Congested LN/chest: May be from PND which may be increased post nasal surgery with activity or can be new onset infection as you are somewhat immunocompromised being post op. Would call you surgeon and discuss use of zyrtec, and antibiotics. Try gargling a bit with salt water (1 teaspoon salt in glass water) and elevate head of bed. ...Read more

Rule out tumor: Tender knots on head could be inflamed cysts or skin malignancies.

That will tell you what the cervical nodes are and what kind of treatment necessary to resolve issue. ...Read more

Tender lymph nodes in neck with head pain/what is it?

Tender lymph nodes in neck with head pain/what is it?

Could be...: A few different things. Tender is usually a good sign. If you have a few relatively small tender lymph nodes & you struggle with allergies or have a cold, those could cause it. However if you have a very lg node/nodes, it's best to get that checked out. You might also want to check for swollen lymph nodes elsewhere in the body & if you find some, that would be another reason to get checked out. ...Read more

Doubtful: Pnd is usually not a precipitating factor in lymphadenopathy. Infections and allergic reactions are more commonly causative factors in lymphadenopathy. If the condiiton persists, and the nodes do not get smaller and smaller in the next week or so, than see your dr. For an evaluation. Good luck. ...Read more

Sick with a cold a week ago, had a soar throat along with very tender lymph nodes in neck. Not ill anymore but neck lymph nodes still very tender, something To be concerned? How long does the tenderness go down after illness? Should I see a doctor?

Sick with a cold a week ago, had a soar throat along with very tender lymph nodes in neck. Not ill anymore but neck lymph nodes still very tender, something To be concerned? How long does the tenderness go down after illness? Should I see a doctor?

Lymph nodes: After such an infection I would give the reactive lymph glands a couple of weeks to lose their tenderness. Even then small, shotty lymph nodes may persist months or even years but they should not be tender. Worrisome signs would be growth of new glands, increasing size of one or more glands or appearance of new palpable lymph glands in other parts of the body. See your physician as needed. ...Read more

Joint, muscle or URI: The most likely causes for your neck discomfort is arthritic change in your cervical spine. The pain comes from spasm of the muscles that overlie the bony spine or inflamed joints in the front (uncinate joints) and back (facet joints) of the spinal column in your neck. The lymph nodes raise the possiblity of upper respiratory infection, but there other serious causes for these so see your doctor. ...Read more

I'm sore under ribs (10th). done nothing to hurt myself. Also sore in my lymph nodes in the left side of neck. Any idea what it could be?

Wait And See: Ya know, it may be nothing- and if it is, it'll probably all go away in a few days, but if either or both (the pain or nodes) persist over a week or two or get worse before then, then best for you to see a doc about it. Other than that, best not to worry too much about it unless, in two weeks, it hasn't gone away or gets worse. ...Read more

I was sick 2 years ago so badly all lymph nodes in neck swelled, one is still swollen but not bad at all. Is it calcified. Doesn't hurt, can't see it?

Maybe: Sometimes lymph nodes react to infections and when the infection is over they stay enlarged. If the node is not tender and stable probably nothing to worry about. You would need some type of Xray to tell if it is calcified. Don't think that is worth he trouble. ...Read more

They're your friends: Everybody has these. If your nodes are a bit more prominent than the next person's, be glad -- your immune system may be better. Nobody really knows why. I'm also curious -- you say you're not sick at all, yet you list a gravely serious hepatitis diagnosis. You'd benefit -- even in our dysfunctional health care system -- from a relationship with a good primary care physician with time to guide. ...Read more

Swollen lymph nodes in neck, that are all soft. Moveable and under 1cm except one is 1.5 cm. Temps of 99.2 frequently and chills? Been for 3 years!

Go to see MD: You should go to see your doctor and get yourself checked. There are different things like autoimmune disorder, infection, chronic inflammation or malignancy - at your age- hodgkin's lymphoma, testicular cancer are things to be ruled out. However since you mentioned that it has been there for 3 years -then hodgkin's, leukemia /ca would be less likely-as the problem. Go to see your doc for eval. ...Read more

Had mono one year ago. Still able to feel lymph nodes in neck, reduced in size but never went away. 1 near throat is kidney bean size. Normal?

Possibly: These residual lymph nodes are pretty common after mononucleosis. The kidney bean sized one seems a litter larger than normal. If a lymph node is larger than one centimeter then it may need to be biopsied. Please see your doctor and have a full body lymph node evaluation and possibly some blood tests. ...Read more
