Is it possible to get swollen lymph node on face below nose? Does it mean I have cancer?

Lymph nodes. If this is of recent onset it is probably due to inflammation in the area and not to cancer. Cancerous nodes are usually quite hard (stony) to the touch, fixed to the skin or underlying tissues and have been there a while and are getting gradually larger. At your age this could be due to anything on your face, mouth, etc. The chances that this is cancer are the last thing doctors would suspect.

Not Necessarily. I would see your doctor if this is the case. A variety of things can cause swollen lymph nodes and it is important to figure out if this could be something more serious. Read more...
Possible. Any lymph node larger than 2cm warrants further evaluation. However, the longer the nodes have been prominent but unchanged, the lower the probability of cancer. Other factors of importance include your age, smoking history, overall health, family history, etc. I advise you seek out a formal consultation from your primary care doctor. A biopsy may be indicated. Read more...

I have what I think is a swollen lymph node on the back of head. Tender to the touch and hard. Noticed a week ago. It's pea sized. Should I see a dr?

Not necessary. If the lymph node is that small, not to worry. It will likely go away within a few days or a couple of weeks. You only need to see a doctor if it doesn't go away or continues to enlarge. Read more...
