What causes swollen lymph nodes for 2 years, night sweats, spots on spine MRI, severe pain in back chest legs, rash on stomach, liver probs unrelated?

It might be a Lympho

Skin_rash
A lymphoma is one likely diagnosis. But it requires a biopsy of the lymph node and also of the bone marrow before we can be certain. You need to see a hematologist or medical oncologist to help you arrive at a proper diagnosis and then treatment for your problem which is likely to be a Lymph node cancer /lymphoma.

T-2 will show h2o & it appears white. It is in the way the MR looks @ things. That's a simple explanation. In aback the T-2 will show H2o content of disks & spinal fluid is white. It's all in the way the system was programmed. Do some googling and C what U find. It's complicated.

Who reads the lumbosacral spine mri?

Your radiologist

Mri
Your radiologist. Your orthopod (if you were referred and he ordered the study) will probably take a look as well, for any surgical planning, etc. But ultimately a radiologist will make the final read and is responsible for the findings.

Does a t spine mri look at the lungs?

Not well

A Thoracic Spine MRI is set up to visualize the anatomy of the thoracic spine. Some parts of your lung will be seen but not the entire lung and not with protocols that are designed to be diagnostic for lung disease.

Would cancer show up in a full spine mri?

Few extra ideas

Cancer
Dr. Colen is right, but there are some gotchas. 1. If it is all over the whole spine (in the bones) and looks uniform, it can be missed. This is akin to a "super scan" for a bone scan. If in the marrow like leukemia and uniform, it can be missed. If very early, small lesions can be hard to call, even if you suspect them.
