Other possibilities.: The Thyroid is not the only endocrine gland that affects metabolism, mood, menstrual cycles and hair follicle activity in women your age. It's quite possible that you are experiencing peri-menopause, or that you have Vitamin D deficiency. Has the enlargement of the thyroid gland been confirmed/examined with ultrasound? If not it should be. Your other hormones and a D level should be checked also.

Swollen lymph nodes on neck - had them for about 3 months already. What is the fastest treatment for this?

Swollen lymph nodes on neck - had them for about 3 months already. What is the fastest treatment for this?

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad 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. 3 months requires evaluation.

Need urologist: The problem may be more complicated than a simple UTI if the right abx was used. You may need to consult an urologist. I am also concerned over your abdominal mass.

I have a hard swollen lymph on my neck below my ear. My biopsy result says 'reactive lymphadenitis'. Is it necessary to get medical treatment?

I have a hard swollen lymph on my neck below my ear. My biopsy result says 'reactive lymphadenitis'. Is it necessary to get medical treatment?

Yes: Reactive lymphadenitis means that your immune system was fighting something and the node was activated. Unfortunately it did not calm down or became clogged. Try warm compresses on it. If that doesn't work you may benefit from an antibiotic.

Swollen lymphnodes in neck for 3 months. WBC was normal and did not shrink after antibiotic treatment. Ct was normal. Should I get further testing?

Swollen lymphnodes in neck for 3 months. WBC was normal and did not shrink after antibiotic treatment. Ct was normal. Should I get further testing?

Yes: CT of WHAT was normal? If you can feel enlarged lymph nodes, those should be visible on CT scan. But CT does not distinguish between benign and malignant lymph nodes. A biopsy may be indicated. Yes, you should be re-evaluated. Your description is compatible with Hodgkin's disease, as well as with minor illnesses. I can't tell which you have. Neither can you. See a doctor.

Neck lymph nodes: They are typically small, less than 1.0 cm and not easy to feel. 1.5 cm is enlarged. Lymph nodes often react to acute or chronic inflammation in the area they drain. See an ENT for a good head and neck exam and further work--up, as necessary.

Lymph nodes: Hello SBaldwin. I am unable to check proper dosages of the meds not knowing her weight but I recommend continuing with the current treatment and labs. It looks like your doctor wants to cover any current bacterial infection and check for other causes to include viruses that linger for a while before resolving.

Aunt- stage 4 lung cancer, no treatment weak heart, swollen neck lymph, coughing up blood, oxygen, hospice, life expectancy?

Aunt- stage 4 lung cancer, no treatment weak heart, swollen neck lymph, coughing up blood, oxygen, hospice, life expectancy?

Preterminal: Unfortunately the patient appears to be preterminal with life expectancy predicted to be in days or weeks. Hospice care will ensure that pain and suffering will be avoided and will not prolong death. I assume that the patient and family understands and agrees with this plan of care.

Are your neck lymph nodes pose to be able for you to feel them? Anyway to make them go down if they're swollen. Home remedies?

No: Lymph nodes in the neck are not usually palpable unless there is an infectious process in the throat, tonsils or in an area that drain to these nodes. Others etiologies may be the cause for enlarged LNs and better checked with a physician.

Is itchy, sore throat (w/ coughs) normally accompanied by warm sensation around neck? Had sore throats bfore w/o warm sensation. Home remedies/treatment?

Itchy sore throat: Your complaint may be due to a post nasal drip, allergies or sinus problems. However, it is always best to get a throat culture to rule out a strep throat. Home remedies may be salt water rinses. Or saline nose drops depending on cause.

I have swollen, inflamed gums. Please help. Any good home remedy?

I have swollen, inflamed gums. Please help. Any good home remedy?

Red flag: Swelling is one of the signals your body uses to tell you that there's something wrong. By the time your gums are swollen enough to alarm you there is probably a significant gum disease problem that requires professional care, and you are probably beyond a diy cure. Please see your dentist for an examination and evaluation now. Referral to a periodontist may be indicated.

My left eyelid is swollen and puffy. Is there a home remedy for this?

My left eyelid is swollen and puffy. Is there a home remedy for this?

Allergies: Allergies cause swollen eyelids. Cold compress can relieve the swelling. Over-the-counter allergy medicine, such as loratidine (claritin) & eyedrops help relieve it. Zaditor (ketotifen) is a good eye drop for itching. If it persists or gets worse go to your doctor. Another cause could be a blocked sweat duct around the eye. In that case patients respond to warm compress. It could also be other problems.

Tonsilloliths: Tonsil stone is a sign of chronic inflammation of tonsils, salt water gargle could be helpful but the best way to approach it is to see an ENT doctor for possible removal of tonsils.
