Lump in neck lymph nodes

Common Questions and Answers about Lump in neck lymph nodes


Hi Charley/Duchess Ive had two lots antibiotics and the glands <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> have stayed the same . Ive got swollen glands <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my groin and under my arms as well soo hey sorry but I haven't got a clue what causes it.
I am 43yo male, and recently had US and CT scan of the neck to investigate two swollen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> which were present for longer than a year <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>. Several <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> were found on the jugular(mid) chain, many sub-centimeter and 5 >= 1 CM the largest ones were 2.26, 1.65 and 1.55 CM. They are on both sides of the neck and under my chin as well. Nothing else was found in CTs of abdomen and groin. I have a biopsy scheduled for next month, but have read myself into anxiety attacks.
The only change I have made in my daily activities. Yesterday I noticed a few knots on my head, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> behind my ear and today a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> on the side of my neck. Have had a bad headache for the past two days and dont know if it could be from the medicine or what. Any suggestions?
Our <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> swell when an infection is present <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the body, be it strep throat, a small woumd, or a kidney infection. Unfortunately, the swelling doesm't necessarily decrease when the infection clears. The bloodwork your son had probably had a white blood cell count included in it, and sounds like it was normal. (White blood cell count is a more accurate way of detecting an infection in the body.) So, the advice sounds quite reasonable. Good luck!
Hello - I am wondering how long I should watch a lymph node that is swollen before seeing a doctor. To date its been about a month that I have had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> node swollen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>. I also have a nose that will not heal. It is always mucousy and sore, its has been this way for over a year. Also when I swallow I feel like I have a lump in there and recently have had a harder time breathing. Like making my bed leaves me a bit winded or even talking.
in addition, I have felt smaller, firm lymph <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my groin area and also smaller, tender, non-firm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> and beneath my jaw. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my armpit there are some extremely painful lymph nodes, when touched. I also have been experiencing oral candida, and I also would not be surprised if I have systematic candida. I have not been sick with anything since about May, when I experienced a case of pink eye and before that I was sick with a bug in January and strep throat in November.
But i rcently found out how to look for lmph <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> as a sign of hiv is swollen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span>. I think i have found my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> and groin area. i ahve never really dealt with allergies before but it is spring in my area. the bumps i feel are about the size of a bit smaller than a bean and down. is it normal to feel thee bumps? they dont hurt atall and im not sick. also, is it possible to irritate noes by touching them constantly?
You may not have been sick but local infections like dandruff or a dermatitis too can cause a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> node to swell and be tender. Watch the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span>. Do not touch everyday but once <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 10-15 days. If the lump increases in size, becomes painful, changes color, bleeds, changes shape or consistency or more similar lumps appear then consult a doctor. Worrying too much regarding this could be causing the headaches and eye strain. Your stiff back and hop and knee pain may not be related.
about 20 days later i develop ed lumps under my right armpit i visited a GP and he said they were too superficial to be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> node swelling.he also checked my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> and groin and could not find any swelling..i also asked for the test for both strands of HIV which were taken 25 days after and were negative..My GP also said that the swelling would take care of itself which it did...
This is my first post ever on the internet, but I am very nervous that I might have HIV. About 4 months ago <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> December I noticed a small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> on the left side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>. A couple weeks after that I got sick (everyone in my family had the flu), and I started feeling around my neck constantly and I started to feel more tiny lumps.
When there is an infection or inflammation somewhere <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the body, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> may enlarge. Since the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> node <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> is persistent, with no symptoms of fever,then a biopsy, as your doctor recommended,could be very helpful for a correct diagnosis. I don't think you have reasons to worry too much about the intramammary lymph nodes,but I am sure your doctor will discuss with you if they need to be further investigated or just monitored to make sure that they do not enlarged to much.
Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> can be the result of tonsillitis, pharyngitis (infection of upper throat), infection in mouth, caries in tooth, internal ear infection, outer ear infection, eczema, dermatitis, dandruff, breast cancer, fungal infection, other cancers like lymphoma etc. Since you do not have any other symptoms, and since you do not have a lump in your breast (in males it almost always is taken as cancer), chances of cancer are less.
My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> and behind my ears are swollen they hard as a rock and non movable. Iwent to the doctor she said its not strep, not an ear infection and not mono. She took blood and im waiting for results. What could it be? Should I be worried?
) and he discovered a small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> that he thought could be either a carotid body tumor or a swollen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> node. He ordered a carotid ultrasound and a CT soft tissue. The ultrasound examined the lump and defined it as 1.3cm wide x 7mm deep and determined it was likely a lymph node. The CT found "all lymph nodes and cervical spaces are more numerous than typically seen but none meet the criteria for enlargement.
The following day I discovered more swollen (but not painful) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>/jaw region. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> node was painful for 2 days. On January 5th I discovered swollen lymph nodes in my armpits. One lymph node, on the left side, was painful. The pain went away in 2 days as well, but they're still swollen like the ones in my neck/jaw. Right now I have a small, painful lump in my leg, close to the back of the knee.
Since I have been off the medication for the past 2 weeks, I now have the same enlarged lymph node on the side of my neck which aches constantly. I have had various issues with swollen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the groin and armpit and base of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>. They ache inparticular when I am tired and deal with this more lately. It used to be once or twice a week they would ache, I would nap, and they would feel almost daily.
But here a month later, I still have these lumps/knots <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>, one big one, and a very painful <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>. I am also sore in my upper back & under my shoulder blades. My neck cracks when I mess with it. The knots were at a point when I first noticed them where I could rub them out, but they came back. Now I can't rub them out and they are just very irritating! The main knot is deep in my neck, can't see it or even feel it with your hands unless you press into my neck quite a ways...
Hello I 1st notice on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> (left side ) A <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> I have had this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> for about 5 years it stays the same size has not gotten bigger but however it will get smaller and bigger how I lay my head if my head is not laying on my pillow right it will get big and then when I fix my pillow it will get small again , I told my DR about it and she is making me get a CT to see what it is any ideal should I be worried it might be cancer ??
I'm assuming it's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the front of your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>, and my first thought was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span>. I understand you're scared, but guessing about it won't fix whatever the problem is and if it IS something serious early treatment often can completely cure the problem. The longer you wait the more it can fester and get worse.
He was put on a course of antibiotics. No other <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> are swollen except his left one by salivary gland. It seems like the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> node has gone down a bit on its own. If there is not a good improvement by Thursday he will be getting the FNA. I will keep you posted. Thank you!
She gave me an antibiotic for the toe(which I did not take because the infection finally went away) and said the neck was fine. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> July, I had my annual checkup with my PCP and he did not feel anything wrong with my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> November, I still felt the tender spot and also thought I felt a lump or something different on the right side of my neck. Went to another doctor; doctor said neck felt okay. Beginning of December I went back to my PCP to have him feel my neck again.
Hello, for the past couple of weeks ( 3 weeks ) my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> on the left side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> has been swollen. I dont know what caused it i just woke up and it was there. When I touch it it feels hard. A couple of days later I got a lump on the back of my neck just a lil below my ear, and it hurt a little but not as much as its been the past 2 days. I wake up in excrutiating pain and i literally cant move my neck right or even left more then like 2 inches.
I have a firmed hard <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the back of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> behind the ear under the skull bone. I can feel that it is starting to affect my left ear. The doctors thought it was a sweelling gland but is not. The lump is very firm. What could possibly be? One of the doctor's think is a bone grown.
