My sister is suffering from severe headache and fever. After performing CT scan on brain they told us there is some swelling on right side. Why actually it happens. Is any thing serious, anything to worry?

Hemangioma appeared on L5 thenanother on l1, int the past yr. Also schmorls nodes. History o cancer. Now have swelling behind both clavicals w severe headaches. Any ideas?

Sounds worrisome: The "swelling behind both clavicles" sounds worrisome as it could be enlarged lymph nodes (especially with a history of cancer).

A primary care doctor and oncologist can evaluate to see what's going on. ...Read more
