Kidney stones since i was 10. Ct shows multiple stones greater in right with shotty retroperitoneal lymph nodes. Will stones cause lymph node problem?

LIkely unrelated: Shotty or mildly enlarged retroperitoneal lymph nodes noted on ct is a non-specific and not uncommon finding and usually of no clinical significance in an otherwise healthy person. Otherwise, causes include infection, inflammation, and malignancy. Unless you have had recent or recurrent episodes of painful stone passage with associated inflammation, i suspect the two findings are unrelated. ...Read more

Friend has a 4cm kidney tumor believed to be cancer. Also swollen lymph nodes. What are the odds the lymph nodes have cancer and how could be treated?

Friend has a 4cm kidney tumor believed to be cancer. Also swollen lymph nodes. What are the odds the lymph nodes have cancer and how could be treated?

Maybe: If the lymph nodes that are enlarged are near the kidney and were identified by ct scan, then it is likely that they are affected by cancer. If enlarged nodes are far away from the kidney, then it is less likely but still possible to be affected by cancer. Treatment for any cancer is dependent on histology (cell type), clinical stage, and other clinical factors-your friend needs an oncologist. ...Read more

What can cause acute inner elbow lymph node swelling golf ball size bilateral. Passed kidney stone 2 days prior.see dr 2morrow. Took flomax for stone

Lymph node swelling: This location of lymph node swelling typically associates with an inflammatory reaction at the elbow or below, in your forearm or hand. Did you have an IV in your arm or hand? Flomax could lead to an allergic reaction but I think you would see other evidences. Are nails and fingers irritated? Do you have a rash elsewhere? ...Read more

4 year old with swollen lymph nodes on belly for over 2 months and also cyst in kidney. No viral illness. Can it be cancer?

4 year old with swollen lymph nodes on belly for over 2 months and also cyst in kidney. No viral illness. Can it be cancer?

Chances are low: Are the lymph nodes inside- or down in the groin- both are found in virus infections. Did you find out about the cysts with a CT scan? Usually if there is any concern for cancer the doctors will tell you to get further testing One good thing is that if this is going on for 2 months and not causing weight loss or fever then it is less likely cancer- I would recommend talking with your doctor ...Read more
