Had swollen lymph nose in groin; biopsy 7/2016; realized md took out other lymph nodes and not main; main still bothers me; biopsy negative; worried?

Lymph node sampling: Sometimes a surgeon won't biopsy the right area -and it sounds like in your case this may have happened. I would definitely call the surgeon right away to find out what the thinking was in terms of which nodes were taken out. There should be some rationale. This might explain why the pathology (microscopic exam) was non-revealing. Hopefully your symptoms can be matched with these tests to help u. ...Read more

Good day I woke up with swollen eyelids nose bridge and forehead. I had sinus last night and took two allergex. Would an antihistamine work better?

Probably not: Allergex is an antihistamine. It is chlorpheniramine. If it was an allergic reaction, it should have helped. If it helped, but only slightly then maybe taking a longer acting antihistamine like (cetirizine or fexofenadine) might help. You should also consider other causes for the swelling is the antihistamines are not helping. ...Read more

Help. Roof of mouth is yellow spotted and red blood lines. Tonsils swollen. Runny nose. Cough. Ben going on 3 weeks.?
