Chikenpox can cause neck TB to reoccur again? Got swollen lymph nodes under chin, ear & back of head. Is tb come back or is it due to chikenpox?

Mgt/workup: I would recommend an evaluation for TB. A chest radiograph and possibly cultures are indicated. When you have chickenpox, there also are lymph nodes which enlarge, but in six weeks should return to normal. ...Read more

1cm swollen lymph node under chin from 1 week. I don't have any other symptoms. I have shoulder pain. May be cancer? I am 18

1cm swollen lymph node under chin from 1 week. I don't have any other symptoms. I have shoulder pain. May be cancer? I am 18

Probably not: You are 18, and your lymph nodes are supposed to swell when you have an infection or even a canker sore. It's way way way more likely that this is just a normal lymph node doing its job--helping your immune system fight off bacteria and viruses. 1cm is still normal size, and 1 week is a short time. I bet you won't be able to feel it in another week! try not to worry. Shoulder pain=unrelated. ...Read more

I have a swollen lymph node under chin size of a pea from 3weeks. It is movable and soft and my blood test and urine test are normal. Tensed please help?

Observe for now.: Lymph nodes in the neck or under the jaw usually enlarge due to infections, and will regress in time. With no symptoms, the lymph node soft and less than 1 cm, it can be observed for up to 3 months. If it increases in size, is tender or associated with other symptoms such as fever, night sweats or weight loss, or if additional lymph nodes become enlarged, then a biopsy might be needed. ...Read more

I'm 18, have one swollen lymph node under chin won't go away 3 docs said not to worry, post nasal drip won't go away. Cancer ? Help please

DOUBT Cancer!: Mild lymphadenopathy is very common with cold symptoms and can even be allergy mediated at this time of the "Fall Allergy Season." It may take weeks for the swelling to go down. The more you feel the node and palpate it, the longer it will stay enlarged and the more likely it will get irritated. Try rest, fluids, and ask your Dr. for an inhaled corticosteroid nasal spray to help with the PND. ...Read more

Swollen lymph node under chin for 4 months. Had CT, doc said was fine. Size of small pea. Why still swollen? Not sick. Overall health great. Worry?!?

Stop worrying: Mine's the size of a large lima bean and I've had it since second year of med school. If it's staying the same size and isn't obviously fixed to important stuff, just forget about it. You'd be amazed how many people have these -- a majority of folks have a small pea-sizer or two. ...Read more
