What can I do if my bf has swollen groin lymph nodes so does a perfect blood test mean he is infection free?

Monitoring System: The lymphatic system absorbs and carries things too big to go into the arteries and veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. The lymph nodes "taste" the lymph to see if anything bad is there 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. ...Read more

Maybe infection,,,: From your information, it looks like you've got infection. Your white count is high and that is a very telling sign of infection which could be a complication of your endometriosis. You'd need an aids test and would have other general signs like long standing fever and not necessarily abdominal pain and wouldn't have such a high white count for aids. Best of luck. ...Read more

Virus infection: Absolute counts for lymphs and neuts are all that matters, rather than percentages. Almost everybody has one or more lymph nodes palpable in the neck. This is very suggestive of a minor viral illness or perhaps infectious mono. If this is Hodgkin's, it will be obvious soon enough to treat it, and this is very unlikely. Glad you are health conscious. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

But, with the gradual decrease in the lymph count, a repeat CBC by your PCP at a later date may be helpful to determine if this is an ongoing process or something not clinically significant. ...Read more

Your best friend: I've decided that some people have a heroic lymph node that simply decides to handle all the minor invasions by microbes all by itself. If you're not running a fever or otherwise obviously sick, and the node's not huge or attached to something it shouldn't be, and you don't have any signs of a deep infection in a sinus or something that the node drains, then just watch it. ...Read more

My three year old daughter has lymph nods in both sides of her neck since she is 4 months her blood test came normal except Ldh slitlly high?

Neck nodes common: Lymph nodes are basically little factories where tissue fluid is filtered and lymphocytes that fight infection are produced. Young childen are exposed to multiple viruses and bacteria through the mouth beginning in infancy, and lymph nodes enlarge to compensate, especially the chain of nodes along the muscle that runs from the ear to the collarbone. You good test results are reassuring as well. ...Read more
