Is it possible for inflammation from an allergin lead to mestasis of cancer from one organ to another through the lymph node?

Is it possible for inflammation from an allergin lead to mestasis of cancer from one organ to another through the lymph node?

No: If it were possible, and I am not familiar with a allergen causing metastasis , it could only occur from the primary. Metastasis from metastasis don't occur. Tumor in a node can only spread to another node. What has spread to the liver can only grow within the liver. If within the term allergen you refer to inflammation, the Coley's toxin developed from a strep combo induced tumor regression. ...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?

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?

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

When i press my tonsils then yellowish exudate comes . no fever no inflammation of tonsils. It comes in crypts sometimes. Enlarge right jaw lymph node?

Please...: Do not press on your tonsils! There is no reason to do so, and if you had an infection you can spread it that way! Cryptic tonsils are not necessarily calling for treatment. You probably have an elnlarged right jaw lymph because to pressed on the area. Now I would recommend you see a Dr. You might need treatment. ...Read more
