Could be an STI: Some people get swollen glands all over when they have a cold. If you do not have a cold and are sexually active, swollen glands can be a sign of a sexually transmitted infection (STI). It may be best to get tested for STIs.

See Doctor Now: 4 yr old, "swollen crevical/groin glands x 6 wks. Prominent cervical glands occur commonly at this age due to frequent upper respiratory infections. Prominent groin glands can occur due to mild lower extremity trauma from rough play in children. Be aware that children do not complain & it is easy to miss cues that your child was sick. See your child's doctor now for correct diagnosis & treatment.

Can a black nail cause swollen glands in the groin on one side? Smaller than a pea and not visible but you can feel it

Can a black nail cause swollen glands in the groin on one side? Smaller than a pea and not visible but you can feel it

Depends: From the information you provided, it is not clear what the "black nail" is. A possibility is melanoma and the enlarged node may indicate spread of the tumor. Please see a doctor at your earliest convenience to have it evaluated as it is not feasible to provide meaningful opinion without examining you.

My son is 15 months old and about 2 months ago he had roseola w/swollen glands behind ear they are still there and one in groin. Is this common?

Yes: The glands will always be there but will usually peak in size within a week of the infection and slowly decrease in size over a 3-4 wks. If another process stimulates them they may not shrink completely. I rarely have to do anything with glands in these locations.

Lymph glands: Glands in the groin are used to help infections in the legs/feet. They may also get infected. If it persists, see your doctor

Groin pain comes and goes, Mild pain in testicles and bladder which also comes and goes. No rashes or swollen glands. Any ideas what could it be?

See urologist soon: Obviously cannot be very serious, since it comes and goes. But it is important to be seen (preferably by urologist) to rule out intermittent torsion or hernia or even prostate disorder.

I am congested. Swore throat. Swollen glands in neck and groin hurts to swollow went to the doctor last week was percribed amoxicillen for pherengitis

Acute Pharyngitis: Your symptoms may be due to a bacterial or a viral infection. Bacterial infectinos of the tonsils or the throat lining are typically caused by streptococcal bacteria which respond well to Amoxicillin or Amoxicillin with clavulanic acid if there is no response. However, it is imperative that a viral infection like infectious mononucleosis is considered and tested for as well, consult with your md.

Hsv1+ and hsv2- for blood antibodies. Had cold sores before. Can I also get genital hsv 1 if exposed? Having swollen glands in groin. Itchy and tingle

Hsv1+ and hsv2- for blood antibodies. Had cold sores before. Can I also get genital hsv 1 if exposed? Having swollen glands in groin. Itchy and tingle

No: If a person has antibodies to HSV1 (has immunity), she should not get new HSV1 infections in places that she did not get HSV1 sores in the past. New herpes lesions on the genitals would be presumed HSV2 (if the HSV2 antibodies turned positive on the blood tests after the new genital herpes sores). Life can surprise you sometimes. Maybe HSV1 was in the genitals in the past but wasn't noticeable.

Probably.: At this point in time, it would be fine to call your doctor's office on monday. Most likely, if there was a serious concern you would have been contacted by now, occaisionally things don't happen the way they should, so for your peace of mind it's appropriate to call on monday. However, if your child is still ill or getting worse, call now!

Throat feels congested, no cough or runny nose, swollen glands in jaw, back, groin and armpit. Infection?

I had a protected sex witha female whose, @ 4weeks I had fever and became beter after using antimalaria@ 8weeks had swollen glands in my armpits?

It is hard to put...: The story together. Using protection should have prevented any disease transmission. Why were you treated for malaria? Had you traveled to endemic areas?

Can GERD cause lightheaded feeling and swollen glands? I am a 41 year old female, have a hiatal hernia. Feeling like food is stuck in chest as well.

Can GERD cause lightheaded feeling and swollen glands? I am a 41 year old female, have a hiatal hernia. Feeling like food is stuck in chest as well.

Unlikely: I would see a doctor about the swollen glands and lightheadedness. Unlikely related to hh. Hiatal hernia and acid reflux could cause the esophagus to spasm or even develop scar tissue and narrowing. This would cause the feeling of food sticking or catching. I would see your doctor about getting a test to check your esophagus. If not already taking acid medication twice a day, recommend doing so.
