Can enlarged lymph nodes in chest and lung nodules cause chest and back pain?

Probably not. Many young people have enlarged nodes visible on x-ray and unless they are so big that they suggest serious pathology, we never look for the cause. Look for some other explanation for your chest and back pain.

Could an eye orbital mass be metastatic lung cancer from a 11 mm lung nodule, with no swollen glands or other evidence of cancer?

Time has taught me.. ..That with cancer almost anything is possible. That said, it would be unlikely for a 1cm lung "nodule" to go only to the orbit, especially if it is not proven to be cancer. I would suggest you discuss this with your doc (there may be details he/she knows that we don't) but seems to me that further imaging or maybe a biopsy are considerations if either of those 2 lesions are suspicious enough.

Possibly. Depending on the type of lung cancer involved, such as small cell carcinoma, the answer is yes, but you would also expect to see other metastatic disease and lymph node involvement. Otherwise, it is highly unlikely that the orbital mass is related to the lung nodule. . Read more...

Does a chest x Ray reveal enlarged lymph nodes in neck area such as under the thymus gland caused by lymphoma?

The thymus gland. is not in the neck, it is in the chest(anterior mediastinum). If the lymph nodes get large enough, the chest xray will be abnormal. However, a chest xray is not a reliable way to rule out adenopathy, because the lymph nodes have to get quite bulky to show up. CT is a much more sensitive and specific test for mediastinal adenopathy. Read more...
