Not sure of question: It sounds like your doctor found a "mass" in your neck above your collar bone and recommended an MRI. This confirmed the presence of lymph nodes in the same area, some of which were slightly large, at the upper ("top normal") limit of normal. These could be reactive... responding to some inflammation/infection nearby or neoplastic (tumor). Depending on other symptoms, observation or biopsy is next ...Read more

Is it possible to feel pain in the lymph glands without inflammation?

Monitoring Centers: The lymphatic system absorbs and carries things too big to go into the arteries and veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. A lymph node "tastes" the lymph to see if anything bad is there like bacteria, viruses, cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and enlarges in response when they react. Pain may be present. ...Read more

Can you please tell me the best possible way to soothe a sore throat and reduce lymph gland inflammation?

That depends: For significant sore throat with swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see physician & get a strep throat test/ culture. If you have strep throat, antibiotic therapy is imperative to prevent future complications. Consider tylenol (acetaminophen) or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications. Saltwater gargles: mix 1 tsp salt in 8 oz warm water – gargle several times a day. Or gargle with aloe vera juice twice a day. ...Read more

Excised lymph node mis. pos. markers: cd45=100, cd38=73, FMC7=7. DR only said inflammation. Can these results guide as to what kind of inflammation?

Excised lymph node mis. pos. markers: cd45=100, cd38=73, FMC7=7. DR only said inflammation. Can these results guide as to what kind of inflammation?

No: These results cannot guide as to what caused the inflammation. The most common cause would be from a past or current viral infection leaving you with a reactive lymph node. Other causes could be a past or current bacterial or fungal infection, from autoimmune disease, and from drugs or medication. It sounds like your doc is saying that it isn't from cancer and other misc diseases like sarcoidosis. ...Read more

Sonogram shows 2.2cm, (2) 1cm in neck lymph's. CT contrast scan doesn't identify lymph's. I'm told its inflammation. CT does not pick up inflammation?

Sonogram shows 2.2cm, (2) 1cm in neck lymph's. CT contrast scan doesn't identify lymph's. I'm told its inflammation. CT does not pick up inflammation?

CT can: identify soft tissue inflammation, and can identify lymph nodes. Hard to speculate as to why the CT scan didn't show the lymph nodes, but I suspect if they looked normal the radiologist decided not to mention them. The only way to be certain is to have the radiologist look at the CT and ultrasound side by side and reconcile the discrepancy. ...Read more
