Localized Lymphadenopathy Groin
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

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.

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

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If that is not the case, or if there are other symptoms like fever, night sweats or weight loss, they might need to be biopsied. ...Read more
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.
