I have a 1.5cm rim calcified lesion adjacent to the splenic hilum, there are prominent lymph nodes measuring 2.2cm?

Suspect infection: It may be old infections since there is calcification. You did not sya where you a re form but certain fungus infections are in certain parts of the country. The insert picture can suggest Arizona and we think of coccidiomycos. It you lived in the Ohio -Mississippi river valley we woudl consider histoplasmosis. What did your physicians tell you?

See your doctor: Your doctor will want to rule out lymphoma, sexually transmitted diseases, kidney infection, as well as any number of issues. She will help you get relief as well and do diagnostic tests to see why you are having trouble with your bowels or bladder. If it is simply an infection she will start you on antibiotics and if it is HIV or any other STD she will run the labs and start you on treatment.

Multiple prominent lymph nodes in central mesentery high redblood cell hemogliin and sudden mass iknee large mass in abdomen

Multiple prominent lymph nodes in central mesentery high redblood cell hemogliin and sudden mass iknee large mass in abdomen

Mesenteric nodes +Hb: Hello! The lymph nodes can be normal, infection or cancer. The raised Hb can be single (polycythemia) or all components can be elevated. The knee could be blood or inflammation, the mass in abdomen could be fat, fluid, or tumor, either benign or cancer. I cannot be more specific with so little information. SEE A DOCTOR please. Thanks

2nd time answer: I just answered your question asked differently, a few minutes ago. It looks like you have already seen an oncologist (medical? Surgical?).If s/he "doesn't seem worried"then ask her or him what the diagnosis is.

Prominent lymph nodes in the central mesentery? High red blood cell hemoglobin and hemocritic face itches clubbing

Prominent lymph nodes in the central mesentery? High red blood cell hemoglobin and hemocritic face itches clubbing

You need a good doct: A good internist can help you to sort it all out. I am more concerned about your high hemoglobin (Hb) (But you need to tell us the exact value). if your Hb is over 16-17 Grams than it requires further testing to find the cause. You may need to see a hematologist if the Hb is above the level I have mentioned above.

Erythrocytosis: It could be secondary polycythemia which is caused by either natural or artificial increases in the production of erythropoietin, hence an increased production of erythrocytes. The causes could be an adaptive response to hypoxic conditions or other such as EPO-producing mass or use of anabolic steroids. It certainly requires a thorough hematology work-up to determine the cause.

After CT scan found out that I have prominent lymph nodes around small intestine. What does this mean?

After CT scan found out that I have prominent lymph nodes around small intestine. What does this mean?

Several things: Bonnie, lymph nodes in the abdomen could mean many things. The term reactive used by the doctor usually means in reaction to an infection of some sort (usually a virus) which is the most likely answer. The most ominous (but far less likely) possibility would be a lymphoma or other tumor. These are very uncommon, but I'm sure they recommended follow up, which you should definitely do.

Lymphadenopathy: If we combine all you the information you have given, need to make sure it is not a growth with spread, but it could be different causes, some intra abdominal problem and different problems in the back of knee, high hemoglobin and hematocrit is based on how high is it will make the significance of it. You need to consult with a physician with detailed infromation

No sign cancer in breast, spread to 2 lymph nodes prominent lymph nodes about 3 inches below armpit, no primary tumour. What is survival rate?

No sign cancer in breast, spread to 2 lymph nodes prominent lymph nodes about 3 inches below armpit, no primary tumour. What is survival rate?

Same as breast mass: Survival rate of breast cancer metastatic to axillary lymph nodes, but without evident primary tumor is the same as that when a primary tumor is evident. It depends on hormone receptor status, HER2status, age and overall health of patient. Also—since some women are cured of this disease and others aren't—it depends on factors of which medical science is now ignorant.

Mass in r knee, groin and neck. Frequent vomiting. High RBC hemoglobin and hemocritic. Multiple prominent lymph nodes in Central mesentery?

High hemoglobin, Multiple lymph nodes: Polycythemia is a condition that occurs when the bone marrow produces an abnormal and excessive amount of red blood cells and platelets in the blood. The abnormal increase of red blood cells in the blood can cause the blood to thicken and clot. There are several forms of polycythemia—primary polycythemia, secondary polycythemia, and stress polycythemia—and each form has its own set of causes.

I just had an MRI done and it says that I have a prominent lymph node between the bladder and right acetabulum. Is this bad?

I just had an MRI done and it says that I have a prominent lymph node between the bladder and right acetabulum. Is this bad?

Not necessarily bad: If you have an active urinary tract infection, it may be due to the infection. A single prominent pelvic lymph node is not conclusive of any cancer. It would be reasonable to get a follow up scan after your infection has been treated.

Biopsy on prominent lymph node about 3 inches below armpit ultrasound showed no tumour or mass. Should I be worried?

Biopsy on prominent lymph node about 3 inches below armpit ultrasound showed no tumour or mass. Should I be worried?

Monitoring Centers: 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.

Breast ultsound reports a prominent lymph node 7mm on short axis, retains normal echogenic hilum, prominent retroareolar duct. What follow up is needed?

Breast ultsound reports a prominent lymph node 7mm on short axis, retains normal echogenic hilum, prominent retroareolar duct. What follow up is needed?

Why did you get one: At your age mammograms are not recommended unless you have a high risk to develop breast Cancer. So tell us the history and what did your doctor advise you to do next? From my perspective, I do not find these changes alarming. Recheck with mammography is discretionary depending on your family history and risk factor/s.
