Groin pain, fever: A swollen lymph node in the groin, with a low grade fever, followed by no fever and reduced swelling in the lymph node is typical of a viral outbreak like herpes. Get tested for antibodies for herpes I and II in a few weeks, as it may not be initially positive if this is a "first outbreak".

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells/digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph everywhere for bad stuff 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

Swollen inguinal lymph node, and it feels firm, though it is less than 2cm. It's been there for 3 days. Not sick. Should I be concerned?

Other symptoms?: A rash in that area can cause a swollen lymph node. Do you have any new bruising, fatigue, large lymph nodes anywhere else, fevers, night sweats or unintentional weight loss? If any of these, you need to see doc now. If really not sick (like you said), you could watch this. If it increases in size any more, I would have a doc look at it. Otherwise, lymph nodes can take 1-2 months to go away. ...Read more

When a lymph node is removed swells, had a drainage tube for 3 days. Sent home n swelling again. Do u think the drainage tube was not in long enough?

When a lymph node is removed swells, had a drainage tube for 3 days. Sent home n swelling again. Do u think the drainage tube was not in long enough?

Not sure: I am not sure why you had a drain at all, if it was a single lymph node.. I would suspect that you have either a hematoma or seroma. 3 days should be more than adequate time for a drain, we usually get our drains out within the first few days, unless the drain continues to have output of greater than 30 cc in 8 hours. ...Read more

I have a very swollen lymph node under my chin that presented two days ago. I'm not sick, and this happens once every few months. Should I be worried?

Lymphadenpathy: This node sounds like it is doing what it is supposed to do. Fighting inflammation. You may have a dental issue, a low grade inflammation in the area, trauma, and so on. Would not worry unless this becomes permanent, hard to the touch, and fixed to underlying tissue or it is becoming progressively larger. Good luck. ...Read more

Reactive lymph node: It is not unusual for a person to have occasional reactive lymph nodes that enlarge in response to infections and inflammation. Nodes in that area can react to throat or pulmonary (lung) problems. It could also be a deep cyst or other type of mass. Not to cause undue concern, but enlarged nodes always need to be evaluated for lymphoma. You definintely should get it checked. ...Read more
