Inferior Deep Cervical Lymph Nodes Swollen
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. They shrink when all is well. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

Yes: Everyone has cervical lymph nodes, which are normally the size and shape of small beans, less than 1 centimeter, smaller than a dime.

Doctor said he wasn't worried about swollen painless cervical lymph nodes because they were hard to detect. No signs of infection, should I be worried?
No, trust your MD: We all have lymph nodes and if your MD is not worried you likely dont need to be. If you feel that you have continued concerns make an appointment with your MD and address those concerns. Otherwise, you need to see someone and provide a much more detailed history than space will allow here. We need to know alot about a patient to make a diagnosis. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Swollen cervical lymph nodes for 5 month now havnt shrunk or grew normal CBC doctors not worried does it mean cancer?
Not likely: Lymph nodes in the neck enlarge for lots of reasons. Often it's infection, sometimes immunizations. If they're small (< 1/2") they may just be scarred from a previous infection. Cancer may grow slowly , but typically if they were cancerous nodes they would have clearly enlarged over 5 months with no treatment. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

Swollen occipital & cervical lymph nodes. Painless but there for months. Wbc is just below normal. Pcp says don't worry. Should i see a specialist?
Yes: If they are 1 cm or larger then that warrants investigation. CBC doesn't always mirror a lymphoma, hiv, or other causes of multiply enlarged nodes. I am concerned because you have enlarged nodes in diverse locations especially if they continue to increase in number or size. If they don't decline with antibiotics then get one remover for analysis. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
