CBC bloodwork done 10 days ago. Came back normal. Found an enlarged node in neck, immobile, a little tender. Lymphoma or leukemia, or just infection?

the protocol is if the lymph node does not go away alone or with a course of antibiotic for two weeks it might need to be biopsy.

Had 3 hard lumps possibly lymph nodes on back of hand (tender), below my nose (tender) and on the side of my neck (not tender) for 1 wk. Is it lymphoma?
Very small painless bump back base of skull (near occipital node). Neck is a bit sore/stiff. No other symptoms. No fatigue or night sweats. Lymphoma?
From what you described, lymphoma is unlikely. You may watch and wait. You may feel the node every couple of weeks, if the lymph gland doubles in size, becomes painful, ulcerates, or other nodes become enlarged, or you develop fever, or lose weight, you should see a doctor.

Infectious problem?: Mono is from the EBV virus, and can cause swollen glands (lymph nodes) and big tonsils. Strep throat can do the same thing, but Strep throat needs antibiotics. Some other infections can cause big lymph nodes. Rarely, blood disorders and blood cancers cause swollen lymph nodes and fatigue (person often gets anemic). This all means that another trip to the doctor would be wise. ...Read more
