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

What do you suggest if my son (3) has swollen lymph nodes in neck and groin but bloods all normal should I still be worried?

What do you suggest if my son (3) has swollen lymph nodes in neck and groin but bloods all normal should I still be worried?

Depends on situation: Lymph glands generally swell after stimulation and can do so after a general illness, vaccinations, or if limited to one area, some local factors. If they enlarge and gradually shrink back to resting size within 3-4 weeks, they are behaving normally. You have done the initial baseline workup, so I would give it time and recheck if it persists too long. ...Read more

Been to dr at least 6 times for swollon lymph nodes in neck and groin. All say they are "shotty nodes". Now I found another node in my armpit. Cancer?

Been to dr at least 6 times for swollon lymph nodes in neck and groin. All say they are "shotty nodes". Now I found another node in my armpit. Cancer?

Why so many times?: If you had cancer in your lymph glands, they would have continued to enlarge, leading your doctor to do a biopsy. Unless the lymph nodes are growing and become bigger than 1.5 to 2cm (one inch), it is hard to think of them as cancerous (normal nodes can be palpable as you have felt them yourself). Please quit feeling for them as it only makes you more nervous and anxious. Get checked 1-2 times/yr. ...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
