Symptoms: swollen eyes every morning, sore throat with white spots, swollen lymph nodes, fatigue...No fever?

Many possibilities..: These symptoms are non-specific. They can be due to many causes. Examples of these causes is infectious mononucleosis, post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis (kidney disease that occur after strept infection), blood cancer, etc. I think mono is the most likely in your case but you should get evaluated soon.. ...Read more

Strep throat: Your symptoms sound a lot like acute Streprococcal pharyngitis ("Strep throat"). You need throat culture to confirm the diagnosis. Antibiotics at this late date won't shorten your sickness, but will help prevent acute rheumatic fever from the Strep throat, & subsequent rheumatic heart disease. Do see your clinician. Hope that helps. ...Read more

I woke up with a pretty swollen lymph node only on right side. I just looked with a flashlight and there are white spots/pustules on tonsil. Hurts?

Acute tonsillitis: Sounds like an acute bacterial infection of tonsils with enlarged lymph nodes in the neck. You should see a doctor and get a rapid strep test, regular throat culture, and maybe a mono test too. You likely will require antibiotic therapy, and possibly pain medication. ...Read more

Dry, rough hoarse throat for 4wks. Dr says no candida etc. No lymph up. Slight chesty cough. White spots deep one tonsil and one red patch. Scared!

Dry, rough hoarse throat for 4wks. Dr says no candida etc. No lymph up. Slight chesty cough. White spots deep one tonsil and one red patch. Scared!

Post-nasal drainage: Your symptoms are probably just due to some post-nasal drainage which can cause throat pain/irritation and cough. Red and white sports on tonsils are not too concerning. The white spot is likely debris (called a tonsillolith). They are annoying but not dangerous. The red patch is probably from irritation from the drainage. Try antihistamine or steroid nose spray. ...Read more

Hi are there lymph nodes below the collarbone? I noticed a small firm spot just below the tip of my c.b. on my r side. No pain, feels almost like bone

Hi are there lymph nodes below the collarbone? I noticed a small firm spot just below the tip of my c.b. on my r side. No pain, feels almost like bone

Need to examine: It is unlikely that what you feeling are lympnodes. You are probably feeling the rib below the collar bone.
You may watch and wait. You may feel the node, or what you think is a lymph node, every couple of weeks, if the lymph gland doubles in size, becomes painful, ulcerates, or other nodes become enlarged, or you develop fever, you should see a doctor.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine, if you are under 27 years of age. ...Read more

Recurrent migraines on bottom of head near neck and lymph nodes of head, tender spot, may it be associated with chronic head tilting?

Recurrent migraines on bottom of head near neck and lymph nodes of head, tender spot, may it be associated with chronic head tilting?

Cervical migraines: Many things can trigger a migraine attack, i.e. Certain food/drink, odor/perfume, lack of sleep, skipping meals, menstrual/period cycle, medications, sinus infection, tmjs, and for sure neck pain or cervical disc/nerve trouble. So, certainly neck pain/disease can trigger recurrent migraines and so if you have neck strain, this should be corrected. I suggest getting an eval by doc. Good luck. ...Read more

What could two soft lumps under the armpit mean? Only spot I feel swollen lymph nodes.

What could two soft lumps under the armpit mean? Only spot I feel swollen lymph nodes.

Cyst or lymph node: Lumps in the axillae/arm pit are usually sebaceous/glandular cysts or lymph nodes. The cysts will usually seem to be part of the skin or just below it. The cysts can also turn red and develop a pustular head that bursts, like a large pimple. Warm compress accelerates healing. The lymph nodes are deep, under the skin. Lymph nodes or progressive swelling needs evaluation by a primary care providr ...Read more

My left arm has been sore and since yesterday. Today I noticed that there was HUGE swollen spot of lymph nodes on the thumb side just below the elbow.

Lymph Nodes: That is not a typical place to find swollen lymph nodes and that isolated finding is not an obvious description of any common medical condition or infection. Without further information I cannot help with diagnosis but if it is huge swollen and worsening I would have a doctor look at it today. ...Read more

I have a huge spot of swollen lymph nodes on my left arm just below the elbow on the thin side of hand. This has hurt and been achy since yesterday.

Should be seen by MD: Achy, painful swelling in forearm most likely from bite, bruise, or infection. Suspect insect bite or sting, cat scratch, or injury. Other rare possibilities. Worry if red, shiny top, soft center, fever, chill, or streak. Would have a health care professional examine it in next 24 hours. OK to take acetaminophen. Probably not serious, but best to be careful. ...Read more

21 yr old. Had sore throat with runny nose. Now 6 days later palpable lymph nodes submandibular, on both sides and a yellow spot behind tonsils!

Strep, mono, adeno: The response from your nodes means your body is working the way it is supposed to. The spot does not tell us which bug you have. I suggest you seek medical attention so if it is strep, you can medicine so you reduce your chance of any complications. There are other infections you could have and many of them require supportive care. ...Read more

Swollen, tender lymph (red on one side) nodes under BOTH armpits (different spots though) since Tuesday (5 days). When to see Dr? What could it be?

R/O HIRADENITIS: It may be HIRADENITIS Supporitiva, a type of folliculitis is that can occur in the groin or armpit region. You need to be examined to make sure it is not an enlarged lymph node. Also lab work and potentially an ultrasound of the area. Your doctor may prescribe both topical and oral antibiotics. If it doesn't resolve referral to a surgeon maybe needed. ...Read more

I have spots at the back of my throat which appear to be lymph tissue, and my throat has been dry alot and sometimes saw for 5 weeks. Is this serious?

Pic worth 1000 words: I believe most of my colleagues would agree that they would need to see the back of your throat before giving an opinion. If you have a smartphone, I suggest you "say ahhh" while someone's shining a light into your mouth, take a pic, arrange for a virtual consult and then upload the pic so we can see what you're seeing. Altho we can't prescribe, we can give you useful advice. ...Read more

If I have histo calcified spots on lymph node, spleen, and lungs and now have diarrehea, insomnia, pain in chest, do i/did I have disseminated histo?

Calcified spot: Calcified spot in spleen, lungs, are due to old granulomatosis diseases such as histoplasmosis. It is old and should be asymptomatic. When you got the infection you might had a week of cough, malaise and fever, and your body took care of it.
Now about your insomnia and diarrhea should be an acute food poisoning, or stomach flu, if goes beyond 2-3 days and you feel sick see pcp. ...Read more

Neck masses: Other than lymph nodes in neck are commonly thyroid nodules, branchial cleft cysts, lipomas. If you can feel these masses in your neck, have your doctor order a ct or mri. Ultrasound is particularly good at telling whether a mass is solid or cystic, not hard or soft. ...Read more

Not necessarily: If you have history of migraine, head injury, high blood pressure or merely taking a variety of meds, could be better answer (eg, microvascular angioplasty). Ms is best diagnosed based on history and physical exam. The MRI is used for confirmation and treatment decisions in part. Get neurological consultation. ...Read more

Need to know if a dr orders a cats can for lymph nodes before s bronscopy is it cancer.

Need to know if a dr orders a cats can for lymph nodes before s bronscopy is it cancer.

Sounds like he's: Looking for evidence, but the only proof is a biopsy. Ct-scans reveal lumps, in lungs or the mediastinum, wher the heart, swallowing tube and lymph nodes live. Size and architecture point to or against cancer. Pet/ct follows a biopsy. They must know that there is cancer first, then look for the legitimate treatments. ...Read more
