I keep getting swollen lymph nodes in my groin area. They all come and then go away but I keep getting them. Is this normal as long as they go away?

Difficult to say: There are several things to consider. It could be just run of the mill mild folliculitis...But there is also something called hydradinitis supperativa. The latter is more acne like and takes far long to treat and go away. For now. Stop shaving. Make sure you replace the razor frequently and sterilize it in chlorox or the like in between shaves. ...Read more
I've had swollen lymph nodes for a week should I see a doctor or wait a little longer and see if they go away on their own?
Swollen lymph nodes are always concerning.
If they completely disappear in the next week to ten days, then it is less concerning.
If there is any question, any residual swelling, or if you have other symptoms-sweating, fever, fatigue, then you need to be seen.
In short, you must feel completely normal and the noses gone or you need to see a DR. ...Read more
I have had reoccurring swollen lymph nodes under both armpits with no other symptoms. Could this be from deodorant? One will go away then come back.

I have reoccurring swollen lymph nodes in groin. These swell to around size of black olive or 2. Red, painful, they go away and come back. Is it bad?
Worth an exam: Not necessarily bad, but worth an exam when they are active. Hidradenitis, among others is a possibility. ...Read more
My 7 year daughter was recently bitten by a tick on her scalp. Now she has 3 swollen lymph nodes behind her ear. Will they go away by themselves?

What would cause drainage from one ear, swollen lymph nodes that don't subside and intermittent hazy vision in one eye? Thank you.
Sure: Depends on the cause. Swollen nodes caused by infection or inflammation would be expected to go back to normal whereas those caused by cancer normally keep on growing (there are exceptions even to this, though). Moral of the story: unexplained enlargement of nodes should be evaluated by your doc. Best to you. ...Read more
Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad 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
I have had swollen lymph nodes come and go for about 3 months now. No other symptoms, and I have used the same deodorant for over 10 years.
Dependent on where the gland swelling is.
But for this to be present for 3 months is not a normal occurrence
I would suggest seeing your DR and getting a full exam to find the etiology of the swelling. ...Read more
You definitely: Need to discuss these problems with your doctor in the near future. Possibilities include infection and malignancy -- not things to play around with or ignore. ...Read more
Probably: I hate to say run to the doc every time you feel something but i'd rather be safe than sorry so maybe you should see your doc, especially if the nodes are very large, in multiple locations, not related to an infection, or associated with unexplained weight loss or fevers. Best to you. ...Read more
