For the past couple of months i’ve had a few swollen lymph nodes on the right side of my neck very close to the hallow above the clavicle.

Concerned.: Lymphadenopathy that persists is not normal and needs to be evaluated with biopsy and other tests. Please consult your family physician for proper evaluation and management. Several etiologies, some of them not benign..

Can bell's palsy cause complete deafness in the ear and swollen lymph nodes down to the clavicle on the affected side of face?

Can bell's palsy cause complete deafness in the ear and swollen lymph nodes down to the clavicle on the affected side of face?

Not likely: There may be some other underlying cause for all of this. It's possible that the bell's palsy was misdiagnosed and now with these other issues the true issue can b detected. The lymph nodes and decreased hearing are concerning and a visit to an ENT as well as imaging likely with a ct scan with contrast is indicated. If the nodes are large and mobile a biopsy may b easy to as well. Must see md.

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.

Swollen lymph nodes in neck to clavical referred to an ENT what's this mean?

Swollen lymph nodes: Many times swollen lymph nodes happen as a reaction to something/a condition occurs in the head and neck area- like if you have any inflammation, infection, or other process including malignancy that happens in the mouth, tongue, throat etc. Your ENT will evaluate your ear, mouth and throat area to see if there is anything explaining the lymph nodes and do necessary work-up -may include a biopsy.

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).

What can mean swollen lymph nodes in the groin area?

What can mean swollen lymph nodes in the groin area?

Several things: A few small nodes (less than 1 cm) are not uncommon in the groins. These are usually due to injury or infection and are usually harmless. However, if your groin nodes seem getting larger over times, you should check with your doctor since besides infection, many cancers can cause this. Some examples are lymphoma, melanoma, or testicular cancer (in men), or cervical cancer (in women).

I have swollen lymph nodes in my hip area and no where else. Also I have no other symptoms.?

See a doctor: You do not describe the area involved with any specificity, nor do you indicate what these feel like (size, consistency, tenderness, mobility, etc.). Unless you are aware of some process which might have stimulated their appearance, it would be a good idea to have them seen by your local doctor.

Possible tumor: Bilaterality of nodal disease in the groin is inflammatory or neoplastic. How large are the nodes and how firm? . Inflammation is tender. Tumor not tender. Area around anus should be checked for perianal lesion. If lesion is considered suspicious, the node must be removed for dx rather than needle bx which can be misinterpreted.
