Are two lymph nodes each one of them is 1 CM in size, matted, movable a cause for concern?

Are two lymph nodes each one of them is 1 CM in size, matted, movable a cause for concern?

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells/digested food. 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

About 4 years ago I had mono but ever since I have had a two lymph nodes in my groin and its 1.4 CM long and. 6 wide do you think I should see a doc?

Are they changing?: You pose an excellent question. I share your concern. The most important question to ask right now is: "have these two lymph nodes changed in any way? "
if the answer is that these nodes are stable, non-tender, not red, and are gently movable; then, these are probably lymph nodes that have little to worry about. However, since you raise this question, have your doctor feel these next office visit. ...Read more

Someone sick (fever, night sweats) 8 months, and lymph nodes. 2 mon ago UT showed two 2.1 cm nodes left jugular, r 2.0, aspiration or full biopsy?

Ask your own doctor: There's no way for a distant forum doctor to know whether needle aspiration or open biopsy is preferred. The patient's own doctor knows best. Follow her or his advice, or ask for consultation by an expert (e.g. oncologist or maybe infectious diseases specialist) if that hasn't been done already. ...Read more

For over 2 yrs. I have had pain in the front of my neck as well as bi-lateral enlarged lymph nodes. Two 1.5 cm thyroid nodules just found. Thoughts?

For over 2 yrs. I have had pain in the front of my neck as well as bi-lateral enlarged lymph nodes. Two 1.5 cm thyroid nodules just found. Thoughts?

Thyroid issues: Thyroid conditions such as thyroiditis and nodules can exist and cause symptoms for years. The thyroid nodules need to be biopsied and if the lymph nodes are enlarged enough, they may also need to be biopsied for a more specific diagnosis. Certainly, thyroid lab tests also need to be done if not done already. Good luck ...Read more

I have two small swollen lymph nodes on right side of neck under the jaw. They feel somewhat connected but small. Is this normal? Can sorta move each

Lymph nodes: Swollen lymph nodes are common and usually will swell secondary to some type of infection or allergy. I expect your problem should be short lived. However some lymph nodes will swell and remain palpable. This is usually not a concern. However, if they become big or spongy that can be a sine of lymphoma. Get checked! ...Read more

Soft movable lymph nodes in neck less than 1 cm No other symptoms If they don't change in size or the number is that mean they are safe Thank you :)?

Very possibly...: But I think you should get an expert opinion. I would advise you have your physician examine them and confirm your assessment that these lymph nodes are benign. Then you can agree together on whether it is safe for you to self-monitor them, or if she/he wants you to return for a recheck just to make sure all remains stable/benign. Good wishes:) ...Read more

It is perfectly normal for children to have multiple lymph nodes up to 1.5-2 cm diameter from ages 1 to 21, usually in the neck on either side along a chain of lymph glands stretching from behind the ear all the way down to the clavicles. They are caused by the repeated (but normal) colds, sore throats, and other viral infections that children get. No need to worry. ...Read more
