Soft, easy to move lymph nodes, especially in the posterior neck, behind the sternocleidomastoid muscle, are fairly common. If you had it checked out, and it's not growing, it's probably nothing to worry about. ...Read more
Hard lymph node in neck for 3yrs, dull ache. Told possible scarring. How's that possible? High MCV & high RDW means distress to marrow?
This node is nothing: Any lymph node that has been there for 3 years and has not changed or evolved is not likely to be anything of concern.

Unless you send me the CBC report, we are limited in giving you any useful advice. Your bone marrow is not likely in Distre ...Read more

I have an enlarged cervical lymph node that measures 1.75x2.0 in. It is also hard and somewhat painful should I get it checked out or wait.?
Lymph Node Swelling: Greetings. An enlarged lymph node should be evaluated and treated. In my practice, I would treat you with an antibiotic. After 14 days, the node should have shrunk in size.

They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more
