An u/s showed "reactive size (3mm) nodes" (bilateral cervical in 7 y/o child). what could be the cause to be "reactive, " if enlarged for 4+ years?

Nothing specific: In children 3-7 years of age cervical lymph gland enlargement is so common that it is almost considered normal. Abnormality wld be suggested by the glands getting larger & larger & accompanied by pain, redness, fever & throat involvement. Reactive enlargement is a reaction to the exposure to viruses and bacteria that occurs in all children and 3 mm size is not significant. If worried see ur doc ...Read more

Spasms: These symptoms seem like muscle spasms and fibromyalgia or fibromyositis. Physical therapy, proper easy exercise. Best remedy is PT with TENS stimulation and even acupuncture. Local ice packs alternating with gentle heat will help. See an expert in fibromyalgia. ...Read more

Multiple reactive sub-centimetric bilateral cervical, axillary & inguinal nodes with no significant FDG uptake therein, is this normal?

Multiple reactive sub-centimetric bilateral cervical, axillary & inguinal nodes with no significant FDG uptake therein, is this normal?

Likely so:: Generalized lymphadenopathy with reactive nodes < 1 cm is not an entirely unusual finding on CT. If you have no symptoms, and all other tests have been negative to date, it's
less likely that you have any ongoing process such as malignancy, infection, autoimmune or systemic disorder like Sarcoidosis. Whatever caused your glands to be prominent was likely inconsequential and resolved. ...Read more

My X-ray of the cervical spine showed "bilateral prominent transverse processes of c7" what does that mean and should I be worried about it? Thank you

Arm symptoms?: Enlargement of the C7 transverse process can be associated with thoracic outlet syndrome and is a more subtle finding similar to the presence of a true cervical rib. Classic tos symptoms involve the lower trunk of the brachial plexus with numbness and pain extending into the 4th and 5th digits of the hand and hand weakness. ...Read more

Can lymph nodes stay swollen for 7 months after mono infection. Lymph nodes are bilateral in post. Cervical area 1.3 cm or less. I touch them everyday?

Can lymph nodes stay swollen for 7 months after mono infection. Lymph nodes are bilateral in post. Cervical area 1.3 cm or less. I touch them everyday?

Yes, not abnormal: Once inflamed and enlarged, sometimes lymph nodes never return to previous normal size. If you're otherwise well, it doesn't mean anything if you can still feel them. Anyway, repeated touching -- especially if you poke hard to find them, rub them, etc -- can cause further inflammation, keeping them large. I suggest you vow to keep your hands off for the next month. You may then find they're gone. ...Read more

I have bilateral swollen cervical lymph nodes found on my cervical MRI, does this mean I may have cancer somewhere?

I have bilateral swollen cervical lymph nodes found on my cervical MRI, does this mean I may have cancer somewhere?

Possible but...: Probably not. There are many causes of enlarged lymph nodes. Usually when they are incidentally discovered they are benign inflammatory/reactive lymph nodes, but yes, lymphoma or metastatic disease can cause enlarged lymph nodes as well. Follow up with your doctor. ...Read more

My Chest X-ray "there are very small bilateral either C7 cervical rib or mildly prominent transverse processes at C7." What does this mean?

My Chest X-ray "there are very small bilateral either C7 cervical rib or mildly prominent transverse processes at C7." What does this mean?

Usually coincidental: But if you have compression over the brachial plexus in the shoulder, causing neurogenic or vascular thoracic outlet syndrome, leading to arm pain, numbness, weakness, then a question of mechanical effect is relevant. Sometimes, surgical excision is the best solution for such an impact. ...Read more

2012 Guyon's decompres. On R wrist.6 yrs pain. Cervical straight neck. Bilateral ulnar pain @wrist & elbow. Shoulder/Trapez. Intense pain. Diagnosis? HELP!

Complicated: That sounds like a very complicated problem that has no simple solution. You have had all the diagnostic tests and used the medications I would have tried. Have you seen a neurologist or a pain specialist? This would be my own recommendation at this point. ...Read more

Parotid gland swell, CBC ok, USN revealed R/L normal but 5.6mm hypoechoic lymph swell on R side plus hopoechoic bilateral upper cervical. How serious?

Parotid gland swell, CBC ok, USN revealed R/L normal but 5.6mm hypoechoic lymph swell on R side plus hopoechoic bilateral upper cervical. How serious?

Likely inflammatory: The ultrasound findings of small lymph nodes suggest reactive processes, likely in response to parotid gland inflammation. That said, pls check with MD if your constellation of other symptoms are inflammatory or infectious, and if not or if persistent, you may need other tests to rule out other causes of swelling and small nodes. Tests may include Fine needle aspirations and pathology examination. ...Read more

What would cause a 4mm hypoechoic nodule in left lobe of thyroid gland, along with prominent bilateral cervical lymph nodes as found in a neck US?

Thyroid cyst: It sounds like you have a simple thyroid cyst and possiblt a couple of reactive nodes that may be within normal. Why did you have an ultrasound? 4mm cysts is not palpable. I would recommend regular 6-12 month follow up. It is low risk for neoplastic pathology based on your description. ...Read more

I feel something swollen in left side of neck for 1month. My doctor says it is bilateral anterior cervical chain lymphadenopathy. I am 17.i am afraid!!

Nodes: Lymph node enlargement aka lymphadenopathy is quite common in two anatomic locations: 1) the neck area & 2) the groin. These locations are prone to infections (viral or bacterial)& will result in the body's reacting with lymphadenopathy. Follow up with your MD, & also have your dentist check for any oral problems that could cause such reactive changes. If there is progressive ↑ in size, see MD. ...Read more

Not HIV: Test results are far more reliable than symptoms in judging new HIV infections, and this pattern of possible lymph node inflammation symptoms doesn't fit HIV. See your doctor if your symptoms continue or you are otherwise concerned, but you can be sure HIV is not the cause. ...Read more

See below...: With age we all unfortunately lose water and cartilage in our discs. This can cause the discs to bulge and is commonly seen on mri. Disc bulges and bone spurs from the uncovertebral joints that compress nerves can cause arm pain, weakness, and numbness. I would follow-up with your doctor to determine if your symptoms are related to the changes seen on mri. ...Read more

Can one have bilateral posterior cervical reactive lymph node swelling on the neck after wisdom tooth extraction? If so, how long does it last for?

How long post-op?: When were your wisdom teeth removed? Do you have any pain at the site of the wisdom teeth? How did you learn you have bilateral posterior cervical reactive lymph node swelling? If your physician saw you, did you ask about the relationship to wisdom tooth extraction? Lymph node swelling which originates from an infection can either subside or they can fibrose (scar), which is not abnormal. ...Read more

Numbness: Numbness in the hands may be caused from compression at several areas including the neck and carpal tunnel. A detailed exam with nerve study will help decide where the problem is located. Patients with compression of the nerve at both the carpal tunnel and the neck may benefit from carpal tunnel surgery first as it is most likely the primary cause as a recent article this month demonstrates. ...Read more

Had hysterectomy at 24 do to cervical cancer, at 36 had bilateral mastectomy two weeks later ovaries and tubes removed. Now 40 no energy, on premarin (conjugated estrogens)?

Bioidentical hormone: I would recommend you to see a physician with knowledge of bioidentical hormones. You should stop premarin, (conjugated estrogens) which is a synthetic hormone made from mares urine. Estradiol is a better choice. You may need supplementation with natural progesterone, dhea, thyroid, testosterone, pregnenolone.
