How likely is it that the two swollen lymph nodes in my stomach are caused by cancer?

How likely is it that the two swollen lymph nodes in my stomach are caused by cancer?

Moderate chance,,,: You're too young for stomach cancer or most cancers like that. If you've got any risk for cancer at all it would most likely be from the blood and lymph kinds like leukemia and/or lymphoma. Swollen lymph nodes might also be from infections that may or may not be due to cancer. It would be smart to see your doctor and get a blood smear and a lymph node biopsy to start to find out. Good luck. ...Read more

What might cause swollen lymph nodes or stomach virus?

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.

They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. ...Read more

What causes swollen lymph nodes in chest?

What causes swollen lymph nodes in chest?

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. ...Read more

Can cocaine use cause swollen lymph nodes in the neck?

No: Cocaine or other drugs (even sniffed) would not do this. If you have a sore throat, that's probably the cause and both this and the enlarged nodes should clear pretty soon on their own. If not, and especially possible enlarged nodes persist more than 1-2 weeks, see a doctor and get it checked out. ...Read more

Can cocaine use cause swollen lymph nodes in the neck?

Can cocaine use cause swollen lymph nodes in the neck?

Depends: It is unlikely that the cocaine in and of itself would cause lymph nodes to swell (lymphadenopathy); however, whatever other substances are within the administered drug could very well do so. Use of cocaine is incredibly dangerous, not only for the well known effects and addiction issues, but also because of the co-administered materials "cut" with this drug of abuse. ...Read more
