See a doctor: 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! ...Read more

My left arm has been sore and since yesterday. today I noticed that there was HUGE swollen spot of lymph nodes on the thumb side just below the elbow.

Lymph Nodes: That is not a typical place to find swollen lymph nodes and that isolated finding is not an obvious description of any common medical condition or infection. Without further information I cannot help with diagnosis but if it is huge swollen and worsening I would have a doctor look at it today. ...Read more

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

Most important thing is to rule out any new complications like recurrence of your lymphoma or appearance of a new cancer for which you are at some risk. Regular follow up with your oncologist is a must, so he/she can figure ou ...Read more

I have a huge spot of swollen lymph nodes on my left arm just below the elbow on the thin side of hand. This has hurt and been achy since yesterday.

Should be seen by MD: Achy, painful swelling in forearm most likely from bite, bruise, or infection. Suspect insect bite or sting, cat scratch, or injury. Other rare possibilities. Worry if red, shiny top, soft center, fever, chill, or streak. Would have a health care professional examine it in next 24 hours. OK to take acetaminophen. Probably not serious, but best to be careful. ...Read more

Vein my be inflamed: 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! ...Read more

Lymphoma?: Your symptoms are suggestive of lymphoma. Post-operative abscess could cause the sweats, but not likely the lymph node enlargement. Also abscess would very likely elevate the white blood cell count. Consult a physician. ...Read more
