I've had a lymph node on the back of my neck for over a year now. It's about 1 CM. Hard but movable. Should I be worried about cancer?

No: Just check the node about once a month. If it does not grow bigger, you do not have other enlarged nodes, it would be okay to wait and watch.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex.

Does 1.4 cm lymph node found in neck ultrasound means enlarged lymph node?

Does 1.4 cm lymph node found in neck ultrasound means enlarged lymph node?

It's not THAT big: "Enlarged" is a matter of opinion. Any why do you ask? Unless you feel obviously sick, or a lymph node in your neck is rock-hard, fixed to surronding structures that it shouldn't be, or oversized enough for everybody to notice, it's your friend. It's helping you stay healthy. Leave it alone and stop worrying. I'm had a 1.5 cm submental node since med school. ...Read more

I did a neck ultrasound and on the report is show: "largest lymph node 1.4 cm", impression: "lymph nodes normal size". How can it be normal size?

The size: Of the lymph node is not the only factor in deciding whether a lymph node is abnormal. The shape of the lymph node, the vascularity, and the cortex thickness are all important in helping to determine whether it is abnormal. That said, a 1.4cm (long axis diameter) neck lymph node would be considered within normal range assuming the other features are also normal. ...Read more

.05 cm lymph node in lower right neck same side as recent sucked in eardrum painless to touch feels rubbery moveable first notic 1 week ago worried?

0.05 cm size?: A neck lymph node is not enlarged if it is 0.5 cm. A lymph node sized 0.05 cm is almost invisible. Any inflammation or infection in the head and neck area can enlarge some lymph nodes. One can keep track of new lumps and bumps by touching them but not squeezing them. Squeezing can cause more inflammation and make a lump or node bigger. A occasional visit to the doctor can be done, if worried. ...Read more

Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph everywhere for bad stuff like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more
