I was randomly checking my clavicle for swollen lymph nodes and I pushed on something and got dizzy. Did I push an artery? Will I be ok?

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

How to distinguish between spuraclavicular lymph nodes and lymph nodes at base of neck. Are spuraclavicular nodes 1-2 inch above clavicle?

How to distinguish between spuraclavicular lymph nodes and lymph nodes at base of neck. Are spuraclavicular nodes 1-2 inch above clavicle?

By location: Supraclavicular (Not spuraclavicular) nodes are just above the clavicle. If you trace your finger from the base of your neck and right behind the clavicle going outwards towards the shoulder, you will feel a triangular space that ends when the clavicle bends backwards. Any lymph node in that area, will be Supraclavicular. Any lymph node at or above that base of neck is considered neck node. Read more

What to do if I have a supraclavicular lymph node (left clavicle), why could it be swollen?

What to do if I have a supraclavicular lymph node (left clavicle), why could it be swollen?

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad 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. Read more
