LN or something else: LN x 3 months is nt a usual finding. This could be something else such as remnant of an abscess, sebaceous cyst or lipoma which are less likely, etc. Likely benign but have it looked at, perhaps w a POC US + CBC at lease. Bx may or may not be indicated depending on features.

Hi, I am a male 25, I have slightly swollen lymph node in the right side of my neck for the past 2 years. Is there any cause for concern?

Lymph node.: By your description and by the amount of time that this node has been there, it’s probably fine. Although technically speaking, the only way to know with certainty would be to remove it and send it to a laboratory for pathologic analysis.

Wondering about a cyst that appeared on the kidney which I know can be common in males (its very small), but an enlarged lymph node in same area.

Wondering about a cyst that appeared on the kidney which I know can be common in males (its very small), but an enlarged lymph node in same area.

Needs followup: Yes, the cyst is very common. The enlarged node should not occur from a benign cyst on the kidney. Most commonly that would be from infection, inflammation or cancer. Followup scan is appropriate to make sure it goes away after a few weeks

If u can feel lymph node just above arm pit & its less than 1 CM diameter is it still dangerous/lymphoma? I feel 2 there, slightly movable. 25 male

Probably not: Lymph nodes that remain less than 1 cm are usually of no concern for malignancy. If they grow beyond 1cm and persist beyond a few weeks, you should have them checked by a health care professional.

Questrionble: Lymph nodes as you describe only appear in armpit but very high or deep in adjacent to the axillary vein. If this is an area above the armpit is it a lesion in the msucle region of the pectoralis which makes up the medial wall of the axilla. Here one can hve fibromas or lipaomas. Check with LMD to be sure this is an axillary node. If it persists or enlarges bx may be needed.

Unlikely: You should examine the node every couple of weeks and see a doctor if any of the following happens: It more than doubles in size, additional nodes become enlarged, node becomes painful, it ulcerates through the skin, you have unintended weight loss, you have fever. 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. 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.

How does a swollen lymph node look around your groin? On black males?

How does a swollen lymph node look around your groin? On black males?

Small lump: Skin is unlikely to be discolored. You may or may not actually see a small lump. Much more likely to recognize a groin lyph node by feel rather than by actually just seeing a small lump.

Hi, I'm a 22 year old male, I noticed a small lymph node on the crease in my right groin, its movable and smaller than a pea, what could it be?

A lymph node: Small soft lymph nodes in the groin could be normal. Causes of enlarged lymph nodes in that area could be infections in the legs or feet, sexually transmitted diseases, or lymphoma. You should see a doctor and get it checked.

Probably not: But it never hurts to have things assessed by a professional. See your family doctor and let them make the decision about whether or not further testing is warranted. Good luck and best wishes.

Yes, normal: At least half of all healthy persons have at least one groin lump like this. It's probably a scarred lymph node from some distant past infection. Do not repeated examine your own groin. That will just cause such lumps to appear from the pressure etc. Don't worry about it.

Ingrown hair?: Are you sure it is a lymph node? An ingrown hair causing an abscess can cause a lump in an armpit. If it truly is a lymph node, then the nodes in the armpit drain the arm and the breast and superficial chest. Any infection or disease in those areas can cause a swollen node. If it doesn't continue to improve, you should see a doctor.

Enlarged node: Could be several things. Most likely reactive process due to infection. If the node persists after a round of antibiotics I would suggest an fna be performed. In this procedure a tiny needle is introduced and a small sample of cells is collected and sent to a pathologist for review.

25 y old male. Feel node behind ear, 1 centimetre diameter, movable. How big does lymph node have to be before its serious? No other symptoms, Lymphoma?

Lymph node: Marilyn, lymph nodes which are freely movable and less than 1 cm are usually considered not to be pathological. However, if this is a new finding to you, lymph node removal by an ENT surgeon and examined by pathologist is needed to be sure. Dr Hilliard
