Jugulodigastric Lymph Nodes
I have jugulodigastric lymph node 3.5cm x 0.6cm multiple doctors say it's ok, normal. Refuse to biopsy. Why?
Mine's almost as big: These are common. Ask any physician who does a good, complete physical exam. If the mass is clearly a lymph node and not a submandibular gland tumor, and is not hard or stuck to a nearby structure, it would be a terrible idea to biopsy it. The chances of it being tumor are very low, it's not going to be resection-for-cure, and that area is full of important stuff. Been offered a fine needle? ...Read more

A Good clinical exam: ....Exam will help. This node can be easily palpated by any experienced doctor. Unless the physical exam shows presence of an enlarged node in this area, I am inclined to disregard the Ultrasound(report),which can often give false abnormalities. I would rely on doctors hands first and foremost. The imaging test of choice would be CT scan of the neck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

One of my jugulogastric lymph nodes was measured 3cm long by ultrasound but report says this is within normal size limits for this node?Should i worry
Depends a lot: on factors such as enlargement, consistency, associated diseases, and general medical condition. If it is an isolated finding and associated with viral infection such as zoster, it should resolve with time. If it is enlarging and feels hard, your doctor will probably recommend biopsy. In general, enlarged lymph nodes are most likely caused by infection or inflammation, but lymphoma is possible. ...Read more
Lymph node in neck doc said was jugulodigastric node that i thought was swollen, oval, soft, kinda flaps, about 1cm big.. Ent says im fine, but am i?
Close follow : Lymph nodes enlarge in reaction to infection or inflammation most commonly. Enlarged lymph nodes are generally > 1.5 cm, so yours is on the small side.

Nothing to worry about but you should be the-examined in 2-3 months ...Read more
