1cm swollen lymph node under chin from 1 week. I don't have any other symptoms. I have shoulder pain. May be cancer? I am 18

1cm swollen lymph node under chin from 1 week. I don't have any other symptoms. I have shoulder pain. May be cancer? I am 18

Probably not: You are 18, and your lymph nodes are supposed to swell when you have an infection or even a canker sore. It's way way way more likely that this is just a normal lymph node doing its job--helping your immune system fight off bacteria and viruses. 1cm is still normal size, and 1 week is a short time. I bet you won't be able to feel it in another week! try not to worry. Shoulder pain=unrelated. ...Read more

I have swollen, tender lymph nodes on the left side of my neck and just above my clavical. No other symptoms. Could it be cancer?

Unlikely: Enlarged lymph nodes can be due to cancer but in that case they typically are painless. Infection related enlargement of nodes is often tender. if the nodes do not settle down in 2-3 weeks, you should get checked by your primary care doctor. ...Read more

A swollen lymph node behind my left clavical has grown slowly to over 6 mm. There are also two more small ones. Blood work came back anemic 9.4 hg but there are no infections and no other symptoms. What could be the causes?

A swollen lymph node behind my left clavical has grown slowly to over 6 mm. There are also two more small ones. Blood work came back anemic 9.4 hg but there are no infections and no other symptoms. What could be the causes?

Go see a blood speci: A blood specialist(hematologist) or oncologist can guide you best. You have anemia(hb of 9.4gm) which along with enlarged lymph nodes raises possibility of some serious problem in your system which will require further testing to find the caus eof your illness. I would not delay seeing a good doctor right away. ...Read more

Lymph glands: Generalized enlargement of lymph nodes are seen in infectious mononucleosis, malignant blood dyscrasias and other infections. I'm not sure that they would be found on the rib cage itself or on the shin bone. I recommend an evaluation by a hematologist or an infectious disease specialist. A lymph node biopsy as well as other tests may be advised by the specialist. ...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
