Three swollen cervical lymph nodes all on left side of neck some ear pain doctor HS seen one of them says wait 2 month fbc normal should I be worried?

Lymph nodes: The lymph nodes usually enlarge as response to an infection in the vicinity.It lasts maximum 2-3 weeks and as the infection goes away (with antibiotics usually) the lymph nodes disappear. Outside this scenario, i would be worried and demand further investigation (ct is appropriate, a blood smear and CBC with differential, as well as a bmp with enzymes markers analysis) up to an excision biopy. ...Read more

Deep cervical lymph nodes enlarging every 1-2 weeks. I have sle and sjogrens. Is this due to just the a.I.S or possibly cancer? What tests can I do?

Deep cervical lymph nodes enlarging every 1-2 weeks. I have sle and sjogrens. Is this due to just the a.I.S or possibly cancer? What  tests can I do?

Could be either: Sle and sjögren's syndrome can both cause enlarged lymph nodes. These diseases also can increase the risk of lymphoma - a type of cancer which can also cause these lymph nodes to swell. It is also possible that your swollen lymph nodes are due to sinus problems, an infection, or something unrelated to your autoimmune disease. You should see your doctor to determine the best course for you. ...Read more

Are there lymph nodes in the lower back area? Are they near the surface that if they get enlarged can be felt like for example cervical lymph nodes?

Yes: There are chains of lymph nodes in the back of the neck on both sides, called posterior chain nodes. There are also anterior chain nodes. Nodes which can be felt may be associated with infection, irritation or sometimes oncologic reasons. Regardless, nodes should be brought to your physician's attention to be documented and measured. A followup visit is what I usually do in two weeks. ...Read more

What causes cervical lymph nodes to be reactive?

Many things: Lymph nodes enlarge when they are doing their job properly, fighting inflammation. This could be a viral or bacterial or fungal infection, reaction to dental or gingival disease, or less often, malignancies. Chains of nodes drain from different areas and it might help to know whether this is behind or in front of the muscle running diagonally from the jay angle to the collarbone. ...Read more

Im 23 yo male.had pericoronitis last week and now have cold.i accidently found that my right side cervical lymph node is swollen.should i worry?

Infection: You dont need to worry, but you should see your dentist again to get antibiotics if there is an infection. I assume you learned about the pericoronitis from your dentist? In that case either the area should be cleaned, the wisdom tooth removed, or excess tissue removed to prevent it from happening again. ...Read more

I have had enlarged supraclavicular and posterior cervical lymph nodes for 3 years. Since I've had them so long do you think they aren't serious?

I have had enlarged supraclavicular and posterior cervical lymph nodes for 3 years. Since I've had them so long do you think they aren't serious?

It is worrisome: Lymph nodes swell when there is something wrong. It can be something as simple as a sinus infection or as serious as cancer, HIV/AIDS, or syphilis. The only way to decide if is is "serious" is to determine what is causing it. Three years of supraclavicular lymphadenopathy would make me worry about the possibility of lymphoma (a type of blood cancer). See your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
