I have enlarged lymph nodes in axilla, retroperitoneal and pelvic area in groin. 2 cm largest with suv 8 being the maximum.? Feelings

Possible lymphoma: The presence of lymph nodes that can be palpated in axilla would lead to evaluation of other sites as seen on CAT scan. This procedure must have been ordered to see if other nodal areas were involved as in retroperitoneum. Since there are many causes of multiple areas of enlarged nodes, dx must be determined by bx. Aspiration of no value since architecture of nodes required for proper dx. ...Read more

Monitoring Centers: The lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries and veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food.

They enlarge/hard in response to the inflammation created when they react. ...Read more

I have had swollen glands in my neck and pelvic area since March and I’m not sure if it’s a cause for concern. The lymph nodes aren't very big.

I have had swollen glands in my neck and pelvic area since March and I’m not sure if it’s a cause for concern. The lymph nodes aren't very big.

Watch and wait: If you do not have any symptoms you may watch and wait. You may feel the nodes every couple of weeks, if any of the lymph glands doubles in size, becomes painful, ulcerates, or other nodes become enlarged, or you develop fever, or lose weight, you should see a doctor.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine ...Read more

How many lymph nodes are in the pelvic region? That question is still not answered by these responses. Thank you.

Varies per person: Females tend to have higher numbers of pelvic lymph nodes than males. Anatomical studies related to cancer spread have found that most people have at least 25-50 lymph nodes in their pelvic region but it depends in part on the nature of their disease. Inflammatory and infectious diseases tend to increase the number of lymph nodes in a region. Hope this helps ...Read more

The question?: If you want to find out what the findings mean, you will need to contact the doctor who ordered the CT. At the least we need to know more about your medical history, your symptoms, and what prompted the CT to be ordered. Practically no diagnosis can be made solely from an image study or a lab test, otherwise you won't need doctors. ...Read more

Hello I had a cat scan done on pelvic and abdoan done today the are looking at lymph nodes what does lyphoma orlung cancer look like on cat scan?

A mass.: Lymph nodes are scattered throughout the body and are normal structures. They should not be larger than 1 cm in diameter. Lymph nodes that contain metastatic disease, or lymph nodes containing lymphoma, are detected on a cat scan based on size over 1 cm. A pet/ct has an additional criterion, increased glucose uptake, to suggest cancer. ...Read more

Ct and/pelvis contrast for lymphadenopathy. Multiple non enlarged retroperitoneal lymph nodes visualized. Do you always see these nodes on ct? Normal?

These lymph nodes: May not mean anything, unless there is a readily diagnosed condition that will explain their existence, such as acute infection or tumor. Lymph nodes can pop in and out, without rhyme or reason. The existence of CHRONICALLY enlarging lymph nodes would be a red flag. Periodic followup CTs at intervals of 3 or 6 months would be recommended here. ...Read more

Abd/pelvis CT today. Why is my Dr not concerned about mild splenomegaly, or several mildly enlarged lymph nodes. Had test for fever unknown origin.

Nodes not signif.: One has to know why the scan was done. Were there nodes in external chains that needed clarification. When nodes continue to enlarge in face of mild splenomegaly then superficial node that is most enlarged should be biopsied. Low grade chronic lymphoma can persist in a vegetative state for a long period and firm if not very enlarged might still be an indication for bx. ...Read more
