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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Hi there, I am a 17 year old male and just recently I have noticed my lymph node in my groin. It is on the left side and about the size of a pea, it is soft too. It is not visually noticeable but I can feel it. Is this normal? I have no other symptoms to

Yes, normal: At least half of all healthy persons have at least one groin lump like this. It's probably a scarred lymph node from some distant past infection. Do not repeatedly examine your own groin. That will just cause such lumps to appear from the pressure etc. Don't worry about it. ...Read more

Swollen painless inguinal lymph nodes and 2 under each ear lobe-stationary for 2 months. Cbc-normal. No symptoms. Chewing tobacco for a week. Cancer?

Swollen Lumph Nodes: Although oral cancer is assocaited with chewing tobacco, one week of use will not result in cancer. The wide separation between the nodes in the neck and the nodes in the groin suggest something else may be pgoing on, ranging from a simple post-viral adenoparhy to something more sinister. If they nodes don't clear on their own, I suggest she consult her doctor for a thorough evaluation. ...Read more
