Scattered lymph nodes throughout the cervical, submandibular, submental and supraclavicular and retropectoral regions subcentimetre in size.

Scattered lymph nodes throughout the cervical, submandibular, submental and supraclavicular and retropectoral regions subcentimetre in size.

Usual: There are many there. If tender, relates to some inflammation in the area, or sometimes a viral illness like mono. If non tender and enlarging, some other concerns. Supraclavicular can relate to pulmonary or intra thoracic issue. See your pcp and perhaps some x-rays and occasionally even a biopsy if indicated.

Pea size rock hard left parotid and l & r superclavicular lymph nodes, 2cm left rock hard submandibular lymph node & achy dull joints.

Pea size rock hard left parotid and l & r superclavicular lymph nodes, 2cm left rock hard submandibular lymph node & achy dull joints.

Lymphaeditis: Within several chains of lymph nodes and also bilaterally. Along with distant intra-articular symptoms and indurated parotid mass really requires a thorough work up.

Reactive submandibular lymph nodes can persist with mild piorrhea?

Reactive submandibular lymph nodes can persist with mild piorrhea?

Perhaps, but: Pperhaps, but periodontal disease which is a gram negative anaerobic rod bacterial infection, does not frequently drain to the lymph nodes. More frequently, mandibular infections from an unhealthy tooth will drain to the lymph nodes (and breast) on the same side.

Typically how large are submandibular lymph nodes? Mine are about 1-2 CM is that normal

See doctor: Submandibular nodes are usually small or not detectable. Any lymph node greater than one cm needs to be examined by a doctor. You may need a biopsy if the doctor can not determine a treatable cause for the nodes (like an infection in the mouth). Please see a doctor as soon as possible.

Is it normal to feel my submandibular lymph nodes on both sides that is about 1 CM in diameter each?

Is it normal to feel my submandibular lymph nodes on both sides that is about 1 CM in diameter each?

No: But you may be confusing them for your submandibular gland. Swollen lymph nodes can result from infection or rumors. Typically, infected lymph nodes will be somewhat painful due to inflammation. If you fell that ther are swollen for a while, you may want to see your doctor

I can palpate my submandibular lymph nodes bilaterally if I roll em out. Is this normal? They're small in width and approx 1cm in length. Hypochondria.

So can we!: Every time we examine our patients we check the lymph nodes. Tenderness means that there is activity, and inflammation in the area and it may be an indication that you have infection draining from the mouth. Swollen glands can indicate serious viral infection. Why not have your doctor or dentist check the area immediately.

Need reassurance. Saw endo today. Scanned neck, didn't seemed concerned about 1cm lymph nodes submandibular/submental. Thought you weren't supposed to feel them? Not sick recently. Scared. Lymphoma?

You're OK!: Normal lymph nodes measure about 1 cm in size, and in young people like you, they are often felt. If you are not having symptoms like fevers, chills, and weight loss, you don't have lymphoma. You have normal, healthy lymph nodes doing what they are supposed to do! Feel them and learn where they live. That way, you'll notice if they change! Don't worry, you're ok.

Mpv is 13.4 - everything else on cbc, including extended wbcs were normal. Should I be worried? Specifically - lymphoma? 1cm lymph nodes submandibular

Mpv is 13.4 - everything else on cbc, including extended wbcs were normal. Should I be worried? Specifically - lymphoma? 1cm lymph nodes submandibular

Nope! Don't worry!: Mpv stands for mean platelet volume, or how big your platelets are. And yours are pretty normal. 5-15 is the normal range. With everything else in the normal range, there's nothing to worry about. One centimeter lymph nodes are normal, especially in someone your age. Mpv is one of many measurements we ignore on automatic blood counts, unless you have another blood problem. Which you don't!

I can feel/touch my submandibular lymph nodes near/in front of my left ear but nothing in the right side. Normal?

Normal.: Feeling a lymph node on one side is most likely normal. If you have pain or swelling, you need to consult your dentist or pcp.

Can you roll out your submandibular salivary gland bilaterally? Or am I rolling out my submandibular lymph nodes? Unsure.

Can you roll out your submandibular salivary gland bilaterally? Or am I rolling out my submandibular lymph nodes? Unsure.

Lymph nodes: When they a swollen, lymph nodes feel like small hard boiled eggs. They can roll around. The submandibular salivary gland covers most of the floor of the mouth. If there is a problem with it, the whole mass swells up.

Is it normal to roll out submandibular lymph nodes from under the jaw billaterally? I keep doing this because of health anxiety.

Is it normal to roll out submandibular lymph nodes from under the jaw billaterally? I keep doing this because of health anxiety.

Doesn't sound normal: It does sound like you'd benefit from good CBT therapy targeted on managing your health anxiety and any other issues that emerge. You'll do well at learning the skills and might enjoy the feeling of personal empowerment you gain. Avoid doing physical damage to your body. Put your intellect to good use for your own benefit. Best!

Ct results say numerous small subclinical lymph nodes in right and left neck. Submandibular and parities glands symmetrical in side to side. Meaning?

Ct results say numerous small subclinical lymph nodes in right and left neck. Submandibular and parities glands symmetrical in side to side. Meaning?

Most likely benign: We all have lymph nodes - they are the factories that build the cells and compounds that fight off infections. They can be seen on all ct scans, even in normal patients. When they enlarge, it can be due to infection or something else, like a tumor or lymphoma. Sometimes, even normal sized ones are abnormally functioning on a pet/ct. Symmetry is good, and small is good, almost always.

I have Sjogrens syndrome and have had to have both submandibular salivary glands removed and now on both sides of my neck below the jaw the lymph nodes are very hard and have not changed for almost a year do I need to be concerned?

maybe not lymph?: Are you certain that what you feel are lymph nodes? Perhaps it could be calcified scar tissue that healed like that after after your surgery? Have they been intermittently hard or constantly? If constant, it's possible they are clogged and may have to be opened.
