Had c.t scan done for abdomen  . Flank pain and says prominent  but not enlarged para aortic retro operational lymph nodes are  identified ?

Complicated: Your doctor should follow up on this scan with you. I can't tell you definitively what those lymph nodes mean -- i'd need to know why you got the scan in the first place, what your flank plain was all about, what your other symptoms are and what your blood tests show. Please see your doctor soon to discuss this. ...Read more

Possibly: There are several other potential explanations, such as TB, fungal infections, non-infectious inflammatory conditions like sarcoidosis.

Help! swelling of throat and tonsils, lymph nodes enlarged on neck, violent coughing, very painful to swallow. Fever, body aches, head congestion.

? Head cold?: It sounds like a bad case of virus infection. It will take a few days to resolve. I would advise you to take tylenol 2 tablets every 6 hourly for the next 2-3 days. This will relieve the pain. If you have a runny nose or sinus congestion, you could take over the counter decongestant. You c an also buy combinations of 2-3 head cold medicines which contain decongestants along with tylenol. ...Read more

Could be: Sounds like something we would call "shotty adenopathy" meaning feels like gun shot. The could be nothing might could also mean something so should be followed and evaluated. If they disappear, not likely a problem. If they persist, or grow, need to probably be biopsied. Good luck. ...Read more
