Rapidly Growing Lymph Nodes
I have no thyroid, TT and tumor removal in 2012, i have slow growing jugular lymph nodes (2 of concern @ 2.1cm and 2.6cm) ?
Possible mets: In contrast to most H&N malignancies, thyroid Ca does not undergo a concomitant radical neck dissection. Rather nodes are plucked from the adjacent jugular veins. If no abnormal nodes noted at surgery the procedure encompasses the thyroid gland only. At 3 yrs. p.o. if jugular nodes are now noted , bx should be performed and if positive, the jugular veins should be dissected. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What could cause a firm, fixed mass that is slowly growing & is located in the region of the superior deep cervical lymph nodes?
If persistent,multiple lymph nodes in child's neck & under chin appear,growing in size(largest is 1.7 cm), and it is NOT cancer, what else could it be?
Can be healthy: Some folks just have big lymph nodes. Cancer in kids very seldom announces itself this way. If Junior appears otherwise healthy and the routine labs are normal, be thankful and leave it alone. If Junior seems clearly more prone to infections than other kids, then this may be one of the mild genetic immunodeficiencies in which lymph nodes grow over to compensate. ...Read more
19 y/o, 2 movable lymph nodes in right armpit. Not growing in size, sometimes aches, bad anxiety, docs don't seem bothered. Can't stop worrying.
See if this helps: It's good that they are moveable and sore. Malignancies often are fixed and painless. Also good that the doctors are untroubled. It 'd be better if they were able to convey relief as well as lack of concern, but tight schedules make that hard. A likely cause is an infection of some sort. A cyst is also a possibility (nothing to fret about). Don't use anti-perspirant. Give it time, then ask again. ...Read more
Approx. How long would it take for dcis to spread to the lymph nodes? I have heard it is a fairly slow growing cancer.
It varies: When it's found, 1 case in 100 has metastasized. There must have been a few cells that got through the basement membrane that the pathologist didn't find -- or the primary may have regressed. But don't mess around with a dcis diagnosis. Choose the option that is right for you -- and you'll be offered a choice. ...Read more

Urologist: The best and perhaps the only person who can answer this is the urologist who performed the procedure. If you have difficulty communicating with them you can request a second opinion and the new doctor can communicate with the first. Good luck. ...Read more
Why do all my docs say my swollen lymph nodes are fine just bc their not growing. There still has to be a reason their swollen right? They won't test
Swollen glands: The real reason not to test is because the only good test is a needle aspiration or surgical excision, and no md wants to do that if it's not absolutely necessary. There are no specific blood tests for the causes of enlargement of lymph nodes, which is a very common symptom, usually just reflecting exposure to multiple, mostly viral infections of head, neck, and respiratory passages. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Enlarged lymph nodes throughout neck. & a few under arms. All soft. All moveable. All 1.25 CM or less. Been there for three years. No growing. Cancer?
Probably not: I think it's just your healthy immune system working to fight off infections. The fact that they are freely movable is reassuring. Cancer (lit, 'the crab') tends to send out tentacles that tie tissues down. Also the fact they're not growing is reassuring. Relax, and enjoy your life (safely, of course). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
