Lymph nodes: Swollen lymph nodes are common and usually will swell secondary to some type of infection or allergy. I expect your problem should be short lived. However some lymph nodes will swell and remain palpable. This is usually not a concern. However, if they become big or spongy that can be a sine of lymphoma. Get checked! ...Read more

Just found a swollen lymph node on right side of neck, its sore now that I have bothered it. Should i worry? I have another small one on same side

Somewhat: I would recommend following up w a physician for an exam. Most likely related to sub-clinical (mild) infection that will resolve. That said it could represent many other problems that are more serious if it does not get better, such as hodgkin's lymphoma, in your age group. That said, you need a physician to evaluate you for a history & a physical as to whether the lymph nodes are even enlarged. ...Read more

Swollen lymph node on right side of neck for about a year now. Not growing , no pain but abnormal ultrasound on it. What Could this be? Cancer?

Cancer unlikely: If the node has not grown for a year it is unlikely to be cancer. It is not clear what you mean by abnormal ultrasound, as ultrasound is not a usual way to examine a lymphnode. You may wish to discuss that with the doctor who ordered the ultrasound examination. ...Read more

I have a swollen lymph node on right side of neck for two months i been to the doctor they don't think is cancer can it be from a wisdom tooth?

YES: Any infection in the oral cavity can cause a lymph node to swell. It could be anything from an infected tooth that needs root canal, to a wisdom tooth, to a cancer, or most simply an allergic reaction or a cold. The lymph nodes on the side of the neck drain the mouth and the nose so they can be infected by something as silly as hay fever. ...Read more

Mastoid process v LN: It's possible you're feeling your own mastoid process -which is a normal boney nodule right behind the ear. Check both sides of your head to see if it's symmetrical -if so, that's what it is. If these are 'asymmetric' findings you should have a physical exam by a doctor who can explain these findings. I would want to know more about your medical condition and risks for cancer, so schedule w/ an MD ...Read more
