Sore lump in my neck right below the chin. Lymph node? Why?

Natural response

Inflammation
May be dental infection, viral illness, other. If it persists, continues to enlarge or becomes worse, see your family doctor. Lymph nodes help fight inflammation and get large when they do so. It is usually helpful to you, but may produce unpleasant symptoms in the process. Hope you are better soon.

I have had sore throat for three days. I thought it was from my seasonal allergies, because the trees that bother me just bloomed. Now, I have noticed my left lymph node in my neck is swollen. Can that be from my seasonal allergies too?

Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells/digested food. Lymph Nodes "taste" the lymph EVERYWHERE for bad stuff 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

Dr. Amy Deeken answered:

Very sore throat, a lump in my right side of my neck, FNA of right lymph node says "lymphocytes consistent with reactive lymphoid hyperplasia" ?

Benign report...

Stringio
FNA of the lymph node is the first step in diagnosing the cause of lymphadenopathy. The quote from the pathology report means the findings of the aspirate are benign. Lymphoid hyperplasia means there is external stimulation of the lymph node by infection or possibly an autoimmune process. Please follow up closely with your doctor. Sometimes more tests are needed if it doesn't go down in size.

It been a week my neck is sore underneath chin my doctor told me no swollen lymph nodes why can it be ?

Gland

Head-face-chin
You may have a blockage of a gland that helps with saliva. One option for treat that is sialogogues (saliva inducers) such as sour balls. That may help expel a blocking stone. Consider also continuing MD follow up to look at other possibilities if it doesn't improve.

Neck mass right side assumed lymph node 3cm 2+mo. Fatigue normal CBC Chest Xray. Ent now said may carotid artery. What can ultrasound determine?

Ultrasound

Arteries
can better show what the mass is. An enlarged lymph node looks very different from the carotid artery so this question can be put to rest with an ultrasound.

I have a cold. My right lymph node is swollen. It's gone down, but now both sides of my neck hurt. feels like a sore muscle. Is it related?

Lymph nodes

Muscle
Do you have any other lymph nodes? If so it could be the cold. Check for other lymph nodes. If the cold is getting better try Motrin or Tylenol and warm compresses for the sore muscles and this problem should resolve itself. If you have persistent fevers or chills you may need an antibiotic. See your doctor in that case. You should have a family doctor to do your check ups anyway at 30 yrs old

Enlarged lymph node at right side back of neck soreness of skin below scalp eight days antibiotics not working still..can it be a insect bite?

See your DR.

Insect_sting
Enlarged node in neck can occur with any irritation of the scalp, not always infection. The longer it exists and the depth of inflammation the more the lymph node will show.
