Pain under left clavical,swollen lymph nodes on both sides of neck,no energy,vertigo,pressure around back of neck and under ears?

Pls see your doc: Although your signs suggest an inflammatory process with secondary lymphadenopathy, you have to see an oncologist to rule out metastasis, malignancies and endocrine neurological effect of a head and neck growth. Pls take time this week to get checked, perhaps get serology and other tests to get to the cause, even a lymph node work up for lymphoma. Take care. ...Read more

Go see an ENT doctor: It could be just repeated viral infections(colds) but you need to be sure that you do not have strept throat. A visit to your ENT doctor can help. If you want to try controlling it on your own, i wiould sugges that you try taking vitamin c, 500mg daily and give it a 6 month trial(it is pretty cheap vitamin). This may help, in which case you should continue taking it on a regular basis. ...Read more

What does it mean if my 5yr old son woke up with ping pong size swollen lymph nodes on both sides of his neck?

50/50 strep or viral: Very large anterior cervical lymph nodes are seen particularly in strep throat. A fever would almost certainly be going along with that. You can also see very large lymph nodes with mononucleosis and other viruses so in itself is just a warning sign to keep a close eye probably get a doctor to look at him and do a throat culture. ...Read more

Can a left ear melanoma give swollen lymph nodes on both sides of the neck, on the back of the head left side and also on the top of both shoulders?

Certainly: Melanoma can travel anywhere in the body, no matter where it originated. So, yes, a left ear melanoma can travel to lymph nodes in your neck (cervical nodes) on both sides, including the top (supraclavicular) and bottom (infraclavicular) areas of the collar bones. ...Read more

Swollen glands: Are these glands sore, any fever or sore throat, any other swollen glands in other locations? Was a throat culture done? Any skin or eye changes? There are so many causes for enlarged lymph nodes, CBC alone does not give enough information, what was the platelet count?. If these glands persisted you should take your son back to his pediatrician for follow up & additional workup. Good luck ...Read more

FNA: Hi. Of course you could have a viral or bacterial upper respiratory tract infection (which would usually have accompanying symptoms), so waiting several weeks to recheck is fine. However, with your history, I'd be tempted to do FNAs of the large lymph nodes for cytology and include needle washing for thyroglobulin. Talk with your endocrinologist who's running the show. She/he will plan accordingly ...Read more

I have had a viral infection for 3-4 days, is it normal for swollen lymph nodes to appear on BOTH sides of the neck?

Lymphadenopathy: Yes this is very common. The viral infection is disseminated through your upper respiratory tract and the lymph nodes are enlarged and tender because they are doing what they are supposed to do, fighting inflammation. Hope you are better soon. ...Read more
