Abscess in neck lymph node

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess in neck lymph node


Avatar n tn Hi! You probably have a boil or abscess on your ear lobe. Neck lymph nodes 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. If you had flu like symptoms initially then it could be due to infectious mononucleosis too. In your case in all probability it is the outer ear infection.
Avatar f tn I'm going through almost same exact thing as your first entry you wrote only for the last 4 months and the ear pain only Comes at night sometimes. My lymph node is basically in my right side of neck/throat. Because the node isn't sore or i'm sick in any way (she tested for previous mono, viruses, thyroid, blood count) its not fighting off any kind of infection.
Avatar n tn Maybe you have an infection in your ear or sinus. I have had a large lymph node in my neck for years (17 mm a few years ago). It is sometimes tender. I may have some infection in my head, because I have pain in the left side of my head, tinnitus and have recently got vertigo. I have chronic sinusitis, but now I think that I have something wrong in my ear or have a retropharyngeal abscess. Chronic infections do not always cause crlear sympotoms.
Avatar m tn It could be local infection, may not be a lymph node bit a boil or abscess or there may be abscess in breast or even a lump in breast that needs to be investigated. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn thought it was an abscess. The swlling disappeared in less than 2wks. 3wks later this lump appeared again, the source being at the same place. the vet tried to drain the "abscess" but no pus was found. the lab reports shows no abnormal cells. The vet now seems to think that she never had heart failure, though it appeared text book, & that the two are connected, but not saying how. I was hoping you could spread some light on this.
Avatar n tn ), about five days ago my left lymph node in my neck became swollen, to about the size of a golf ball. It feels like someone is punching me in the neck when ever I move. I went to the doctor three days ago & he put me on an antibiotic & a steroid. He said he didn't know what it was, but he was treating it as tonsilitis, (which I've had, which this isn't.) He said if the swelling wasn't down by yesterday, that he'd do blood work.
Avatar n tn Hi. From your description, it is hard to tell exactly if the plantar wart caused the appearance of the groin lymph node. It doesn't seem infected. Maybe the groin lymph node is caused by something else. It would be best to have yourself seen by your doctor.
Avatar m tn so,do enlarged lymph nodes contain pus???? can they be squeezed???

Avatar f tn I have a rock solid, painless, enlarged lymph node under my jaw to the right. It feels to be around 1-1.5 cm as is hard and feels attached to the cartilage. It is not sore at all. My glands have been coming up and going down randomly. They have actually ballooned up and not 5 minutes later gone back down. I have had no fevers and only night sweats once or twice. My ears are now starting to ache periodically and I am getting pressure headaches. Also my throat is sore and neck is stiff.
Avatar n tn I also had a spot compression and ultrasound of the left breast and both axillary regions because I have noticed a enlarged, mobile, lymph node in the axilla by the left breast. The exams showed only fibrocystic tissue in the breast and a single enlarged lymph node measuring 1.9 cm in the left axilla. I have a history of removal of an abscessed lymph node from my right neck region when I was very young.
578743 tn?1218557817 My daughter is 3 and developed a swollen, hard lymph node under her chin, with high fever for almost 2 wks. She was put on 4 different anitbiotics. Finally fever went away, but lymph node stayed huge, over 2 1/2 cm. Then it abscessed. Doctor performed surgery to drain it and said the lymph node was mushy and dead. They performed CBC, finally, and biopsy. CBC results were: WBC 24,000 w/ Neu 80%, Lymph 12%. Low RBC and hemoglobin and hemotcrit. No results from biopsy yet.
Avatar m tn Hi Thanks for writing to the forum! The ball like mass could be a swollen lymph node or an abscess or a folliculits. It could also be a neurofibroma or a lipoma. “Lymph nodes can become swollen from infection, inflammatory conditions, an abscess, or cancer. Other causes of enlarged lymph nodes are rare. By far, the most common cause of swollen lymph nodes is infection. When swelling appears suddenly and is painful, it is usually caused by injury or an infection.
Avatar f tn okay, I went to my general Dr. Because my lymph nodes on the left side of my neck were swollen, he ran tests they came back normal.. He did a CT of the node and it is just reactive. So he sent me to a ENT who scoped me and said everything is fine.. So then process of elimination I called my dentist and went into to see him.. He said a upper tooth on that side showed infection and it had already had a root canal and crown, so he retreated the tooth.
Avatar n tn Hello All, I suddenly got a painfull swollen gland / lymph node under my jaw bone / neck area on only one side. The gland is swollen enough that you can almost notice a difference between each side of my neck. This started last night out of nowhere. The only other symptoms I have is a slightly sore and runny nose but I just got over a sinus infection. Otherwise I feel fine. Why is it only on one side and what could it be?
Avatar m tn What size are lymph nodes before they swell. I believe I can feel them in my jawline though they are only 1cm roughly large. I believe they aren't swollen through infection. Is 1cm there normal size?
Avatar n tn to my knowledge at that time i could not think of anything that would be the case, so i figured the surgery would fix the problem, and a year later the pain is back and the pressure, but not the polyps just yet, and just recently i remembered that when i had my wisdom teeth taken out about 8 years ago i developed an infection in my mandible that probably never really went away, due to lack of funds for the required antibiotics and other treatments.
Avatar m tn ENT said he didn't think it was a lymph node but a bone. He said if I was still worried to come back in 3 months and he will do testing then but he assured me it wasn't anything serious. It does feel hard and doesn't move which I have read suggests the worst. But I guess the good thing about it is that it doesn't seem to have grown.
503418 tn?1231102336 Hello, Two possibilities are there for such lumps.It can be a thyroid cyst or a swollen lymph node. A thyroid cyst is a fluid-filled sac located in the thyroid gland. Cysts may be small (< 1cm) or large and they may develop slowly or appear suddenly. Treatment of thyroid cyst involves fine needle aspiration of the fluid. The aspirated fluid is then sent for histopathological examination to look out for any malignancy.In svere cases surgery may be required.
Avatar n tn Hi, Any infection in and around the neck, would produce these swellings. These swellings are basically enlarged lymph nodes in body. The gum abcess you have could produce such kind of swelling. You can meet a general surgeon and undergo incision and drainage of abcess under cover of antibiotics. If swelling still persists, then a biopsy could be done to assess, whether it is benign or malignant.
Avatar m tn The pain is usually caused by the rapid swelling of the lymph node in the early stages of fighting an infection. It is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. A complete physical examination and diagnostic tests such as blood tests- including liver function tests, kidney function tests, lymph node biopsy, chest x-ray and Liver-spleen scan may be indicated. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn Hello my name is Michael and i am concerned about a lump i have found in my neck, i believe its between C6 & C7 but not absolutely sure, i have had a dramatic increase in severe headaches of late, i also have periodic episodes which leave me disoriented and occasionally my hands spasm, i am unsure whether these are related but thought it wise to mention, I have been aware of the lump for two weeks now and it is not painful to manipulate but feels solid and out of place.

Dust allergy and running nose but also advises for FNAC test for confirmation.we are very much worrried what to do.please help.
Avatar n tn htm Well swollen lymph node with weight loss can be due to lymphoma. However in your case it appears to be due to infection. The confirmation is done by either an excisional biopsy or by fine needle aspiration cytology. Some doctors prefer to do a CT scan. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar f tn We took him to the vet and as we were waiting, we noticed a hard swelling in the left side of the neck (~3,5 cm in diameter), that for sure wasn't there the day before. The vet confirmed that he had fever (39,7C). The vet suspected that it was a trauma and it developed an abscess. They gave him three shots (antibiotics and anti-inflammatory). The next day the swelling seemed to be reduced a little, he ate and drunk water.
Avatar f tn The various possibilities are a cyst, a neurofibroma (localized harmless swelling in a nerve), lipoma (localized collection of fat), a swollen lymph node, an abscess, or folliculitis (hair follicle infection). An abscess can be hot or warm if it is infective due to bacteria and it can be cold without heat if it is a tubercular abscess. In your case since the lump is not painful an abscess other than tubercular is ruled out and so also folliculitis is more or less ruled out.
Avatar f tn Hi, Swelling between the neck and clavicle could be due to trauma at the site, local infection including skin infection, Lymph node enlargement - the supraclavicular lymph nodes are here, Due to pus collection / abscess formation at the site. It could be a solid or cystic lesion. Do you have any other associated symptoms of pain, redness? Is it warm to touch? Do you have any fever? For how long have you noticed the swelling? Do you remember any trauma or injury to the site?
Avatar f tn A lump that feels warm and is present on the side of the face (underneath where the earlobe attached to my face) could be a swollen lymph node or a chronically inflamed parotid gland or a parotid abscess (localized collection of pus) or an abscess not involving the parotid gland. This may need to be drained, treated with antibiotics and you must consult a doctor immediately. Take care!
