Could hormonal changes in a woman cause a swollen lymph node in left side of chest  (above breast, below collar bone) for 2 days now? No fever yet.

NO: This should not be related to a hormonal problem. Usually when a lymph node (if that is what it is) enlarges as a response to infection or inflammation of which there can be many causes. It may not be a lymph node. It could be a cyst or an early abcess. If it persists, it needs to be checked by a doctor. ...Read more

Lymph glands: Generalized enlargement of lymph nodes are seen in infectious mononucleosis, malignant blood dyscrasias and other infections. I'm not sure that they would be found on the rib cage itself or on the shin bone. I recommend an evaluation by a hematologist or an infectious disease specialist. A lymph node biopsy as well as other tests may be advised by the specialist. ...Read more

Lymph nodes swollen for 8 months. Thought it was over a yr, but further backtracking shows sooner. I now have chest pains, itchiness, fatigue. Biopsy?

Hold on: Don't plan your biopsy yet. Lots of things can cause enlarged lymph glands and they're not all bad. Sometimes they are enlarged in the neck but not big enough that it's a worry. I recommend you stop trying to figure it out online and go see a doctor for further evaluation. It may not be as bad as you suspect, but you do need to find out. ...Read more

Itchy red, alligator like feeling, swollen rash on cheeks, neck & chest. Swollen eyelids. Dr. Said allergic reaction, steroid medication is not helpin?

Up the treatment: I see in your medication list that you are taking Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) an h1 antihistamine, and were prescribed a steroid cream. You can try an over the counter h2 antihistamine Loratadine along with the above. You may need to be switched from the steroid cream to steroids by mouth, so a followup with your doctor would be the next step. If you have lip/mouth symptoms, go to Emergency Dept. ...Read more

Is having a prominent vein in the breast, itchy & swollen sometimes a bad thing?

Is having a prominent vein in the breast, itchy & swollen sometimes a bad thing?

Sometimes: Normally we would not expect the veins in the breast to hurt or be swollen. However, a swollen painful vein could be nothing more than enlargement during the menstrual cycle which doesn't apply to you if you have had a hysterectomy. It could also be due to irritation of the veins in that area or even to a clot forming in the veins in the breast but this also is not common. F/u with your gyn md/. ...Read more
