Lymph glands: Generalized enlargement of lymph nodes are seen in infectious mononucleosis, malignant blood dyscrasias and other infections. I'm not sure that they would be found on the rib cage itself or on the shin bone. I recommend an evaluation by a hematologist or an infectious disease specialist. A lymph node biopsy as well as other tests may be advised by the specialist. ...Read more

Small painful lump behind ear & under chin.  Ear aches as well as scratchy throat. Want to go to dr, but it's the weekend. What to do to ease symptoms?

Ear Pain: The lumps you have noticed are most likely swollen "glands" or lymph nodes. These enlarge and can be painful when you are fighting an infection. The ear pain with the location of the swollen lymph nodes sounds suspicious for an ear infection. I recommend ibuprofen 400mg every 6-8 hours for the pain and seeing a doctor tomorrow to check your ear and throat. ...Read more

I've got a hard lump on my neck  very painful for past year. Help?

Neck lump.: If it's in the front of the neck or under jaw, it could be a salivary gland. Sometimes there are stones in the salivary duct causing this. If on the side, a lymph node is most likely. Lymph nodes swell with viral infections, but can be a presentation of something worse, a lymphoma. If it is growing it needs to be biopsied. If it comes and goes its its less urgent, but still needs a doctor visit. ...Read more

Painful lump, what could it be? I'm 23 years old and in fairly good health. I noticed a lump on my neck yesterday.

Probably inflamatory: Painful lumps in the neck occue due to throat infections. So if you have sore throat, then this lump is unlikely to be anything worrysome. But you need to watch it for 10-14 days. If it keeps growing(and does not start subsiding soon), you should get it checked by your family doctor or by an ENT doctor. ...Read more
