm. What is the likelihood this could be a symptom of lung cancer?

Unlikely: Even though you do have copd. This is one of those questions that is academic. If it is cancer, it will not be curable because it has spread. If you feel generally well, it is probably not cancer. There's no point in pursuing it. Go about your life.

Brief sex 4 days ago. Today saw one painless large olive sized lymph node on left groin. No other symptoms or sores noticed. Is this herpes? Or what?

Not herpes: Almost certainly not herpes. There is no STD or other infection likely to cause lymph node enlargement in 4 days, especially without other symptoms like sores or irritation. The new lump in your groin -- whether really a lymph node or something else -- probably has nothing to do with the sexual event 4 days earlier. See a doctor if it persists, if any other symptoms, or you remain concerned.
