In addition, the presence of the lump in the neck is worrisome and should be, if needed, biopsied. If the neck node is + for lymphoma a bone marrow would be required to see if there is lymphoma in the bone marrow. Hope this helps and good luck. ...Read more

I have been dx'd with scc of the skin. I know it has the potential to spread to lymph nodes. I have a pea size bump in armpit. Should I be concerned?
Probably not: You gave no details about the scc or about yourself. Where is it? How old is it? How large? Ulcerated? Do you have an organ transplant? Hiv? Leukemia? Is the scc in an old burn scar? In a chronic ulcer? Most scc are easily cured and are not life-threatening. If they are on the lips, ears or genital areas they are more serious. If you have impaired immunity it is worse. ...Read more

It is safe have surgery dealing with TB and Chronic granulomas??? I have 5.5 fibroid and Lymph node in my breast again needs be removed..worried maybe
Safe: Yes surgery is safe, but that doesn't mean the risk is zero. And that low risk is for a group of people, not an individual. While the odds of a complication are very low, it is unpredictable for an individual. Ask your surgeons about the anticipated postop course, and what complications they have seen. If they say they've never had complications, find another surgeon. One that's honest. ...Read more
If i had hodgkins disease would i be sick? I have shotty nodes in neck groin and armpit for year. Would the lymphnodes continue to enlarge? Worried
Would increase...: Some lymphomas can be quite slow growing, but one would most likely see growth over a year. Additional symptoms that would be concerning would be unexplained fevers, unintentional weight loss, new easy bruising, new enlarged lymph nodes, or inability to lie down flat and breath comfortably. As mentioned before, biopsy is the gold standard for determining if lymph nodes are lymphoma. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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. ...Read more
