Small lump on right side of neck, just behind jaw, about inch below ear. Is this just a swollen lymph node? Slight sore throat. Worried it's a tumor.

Small lump on right side of neck, just behind jaw, about inch below ear. Is this just a swollen lymph node? Slight sore throat. Worried it's a tumor.

Lymph Node: You are most likely feeling a lymph node that is reacting to a infection that is causing your sore throat. Lymph nodes monitor our bodies and aid in the fight against infections. Once the infection is over this lymph node should return to normal. If it persists, bring it to the attention of your primary care physician. ...Read more

Benign report...: 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. ...Read more

How to tell when a lump in the neck is a swollen lymph node or something else? My lump is not sore either. On left side only!

How to tell when a lump in the neck is a swollen lymph node or something else? My lump is not sore either. On left side only!

Get examined: I believe these are reactive or benign reactions to your previous story of runny nose but since it is low on neck and on left, have a clinic doc examine that for you. The definite way to tell noninvasively is by radiologic imaging or even a biopsy But those procedures are only planned if your clinic doc saw your person, evaluated your lump and decides. We can not tell by just reading your notes. ...Read more

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: 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. ...Read more
