Shoulder Pain And Swollen Lymph Nodes
I had swollen lymph nodes a long time ago and when i got rid of them the area between my neck and left shoulder got swollen it wasn't even painful its?
How?: I don't understand "when I got rid of them" since I don't know of any way to reduce lymph swelling (until the disease process has been controlled or faded away by itself as in the case of a viral infection) without medication. Is the swelling still present? If it has been present for more than a couple of weeks or getting worse, better consult your doctor. ...Read more

I had an MRI on my shoulder-found bone spurs and swollen lymph nodes in my armpits. What does the swollen lymph nodes indicate? Should I be worried?

If there are many nodes and greater than 2.0 centimeters then you should be seen by your internist for further studies (blood tests and additional imaging studies). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have enlarged lymph nodes with pain that is increasing/spreading through my neck/shoulder-right side. Left foot is also swollen. Are they related?
1cm swollen lymph node under chin from 1 week. I don't have any other symptoms. I have shoulder pain. May be cancer? I am 18

I bet you won't be able to feel it in another week! try not to worry. Shoulder pain=unrelated. ...Read more
Having shoulder pain in right shoulder only, burning sensation in right breast(inner part), and I have a swollen lymph node under right armpit. Help!
Monitoring Centers: The lymphatic system absorbs and carries things too big to go into the arteries and veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. The lymph nodes "taste" the lymph to see if anything bad is there 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. ...Read more
