I have enlarged lymph nodes in axilla, retroperitoneal and pelvic area in groin. 2 cm largest with suv 8 being the maximum.   ? Feelings

Possible lymphoma: The presence of lymph nodes that can be palpated in axilla would lead to evaluation of other sites as seen on CAT scan. This procedure must have been ordered to see if other nodal areas were involved as in retroperitoneum. Since there are many causes of multiple areas of enlarged nodes, dx must be determined by bx. Aspiration of no value since architecture of nodes required for proper dx. ...Read more

Is inguinal lymphadenopathy normal in pregnancy?

Is inguinal lymphadenopathy normal in pregnancy?

Don't assume: No, it is not normal and should be evaluated by your doctor. It can be a sign of infection in the vaginal area in some cases. It can also be the result of "varicosities" in the vulva - this is more normal. Go get examined by your ob/gyn and have them assess exactly what is going on! ...Read more

Over 2 years ago, left inguinal ultrasound showed nonspecific inflammatory lymphadenopathy (4), diamenters of 5mm and 7mm. Feel without change. Worry?

It's not always: size that matters when it comes to lymph nodes, but those are relatively small, and the fact that they have been stable for two years indicates that they are likely nothing to worry about. ...Read more

18 months ago, left inguinal ultrasound showed nonspecific inflammatory lymphadenopathy with diameters between 5mm and 7mm. Feel without change. Worry?

Monitor, don't worry: If the lymph nodes have not changed in 18 months, you have not had undesired weight loss, night sweats, fevers, or increase in size, the odds of a pathologic condition is very low. If you still cannot stop worrying, it can be biopsied, but why get a scar for such a low risk lesion. Only address if it changes ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with bilateral inguinal lymphadenopathy. But my inguinal lymph nodes do not hurt at all? Does this diagnosis sound right?

I have been diagnosed with bilateral inguinal lymphadenopathy. But my inguinal lymph nodes do not hurt at all? Does this diagnosis sound right?

Need work-up: Bilateral inguinal lymphadenopathies-mean-you have lymph nodes enlargement that are located on both groins area. Now, it is not a diagnosis-it is just a sign/clinical finding. Diagnosis still has to be made. There are different things that can cause above finding- inflammation, autoimmune problem, infection, malignancy etc. Please go to see your md for eval- ie-blood work, imaging, biopsy etc. ...Read more

Chronic generalised lymphadenopathy, inguinal nodes 2-3cm and fixed, can nodes be this size and fixed without cancer? Awaitin biopsy results ....

Wait and see: I'm certain that someone somewhere has had fixed nodes that were biopsied and found to be benign. The term fixed or mated nodes brings to mind conditions such as lymphoma. Best not to speculate but wait and see the pathology report. Best of luck. ...Read more

Diagnosed with inguinal lymphadenopathy last year, node was biopsied, no cancer detected, node returned to normal. What could it have been? Thank you!

Skin on your feet: Somewhere between 99% and 101% of young men who are physically active have at least a few palpable lymph nodes in their groin. Trusting you're std-free. The usual biopsy diagnosis is either nonspecific of dermatopathic lymphadenopathy -- an athlete's feet get roughed up in his shoes and socks, and products of injury drain to the protective groin nodes. ...Read more

Ct and/pelvis contrast for lymphadenopathy. multiple non enlarged retroperitoneal lymph nodes visualized. Do you always see these nodes on ct? Normal?

Ct and/pelvis contrast for lymphadenopathy. multiple non enlarged retroperitoneal lymph nodes visualized. Do you always see these nodes on ct? Normal?

These lymph nodes: may not mean anything, unless there is a readily diagnosed condition that will explain their existence, such as acute infection or tumor. Lymph nodes can pop in and out, without rhyme or reason. The existence of CHRONICALLY enlarging lymph nodes would be a red flag. Periodic followup CTs at intervals of 3 or 6 months would be recommended here. ...Read more

What could cause swollen lymph nodes in my groin?

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more

Usually nothing.: This is the place where enlarged lymph glands are most often found. If not tender or hard, and if they are under 1 cm in diameter there usually is no problem.

What can mean swollen lymph nodes in the groin area?

What can mean swollen lymph nodes in the groin area?

Several things: A few small nodes (less than 1 cm) are not uncommon in the groins. These are usually due to injury or infection and are usually harmless. However, if your groin nodes seem getting larger over times, you should check with your doctor since besides infection, many cancers can cause this. Some examples are lymphoma, melanoma, or testicular cancer (in men), or cervical cancer (in women). ...Read more
