Lymph nodes: The lymph nodes usually enlarge as response to an infection in the vicinity.It lasts maximum 2-3 weeks and as the infection goes away (with antibiotics usually) the lymph nodes disappear. Outside this scenario, i would be worried and demand further investigation (ct is appropriate, a blood smear and CBC with differential, as well as a bmp with enzymes markers analysis) up to an excision biopy. ...Read more

Infection, shingles?: This sounds like a skin infection of some sort. It could be a bacterial infection (e.g. staph, strep, etc) but I'm more suspicious of herpes zoster (shingles). See a doctor ASAP. If bacterial, you'll need an antibiotic. If shingles, an antiviral drug (e.g. valacyclovir) needs to be started very soon to have maximum benefit. ...Read more

Swollen lymph node on left side of neck, no other symptoms and it's been there for more than 6 months. Is it cancer?

Swollen lymph node on left side of neck, no other symptoms and it's been there for more than 6 months. Is it cancer?

Probably not!: You definitely need to see a healthcare provider to have this examined. But i can reassure you that one swollen lymph node in someone your age with no other symptoms is very unlikely to be cancer. Lymph nodes are where immune cells hang out, and they swell when those cells get activated. Any infection or inflammation can make them swell. Don't worry! i think you're fine, but have it checked. ...Read more
