It's helping you stay healthy. Leave it alone and stop worrying. I'm had a 1.5 cm submental node since med school. ...Read more

All over the body: Lymph nodes, sometimes incorrectly called "glands" & are a vital part of immune system. They filter out foreign particles including bacteria and malignant cells. Can limit spread of infections. Can become enlarged with infection or cancer cells. Which is useful for "staging" tumors. However, enlargement, especially in children, is benign more often than not. Always consult your dr. When in doubt. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Submental ?: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food.

They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more

No: However, if you tend to be over-anxious and you're a young adult, you'll start noticing the lymph nodes that everybody has in their necks. A dangerous node is obviously very abnormal clinically. You need to learn to ignore the ones that aren't fixed to surrounding structures, stony-hard / tire-rubber hard, and not deforming. Please talk with your physician about overcoming these kinds of fear ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Incidental finding on CT of enlarged mesenteric lymph nodes only one at 1cm. Does it make sense to wait 90 days to repeat CT. ?
Yes: A size of 1cm is not significantly enlarged; lymph nodes act as filters so tend to enlarge when they filter things from the blood, such as bacteria causing infection. It is reasonable to repeat imaging in 6 weeks to see if the lymph nodes are enlarging or getting smaller. If they are decreasing in size there is no reason for concern ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
