Thyroid Dry Cough
R- side neck pain, decreased appetite, weightloss, drenching night sweats, on/off thyroid swelling dry cough. Clean blood, x-ray, & u/s. Not lymphoma?
Many possibilities.: Lymphoma usually isn't painful, but the other symptoms could fit. However, there are a number of other possibilities. The thyroid swelling is suspicious for thyroiditis. If that is ruled out, ct scan of neck, chest, abdomen and pelvis may be helpful, or possibly a pet/ct. Various infections, and autoimmune diseases can cause similar symptoms to malignancies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

2 months dry cough, swollen and painful part on the neck and armpit but its gone now,, then after taking some antibiotic, i have discovered to have thrush in my tongue and starting to have diarrhea.. im getting paranoid over this.. what could this be?

It's unclear what those 2 months worth of symptoms were - in the Philippines TB lymphadenitis (TB of the lymph nodes) is somewhat common. What antibiotic did you take? The thrush and diarrhea likely relate to that antibiotic you took-but to be sure you should get thoroughly checked out. God bless. ...Read more

Are : Are we sure this is a lymph node? An isolated lymph node in the suboccipital area would be unusual unless there were inflammatory/infectious processes of the posterior scalp skin or very rarely spread of skin cancers. Did it appear at the time of your other symptoms or has it possibly been present for some time and you now just noticed it. Sebaceous cysts (blocked oil glands) or small lipomas (fatty tumors-benign) can be mistaken for a lymph node. If it persists beyond 3-4 weeks it would be reasonable to have it looked at. If it remains swollen and tender (not usually a characteristic of a malignant lymph node) a course of appropriate antiobiotics and short term oral steroids wouldn't be inappropriate. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
