I have a swollen gland in neck and it pulsing really fast about 100 beats per minute and looks like swollen lymph node in right arm by elbow. Cancer?

Unlikely: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. You may watch and wait. You may feel the nodes every couple of weeks, if any of the lymph glands doubles in size, becomes painful, ulcerates, or other nodes become enlarged, or you develop fever, or lose weight, you should see a doctor.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

Viral infection: You probably had a viral infection and weakness may be a residual effect. It may sound counter intuitive, but should start exercising, start with low intensity and gradually increase the rigor of exercise.

Small red blood cells high CRP swollen glands in neck and one arm pit weight loss feeling unwell sometimes fever tired all the time?

Systemic disease: This cannot be diagnosed over the internet. It sounds as if you are in the process of having an extensive evaluation and would continue with this. It requires a stepwise analysis of each and every finding to finally arrive at a specific explanation for the problems. This could be a primary blood disorder or an infection or both. Good luck and best wishes. ...Read more

I have extreme fatigue, canker sore, sore throat, congestion, low rbc count, low mono count, high lymph count. No fever or swollen glands. Is it mono?

No, not necessarily: It can very well be any viral infection other than mono, would give the same picture, the low RBCs count isn't related, it can be due to anemia from any cause, in your case could just be heavy menses. Confer with the doctor who ordered the test or get a HealthTap prime consult if you wish. Other than that rest, fluids, salt water gargles, pain killers till that bout is over, wish you wellness ...Read more

Hi! My daughter (8 yrs) just woke up complaining of pain in both armpits. I immediately think of swollen lymph glands. Any ideas?

Hi! My daughter (8 yrs) just woke up complaining of pain in both armpits. I immediately think of swollen lymph glands. Any ideas?

Agree with you: I think you may be right on track! Many viral infections, especially, can cause lymph nodes to swell, and the armpit nodes are commonly painful. I would check to see if she has a fever at all, and look for any other signs of viral infection (sudden fatigue, sinus drainage, runny nose, dark circles under eyes, etc.). Also gently check the neck for large nodes. Fluids, vitamin C, l-lysine, and REST. ...Read more

Inflammation: Any inflammation, even dandruff in the area drained by the lymph node can result in enlargement. You may feel the node every couple of weeks, if the lymph gland doubles in size, becomes painful, ulcerates, or other nodes become enlarged, or you develop fever, or lose weight, you should see a doctor. ...Read more

Please how can one differentiate between a normal and swollen lymph node of the neck, armpit and groin. How is this treated?

Please how can one differentiate between a normal and swollen lymph node of the neck, armpit and groin. How is this treated?

Simple answer: 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'm 17, and a few days ago saw/felt a swollen lymph node in my neck. Today I realized that my armpit and groin had swollen lymph noded as well.

Possibly viral: If you have other symptoms such as fever, aches, malaise. Check with a private doctor to have definitive tests, especially if you noted enlarged nodes suddenly without any associated pain, tenderness or apparent illness. The cause need to be known because most causes are treatable. In your age, mononucleosis is prime suspect but you need to be seen. ...Read more

After I swim I get swollen lymph nodes for a couple days (on the right side of my body) in my groin area, neck, & armpit. I'm not sick at all.?

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells/digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph everywhere for bad stuff 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 exclusively pump milk for son. I noticed a gland under my armpit No lump jus feels like a rolling vein or something. Is it a lymph node swollen?

Could be?: It is possible and could be a location for a lymph node. Without a physical exam it's hard for me to say exactly what it is. So glad you are getting that good breast milk for your baby! My other questions would be... Is the lump sore or tender? Is there any redness overlying? Does it move with your finger? Or does it seem to be " fixed" Do you have a family history of breast cancer? ...Read more

My lymph nodes hurt. They are not swollen just hurt. Neck, armpit, chest, groin. All periodically. I have had bloodwork and x-rays no lymphoma. Idea?

See your doctor: Blood work and x--rays do not exclude the possibility of lymphoma. But if the nodes are not enlarged, lymphoma is extremely unlikely. Viral infections such as mono may lead to tender nodes. Discuss it further with your health care provider. ...Read more

Swollen lymph nodes in groin armpit and neck allare under a CM in diameter. Also all have been examined by doctor they are very movable. Should I worry?

No, don't worry!: Lymph nodes are present in everyone, and they are normally under one centimeter in size and moveable. In young people like you, they are often more easily felt. This can be because you're thinner, and because your immune system is more active. So don't worry! The picture shows lymph vessels and lymph nodes in green. ...Read more

Low lymph and high eos include swollen lymph nodes in neck armpit and groin?

Low lymph and high eos include swollen lymph nodes in neck armpit and groin?

Actual number?: It depends on how low the lymph is and how high the eos count is. A viral infection can cause low lymph whereas allergic reactions can cause high eos. This figure may also be a reflection of the total WBC. For example, if the WBC is 20% below average, then a 20% rise in eos may well be normal. You need to see your doctor about this condition. ...Read more

Swollen lymph nodes in neck and a hard, movable lump in armpit. Normal CBC from one week ago. Any idea what it can be? Very anxious right now.

See details: Numerous issues can cause lymph node enlargement but the hard mass in the armpit does give one cause for concern. Without knowing your history and being able to examine the areas involved, it is difficult to give specific advice. However, I would urge a complete evaluation including ct scan if this persists. ...Read more

Lymph nodes neck and armpits feel swollen for 2+ years but no lumps. Got CBC in nov all clear. Ct scan showed swollen lymph nodes in neck. What is it?

Lymphadenopathy: Lymph nodes can enlarge for many reasons. Their purpose is to help fight infection and other inflammatory conditions and these may cause enlargement of the nodes. They can also suggest primary tumors of the lymphatic system. The only way to clearly differentiate is to biopsy, but most clinicians will not do this without a high degree of suspicion as to a malignant condition. ...Read more

I have a extremely small bump on my testicle. I have swollen lymph nodes in my neck, jaw, groin and armpit. Do I have cancer I'm really worried?

Medical checkup reco: You need a medical examination to help you find out what all your symptoms are due to. The size of the lymph nodes matters in assessing seriousness of your condition. If the nodes are >1cm, get checked up right away and find out the cause. There are causes other than cancer which can lead to enlarged lymph nodes. ...Read more

What is wrong with me if my lymph glands on my neck are swollen and I feel achy? I have some moles that I am worried about.

What is wrong: What is wrong is that you realize that you have a potential problem, but haven't seen your doctor yet. You deserve better! Swollen and achy lymph nodes can be due to viral or bactrial illness, inflammation, infection, or cancer. Have your doctor examine them and your worrisome moles. ...Read more
