What Danger Is Humira To Lymph Glands
I have ankylosing spondylitis & I take humira. My CBC came back with Lymph & Monocyte electronic were evaluated as high. 45.5% & 8.4%. Bad or not?
Worse if low: Still mounting good immune response I would be more concerned if low, check with your rheumatologist
I have a firm, movable, non-tender swollen lymph node in my neck for 3 weeks. I had a cold 1.5 weeks ago. Prescribed humira (adalimumab) and azathioprine.
I am on Humira (after methotrexate) have swollen lymph nodes (seen via ultrasound) but normal CBC, should I still be concerned?
Yes: If swollen nodes due to infection. Infection is possible with normal CBC
I have swollen lymph nodes in my neck a yeast infection and lumps in my groin that are painful and sometimes itchy I am currently on humira (adalimumab)?
Bad headache, chills, stuffy nose, tender neck lymph nodes, fatigued, mild sore throat, body aches. NO fever. Could I have the flu? 32/f on Humira (adalimumab)
Blockage results: Lymphedema occurs when there is a compromise of the lymphatic circulation. This third circulation (arteries, veins) carries things too thick to be safely carried in arteries and veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. It is propelled along by normal body movements but contains a thick material called lymph. Blockage causes it to back up causing soft tissues/skin deformity.See 1 more doctor answer

Biopsy: The only way to definitely know why lymph glands are swollen is biopsy. However, most of the time they are benign. Benign glands are generally small, painless, soft, and located in several areas. They also tend not to get larger, and sometimes wax and wane in size over time. A growing lymph node, or one which is painful or very hard to touch should be looked into.See 1 more doctor answer
Feel for them: You can feel for then under the armpits, in the neck, in the area above the collar bones, and in the inguinal region (the front body crease where the leg meets the torso).See 1 more doctor answer
You're better: It means that what ever was causing the swollen gland has resolved and the gland has returned to its normal small size.
They often do: The injection of foreign material under the skin by a bite is one of many reasons that lymph glands swell. Any material injected moves in the body serum to the glands where it is processed & rendered harmless. Glands often swell temporarily if they are doing extra work.
Different functions: Glands secrete fluids like saliva or hormones (salivary, pituitary, etc.). 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. They do not secrete anything.See 1 more doctor answer
Fairly: Any infection with tuberculosis is cause for concern; however, if it is just in his lymph nodes, his chance of complete recovery with appropriate therapy is very good. He will need to be on several months of multiple antibiotics, however.
Lymph gland collar: Show to your Dr. This week would be good. May just be a fat tumor.
My lymph glands have lymoh nodes on them and I have to have a blood test. What would the blood test tell me?
Explanation: Enlarged lymph nodes, especially in the neck are usually due to an infection such as strep throat. Another common cause is infectious mononucleosis (mono). A blood test is usually done in this setting to prove that mono is the cause. If the nodes (lumps) don't go away and the mono test is negative, your dr. May consider x-rays or a biopsy to be explain the cause. You should make sure to follow-up.
Should I be worried about a right swollen lymph gland that shows in the morning and is not there throughout day?
Not a lymph node: I doubt a lymph node appears and disappears with such regularity. Have a doctor see you during the morning.
