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?

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?

It depends: It depends on the size and number of enlarged lymph glands in the armpit. If there are only a few enlarged lymph nodes and they are only minimally enlarged (between 1.0 and 2.0 centimeters in size) then there is likely no problem. 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 more

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

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

Probably not: You are 18, and your lymph nodes are supposed to swell when you have an infection or even a canker sore. It's way way way more likely that this is just a normal lymph node doing its job--helping your immune system fight off bacteria and viruses. 1cm is still normal size, and 1 week is a short time. I bet you won't be able to feel it in another week! try not to worry. Shoulder pain=unrelated. ...Read more

What can cause swollen lymph nodes?

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
