Cancerous Tumor on lymph node in Chest Grew from 25/35 to 26/37 over last 2months. Would this be Considered a Fairly Fast Growing Tumor?
Why do you ask?: "Fairly fast growing tumor" is not a term used in medicine. Cancers are unpredictable and deadly.

Left Supclavical lymph node is swollen. 25 y/o female. 50lbs weightloss. Last NOV found reactive enlarged subhilar lymph node in my chest. Nightsweats?
Enlarged Lymph nodes:
Weight loss and swollen mediastianal-supraclavicular lymph nodes will require a biopsy.
Enlarged lymph nodes inside the chest are usually suspected and diagnosed when tests such as a chest-ray or a CT scan are carried out during an illness such as fever for which no obvious cause is found (pyrexia of unknown origin). The patient may also have symptoms such as cough, diminished appetite or weight loss. In addition, the doctor may order certain blood tests to find out the cause of the enlarged lymph nodes.
If along with enalarged lymph nodes in the chest there are lymph nodes in easily accessible areas such as the neck, under the armpits or groin doctors often get a needle sample from these (called fine needle aspiration cytology or FNAC) and send it to a pathologist.
For diagnosis of certain diseases, Lung, Ca, TB, aspergilosis,
lymphoma, the pathologist requires a large piece of the lymph node (biopsy). The biopsy may be carried out under local or general anaesthesia depending on the site of the enlarged nodes and patient and surgeon preference. In patients who only have enlarged lymph nodes in the chest but no nodes elsewhere that can be easily biopsied, the situation is slightly different. It may be possible to biopsy lymph nodes at some locations inside the chest under the guidance of a CT scan. The doctor pass a fine needle to the area of the enlarged lymph nodes under local anaesthesia as the area is being monitored on a CT scanner.
What are the advantages of a thoracoscopic lymph node biopsy?
• Ability to obtain adequate sample from lymph nodes under the magnified view
• Ability to remove even a single, small lymph node identified on the CT scan which may be difficult to biopsy under CT-guidance
• Less pain from the incisions after surgery
• Shorter hospital stay
• Shorter recovery time
• Faster return to work or normal activity
• Better cosmetic healing ...Read more

Question? Diagnosis?: Not sure of your question, but I surmise you want a diagnosis (you want to know what this IS). Without symptoms & physical exam (pictures), it is impossible to know. Even knowing symptoms & appearance, sometimes the ultrasound is not definitive enough to give a diagnosis. See a surgeon for a biopsy; this may be a lipoma (benign fatty growth) or a lymphoma (benign or malignant, both types exist). ...Read more
