What Does Ultrasound Show On Swollen Lymph Nodes
Ct scan showed swollen lymph nodes on right side of neck. Recent root canal on right side and sinus infection. Cbc in nov was good. What is it?
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
Size Characteristics: The exam will show the size and evaluate if the normal architecture of the lymph nodes has been preserved or disrupted. The thyroid will probably be examined to check for any evidence of tumor. ...Read more

Probably: Ct scans would show enlarges nodes in the neck, chest and abdomen. Visualization of the chest and abdomen can be improved by vascular contrast agents which is technically not an angiogram.

Male 25yrs I have had swollen lymph nodes in my right groin for about two years. Blood test are negitive and ultrasounds show mutiple? Doctors unsure?
Probably nothing: Lymph nodes may become enlarged and remain that way because of inflammation in a surrounding area. The pelvis is a "dirty" region of the body, and inguinal or groin nodes are commonly enlarged. If these have been stable 2 years it is probably benign, but if you remain concerned, biopsy may provide the answer to your question. ...Read more
Yes and No; depends.: Depending on body part being scanned, yes swollen lymph nodes can be detected. The deeper the location of the lymph node such as in abdomen or pelvis, the more likely a ct or MRI scan would be necessary to see these structures. U/s in the neck, groin, or extremities is much more able at finding enlarged lymph nodes than in deeper or thicker body parts. Ct is the preferred study of choice. ...Read more
Swollen lymph nodes for 9 months, relatively stable. Don't look like lymphoma in ultrasound, don't hurt. No other symptoms. What can they be then?
Immune function: They are a sign that your immune system is healthy, reactive, and doing its job. I imagine you are very healthy and thin. Teenagers often can feel their lymph nodes. As humans we often do not realize how many bugs we are exposed to on a daily basis. I would get that you are just fine. Your immune system is doing its job correctly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Monitoring Centers: 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Nodules: If the thyroid nodules are smaller than 10mm, than nothing other than followup may be needed. Otherwise further workup may be needed.

The ultrasound report on my swollen lymph nodes under my jaw said they are hypoechoic and vascular. Fnab to come. What % that it's benign?
Lymph nodes: Lymph nodes are throughout your neck and body. They can enlarge for a variety of reasons including infection, inflammation and even cancer. Often, a needle aspiration of lymph nodes helps to tell what is going on with a lymph node, so this is the right step in the process of evaluation. The ultrasound characteristics are somewhat concerning, so get the needle test so you'll know what it is. ...Read more
I had ultrasound on jugulodigastric lymph node that measured at its greatest at 3.5cm but then i had a ct scan that said no lymphodenpathy. Why would ct say I had no swollen lymph nodes when the ultrasound measured it so large and is that considered enlar
A Good clinical exam: ....Exam will help. This node can be easily palpated by any experienced doctor. Unless the physical exam shows presence of an enlarged node in this area, I am inclined to disregard the Ultrasound(report),which can often give false abnormalities. I would rely on doctors hands first and foremost. The imaging test of choice would be CT scan of the neck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Monitoring Centers: 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
It must be reason: For that, the most common are: 1-nfection. 2-virus. 3-inflammation: infiltration with inflammatory cells during infection or inflammation in a region of a given lymph node. 4-cancer. 5-cancer of the blood: uncontrolled, malignant multiplication of lymphocytes as in lymphoma or leukemia. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Good health, maybe: Everybody has a few swollen lymph nodes around their bodies. If you feel well otherwise, and the nodes are not super-big or fixed to surrounding structures, they are your friends. Something as simple as going barefoot in the summer can make impressive nodes pop up in your groin. If you're asymptomatic, be happy. ...Read more
Not always: Generally those that can be felt will be in the neck, in the armpit, along the inguinal area, and along the groove above the clavicle. These will feel like round bumps, usually a centimeter or more in size, and may or may not be tender, feel soft or hard, be movable or not. The clue is that they are new, and have not been felt previously. ...Read more
