Are there lymph nodes near your elbow?

Monitoring Centers

Virus
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

cbc normal but lymph nodes swelling in neck and one behind neck also had one last year on elbow and nothing came of it. ?

See a doctor

Viral_infection
Hmm. Lymph nodes can swell when your immune system is fighting an infection. They are usually tender when that occurs. A viral infection like "mono" can cause the lymph nodes in the back of your neck to swell. Certain cancers can also cause lymph node swelling. This would not show up on a CBC. A doctor needs to feel your nodes and decide if further tests are needed!

I would definitely see a doctor to find out if they think these lymph nodes are increasing in size or could be infected.

Dr. Andrew Turrisi answered:

Dr. says hard lump mid. of arm above elbow to the right feels like swollen lymph node. Doesn't think cancer, wants sonogram. Wht else could it be?

If you have had a

Blood-draw
blood draw or IV injection, a sclerosed vein. The U/S can tell characteristics of the lump, solid, cystic or fluid filled. Need to check other nodes. List meds..drug reaction. Only biopsy can discern what is in a node.

I just had blood drawn 4 days ago.(enzymes ok) Now my right interior elbow is sore & swollen. Lymph nodes or blood clot?

Vein my be inflamed

Blood
If the blood draw was close to the side where you are having the soreness and swelling this may be an inflammatory reaction and/or clot secondary to the puncture. I would try a warm compress and some ibuprofen and see your doctor. Good luck!

41y,F, i have swollen lymph node towards front of my neck for 6 month and now recently swollen on my inner elbow for a week and a half. Help please. ?

Need an examination

Enlarged_lymph_nodes
You need a doctor to examine you and confirm if you have enlarged lymph nodes and try to find the cause. it can be due to some infections. Sometimes it is cancer of the lymph glands called Lymphoma. Only your doctor can help you..so go and see him/her. if you do not have a doctor you need to find one soon.
