Can gingivitis cause swollen lymph glands in neck and groin?

Can gingivitis cause swollen lymph glands in neck and groin?

Yes and maybe...: Gingivitis will start a response in your immune system that would potentially involve lymph nodes in your neck. Oral infection does not however directly recruit lymph nodes in the groin area. While it's possible you have a systemic condition that is affecting both areas, it may be multiple problems at the same time. Brush & floss daily; see your dentist & your physician. ...Read more

Hi! My daughter (8 yrs) just woke up complaining of pain in both armpits. I immediately think of swollen lymph glands. Any ideas?

Hi! My daughter (8 yrs) just woke up complaining of pain in both armpits.  I immediately think of swollen lymph glands.  Any ideas?

Agree with you: I think you may be right on track! Many viral infections, especially, can cause lymph nodes to swell, and the armpit nodes are commonly painful. I would check to see if she has a fever at all, and look for any other signs of viral infection (sudden fatigue, sinus drainage, runny nose, dark circles under eyes, etc.). Also gently check the neck for large nodes. Fluids, vitamin C, l-lysine, and REST. ...Read more

What are the causes of slightly swollen lymph glands in the throat?

What are the causes of slightly swollen lymph glands in the throat?

Monitoring Centers: The lymphatic system absorbs and carries things too big to go into the arteries and veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. The lymph nodes "taste" the lymph to see if anything bad is there 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. ...Read more

Possibly viral: if you have other symptoms such as fever , aches, malaise. Check with a private doctor to have definitive tests, especially if you noted enlarged nodes suddendly without any associated pain, tenderness or apparent illness. The cause need to be known because most causes are treatable. In your age, mononucleosis is prime suspect but you need to be seen. ...Read more

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

My lymph nodes hurt. They are not swollen just hurt. Neck, armpit, chest, groin. All periodically. I have had bloodwork and x-rays no lymphoma. Idea?

See your doctor: Blood work and x--rays do not exclude the possibility of lymphoma. But if the nodes are not enlarged, lymphoma is extremely unlikely. Viral infections such as mono may lead to tender nodes. Discuss it further with your health care provider. ...Read more

Swollen lymph nodes in groin armpit and neck allare under a CM in diameter. Also all have been examined by doctor they are very movable.Should i worry?

No, don't worry!: Lymph nodes are present in everyone, and they are normally under one centimeter in size and moveable. In young people like you, they are often more easily felt. This can be because you're thinner, and because your immune system is more active. So don't worry! the picture shows lymph vessels and lymph nodes in green. ...Read more

Low lymph and high eos include swollen lymph nodes in neck armpit and groin?

Low lymph and high eos include swollen lymph nodes in neck armpit and groin?

Actual number?: It depends on how low the lymph is and how high the eos count is. A viral infection can cause low lymph whereas allergic reactions can cause high eos. This figure may also be a reflection of the total WBC. For example , if the WBC is 20% below average, then a 20% rise in eos may well be normal. You need to see your doctor about this condition. ...Read more
