639396 tn?1223339971 the last time i was in the ER, however, they did a CT scan and found that i have swollen lymph nodes in my stomach. i was merely sent home after given some morphine. my family doctor called me a few days later to ask how my pain was in my stomach, but it is still severe. she said that she was concerned about the swollen lymph nodes that the CT scan found but she did not tell me why she was concerned or what it could mean.
Avatar f tn suddnly they found cancer in his lymh nodes and ssaid that it had to have been somewhere else first i honestly believe that it was stomach cancer or throat cancer from the h-pyloi this scares me as i still have no ins.
Avatar n tn It seems that my lump near my throat is not a lymph node. And that the other lymph nodes in my neck are not swollen (at least the one that can be felt by hand), Also that my fever is on the normal range and that the pain in the abdonimal is weird and maybe asymptomatic as it is moving and is not constant. So hopefully everything will be ok. Ofcourse I will go to a doctor when I go back home for a better opinion.
Avatar n tn bih=638) Breast cancer primarily occur in lymph nodes under the arm (axillary nodes), lymph nodes around the collar bone (supraclavicular and infraclavicular lymph nodes), and llymph nodes inside the chest near the breast bone (internal mammary lymph nodes). If you have nipple discharge, flaking of the nipples, and painless lumps, that is definitely a sign of cancer.
Avatar m tn Hello, This looks like a swollen lymph node in response to the cold that you had. Lymphadenopathy (swollen lymph nodes) is usually caused by a viral or bacterial infection. Other causes include allergic reactions, arthritis, cancer, metabolic diseases, and an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism). Treatment for inflamed, swollen lymph nodes, also known as lymphadenitis, depends on the cause. In some cases, over-the-counter (OTC) pain relievers and warm compresses may be all you need.
Avatar f tn I have swollen lymph nodes in my neck I already know I have lung cancer, but my jaw hurts and the lymph nodes hurt, should I be concerned?
Avatar f tn She has nt had it graded as no surgery yet.Has lost hair and got neuropathy. If regional lymph nodes are affected does this mean it has spread or is it just regional. Also the omentum CAKE. cOULD THAT BE CAUSING HER BELCHING AND FLATULENCE and will they stop once omentectomy done. She did lose weight but is actually putting it on again. Any help or advise is greatly appreciated. according to report it says she has serosal thickening on sigmoid colon?
1435527 tn?1283621533 This could be swollen lymph nodes or cysts. Lymph nodes become swollen if your body is fighting an infection, sometimes even with a simple cold. If they persist, you should have them checked out by your doctor. Good luck.
Avatar f tn Sounds like lymph nodes. You may want to check the back of her legs. Not meaning to raise any alarms, could be some infection or possibly Lymphoma. I would get her checked ASAP.
Avatar f tn It all started in June when I noticed hard tiny (about the size of a pea) lymph nodes in my groin area. I went to my doctor because I was a little freaked out. He said I had some enlarged lymph nodes in my throat as well (I did not think anything of it because they have always been kind of big). I had mono twice in high school so I assumed they would always be that way. Anways, he had me get a chest x-ray, blood tests, and a complete ultrasound. Everything came back normal (thank God).
Avatar n tn Lymph nodes enlarge when there is an infection. The head and neck area have an extensive network of lymph nodes. These lymph nodes function like a filter, and thus increase in size in the presence of infection to filter out organisms. Even with treatment, some lymph nodes remain enlarged. A recurrent infection would further increase the size of the lymph node. However, there are other conditions that can present with lymph node enlargement. Head and neck malignancy is an example.

Avatar f tn At lymph node dissection for breast cancer a certain area of tissue under the arm is removed to examine the lymph nodes. The number of lymph nodes found in this area can vary greatly between women. Information about whether or not cancer is found in the lymphnodes under the arm gives us information about spread of the cancer and is part of the staging of the cancer.
Avatar m tn perhaps swollen for some reason - maybe an infection in your body, like a cold, etc. Notice also that swollen lymph nodes can stay swollen a pretty long time after an infection. Here you can see all the lymph nodes in the human body: Have a nice day!
Avatar f tn 9 cm, and a sentinal lymph node biopsy - 3 lymph nodes were removed - showed that all removed nodes were clear. I chose to have a skin-sparing mastectomy and immediate reconstruction, followed 6 weeks later by 4 rounds of AC and then Tamoxifen. I've been doing great!! About 5 months ago, while on a business trip, I noticed that my upper rib near the bottom of my sternum was very tender and painful.
Avatar n tn s not true secondary lymphedema, which they normally call lymphedema from cancer. Sometimes the patient has less lymph nodes to start and the cancer is a trigger for it to show up and spread. You do need to see your doctor as soon as possible though just because you have had cancer and they should do a pelvic cat scan, MRI or ultrasound to be sure there is no problem with your ovaries and/or colon.
Avatar f tn She told me that both sides of her thyroid showed papillary cancer, part of her thymus was taken and it was positive for cancer and they took several lymph nodes and they also tested positive for cancer. She was told to stop her thyroid meds immediately and referred to an oncologist as well as a follow up with her endo. My question is.....will having RAI help her since it's in the lymph nodes? I had a dose of 150 mCi for my cancer and it was contained.
Avatar m tn Last time i got the sore throat it made my front neck lymph nodes to get swollen and it would hurt to touch. The tenderness and pain got better and its getting less swollen now. But 5 days ago i started getting a very bad stomach pain and nausea. Few hours later i was vomiting and had the worse stomach pain.
Avatar f tn Get a complete ENT and dental check up before you think of cancer as the cause— less likely as the lymph nodes swell and subside too. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Do discuss with your doctor. Take care!
Avatar m tn hi i have a 2 year old daughter she has her lymph nodes up in her kneck groin and the back of her kneck for the last 6 mths they have never gone but more are appearing i took her to the doctors 4 mths ago who ordered blood tests they came back she was anemic i have since found another 4 lumps on the back of her kneck i rang my doctor that said there was no concern as there was no other symptoms what shall i do im really worried
Avatar n tn If this is hurthle cell cancer, it is usually more aggressive than papillary, but the staging system is the same. It depends on age, cancer size, which lymph nodes were involved and spread outside the neck. Would discuss this with your endocrinologist to learn the details/staging and treatment plan for your case. Usually I-131 (radioactive iodine) is used.
Avatar f tn Do your lymph nodes ALWAYS swell when cancer is present in your body or are there incidents where there are absolutely NO signs at all that you might have some type of cancer? Thank you.
Avatar f tn We do not have a good understanding of what this means. We understand that the cancer had spread to the lymph nodes but are wondering what implication the note has to it. We have now been told that my father will need to undergo chemotherapy but not radiation. Can you tell me what implication this special note will have and what his prognosis and life expectancy is?
