Swollen Lymph Nodes Breast Feeding
I have a swollen occipital lymph node && I am breast feeding, should I stop until whatever my problem is, is under control?
Breastfeeding and ad: Having a swollen node in the occipital area, lymphadenitis is not a contra-indication to breastfeeding. If you have other symptoms that indicates a severe infection, or you are placed on an antibiotic that is unsafe for the baby and you have consulted with your physician, you may want to pump and dump. You should resume breastfeeding asap, meaning as soon as you feel better.
Breastfeeding is providing nutrition to an infant using breat milk either directly by infant latching and sucking on the nipple or by feeding via bottle with expressed breast milk (when baby has difficulty suckling). Breast milk is the best milk for any baby but ...Read more

I have a terrible sore throat with swollen glands. What can help relieve the pain? I am a breast feeding mother.
Sore throat: First of all, consult your primary care doctor to rule out a strep throat because you will need an antibiotic for it. If it turns out that you just have a viral infection, you may be able to take Acetaminophen preferably and gargle with warm salt water every 4 hours. Practise frequent handwashing to protect your baby from getting your infection.
Lymphadenopathy: Yes, they can if abnormally enlarged called hilar lymphadenopathy.
Lung tumor: Chest or mediastinal lymph nodes associated with a lesion in the lung most often represent metastasis from a lung primary. This can further be defined by mediastinoscopy and lymph node biopsy or if in the proper position, thoracoscopy removing the lung nodule. A PET/CAT before any procedure will tell whether the nodes are malignant as whether the lung lesion is malignant.
My father has a swollen 4 to 5 cm mass in his chest, it is a soft mass, what can be the cause of this? He also has swollen lymph nodes in his neck.
Needs a medical chec: Any lump or growth in the body requires a medical check up in order to make sure that it is not a cancer. So I would advise you to get your father to go see his PCP for a medical check up and possibly some tests to define the nature of this mass.
Imaging studies: They might, but interpretation might be difficult depending upon their size. Ct scan would be much more valuable.
Hi I've been having chest pains. Had a CT scan done and they found I had two swollen lymph nodes. I have no other symptoms becides the chest pain.?
Quite a few causes: Chestwall itself, esophagus/stomache, lungs, heart, pancreas, and even liver problems can cause chest pain. In the young, more likely chestwall itself or reflux is causing pain. As we get older heart disease becomes more common cause of concern. Since u gave only limitted info, it is diiffult to tell what you have. Please repost a more specific question or consult your doc. Good luck.
It depends on size: Unless these nodes are large (more than 2cm) you do not need to worry. But many diseases affect lymph nodes. Some of the considerations include infections (tb, sarcoid, fungal infections), lymph gland cancers like lymphomas or cancer spread from the lungs or elsewhere in the body. But I would not worry unless they are large enough as the radiologists often over read them anytime they are >0.5cm.
If I had a CBC and chest xray in december and they were clear, should I be concerned of swollen lymph nodes in my neck? What could be causing them?
Lymphadenopathy: Multiple enlarged lymph nodes in the neck can be residual of a viral illness but they should shrivel over time. In my experience this is more common in younger patients. In adults, if they don't recede or if they enlarge further a biopsy is often done to see what the pathology is. A normal CBC and chest xray isn't enough to rule out some diseases.

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.

Could be: It is hard to tell based on description alone. Please see your physician for breast examination. A lymph node can be felt on exam if it is big enough or seen on ultrasound and/or mammogram.
Big: Fibrous breast describes the consistency of the breast tissue which is made up mostly of fat. Swollen lymph nodes are lumpy and usually present at or close to an area where cancerous cell, inflammation or infection is present. The lumpy tissue in the breasts is unlikely to be from enlarged lymph nodes especially in the absence of nodes at the armpits or elsewhere.
