Malt Lymphoma Thyroid
Hyperthyroidism: There are no food that reverse hyperthyroidism or make it worse.
How likely it is for a bulging in my parpebral conjunctiva and under my tongue be MALT lymphoma? Noticed them recently, possibly there for a long time. Swollen node on neck too. Ultrasound in 2 weeks
Thymectomy done, biopsy showed extra nodal marginal zone lymphoma as diagnosis. Is it possible the resection cured me of malt lymphoma?
Yes: Hello- your doctor may do some testing to make sure it is not anywhere else but if it is a stage I malt lymphoma then resection is the only treatment required and cure is possible. Good luck!
Not typically: Gastric malt lymphoma is usually characterized by being localized to the stomach alone. The back of the tongue is a part of another lymphatic region known as waldeyer's ring and people can develop lymphoma there, but swollen tastebuds is not a common appearance for lymphoma. So they are not guaranteed to be related. If you have a gastric malt and are suspicious, see an ent.
Eyelid swelling: MALTOMA in the eye, like other sites arise from mucosa of that organ as the name is acronym for mucosa associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma. Hence swelling of eye mucosal conjuctiva on upper or lower lids or on adjacent sweat ducts are first sign and symptoms may include painLess Eye bulge redness, double vision, and usually without loss of vision.

I had a malt lymphoma treated with Bendamustine+rituximab. 6 months after the end of treatment 2 gastro revealed dysplasia and suggested gastroecotomy?
Can't say: This is far too complex a problem to expect an answer on a forum like this. Speak with the doctor (s) treating you. Good luck.
Hashimotos disease; is my gradual onset (5 weeks) neck pain and localized swelling caused by neck strain or cervical lymphoma 2* thyroid disease?
UnlikelyButGetChecke: Hashimoto Disease is an auto immune disease which affects thyroid gland.It can pain in any joint and muscles. It can increase your risk of getting a rare kind of thyroid cancer called Thyroid Lymphoma.That is a very rare occurrence in some. But it is not cervical Lymphoma. Since you have a concern about it and have a nodule in thyroid gland. Get it checked by your endocrinologist asap.See 1 more doctor answer
I had thyroid CT scan, everything was normal. Had labs today for upcoming app. & doctor ordered lymphoma blood test. Any reason why if scan was normal?
Unrelated diseases: Hi. The lymphoma blood test (flow cytometry, I assume) looks for a monoclonal white cell population. A CT of the thyroid (not a standard or ideal test for thyroid evaluation) looks for anatomical abnormalities of the thyroid. Thyroid anatomical abnormalities and lymphoma are distinct conditions with the very rare exception of thyroid lymphoma. Have you had a needle biopsy of your thyroid?
R- side neck pain, decreased appetite, weightloss, drenching night sweats, on/off thyroid swelling dry cough. Clean blood, x-ray, & u/s. Not lymphoma?
Many possibilities.: Lymphoma usually isn't painful, but the other symptoms could fit. However, there are a number of other possibilities. The thyroid swelling is suspicious for thyroiditis. If that is ruled out, ct scan of neck, chest, abdomen and pelvis may be helpful, or possibly a pet/ct. Various infections, and autoimmune diseases can cause similar symptoms to malignancies.See 1 more doctor answer
Many Causes: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad 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.See 1 more doctor answer
It depends...: The most common cause of cervical lymphadenopathy (enlarged lymph nodes in the neck area), especially at a young age, is infection/inflammation. The diagnosis of lymphoma relies on a constellation of clinical signs and symptoms including unexplained weight loss, fatigue, night sweats, lack of appetite, progressively growing lymph nodes, etc. If highly suspicious, a lymph node biopsy is necessary.See 1 more doctor answer

Lymph nodes was swollen in neck, now they have shrunk a little bit, so considering they have shrunk does this rule out cancers like lymphoma?
Healthy Immunity: Swollen lymph nodes are a sign of health, not a sign of disease. They are doing their job. They fight off infections all day long, even when you do not know you have been exposed to something. You do not have Lymphoma. You have a normal healthy immune system.
Something feels like 2 balls in my neck, I think its lymph nodes. But when I stick my tongue out its hard to feel them. I'm afraid its lymphoma?
MD: Statistically probably not. But you have to see your MD for an examination.See 1 more doctor answer
Are lymphoma lymph nodes moveable? I have a lump in my neck that is tiny but when I turn my neck it gets slightly bigger. It is also quite mobile.
Lymphoma: Nodes are usually quite large with variable mobility. A single cervical lymph node is quite common and not usually cause for alarm unless it enlarges or becomes hard. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!
