Throat cancer lymphoma

Common Questions and Answers about Throat cancer lymphoma


Avatar f tn Blood tests and scans can be helpful, but are usually used after someone has had a biopsy and officially diagnosed with blood cancer via pathology testing. These other tests usually help to stage the cancer (to see where else it might be in the body). I have not personally experienced swollen neck nodes, but I have heard that swollen nodes can push on other organs and cause problems. Possibly a node is pushing against your esophogus. Good luck and please keep us posted on your biopsy.
Avatar m tn Am very concerned about HIV is because I heard usually Lymphoma causes a lump in throat which is missing for me. My throat is fine. But my spleen has a 6.6 lesion. So I guess the lymphoma should have be caused by an infection. Thats why I am more interested in knowing whether it could be due to HIV infection.
Avatar m tn Glands in the armpit (axillary lymph nodes) may swell from an injury or infection to the arm or hand. A rare cause of axillary swelling may be breast cancer or lymphoma. The lymph nodes in the groin (femoral or inguinal lymph nodes) may swell from an injury or infection in the foot, leg, groin, or genitals. In rare cases, testicular cancer, lymphoma, or melanoma may cause a lump in this area.
Avatar m tn 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. 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. Hence other possibilities should be considered.
Avatar n tn I came down with Cancer in December of 2004. I had a large tumor under the chest, around my throat and the main arteries in the neck. Scared.. you bet. Surgery was performed and the chest tumor was removed but the doctor left the remaining. Just too dangerous to remove. Received Chemo for 6 months and Rad... Went into remission for 4 years and returned in October 2008 as NHL. I fell their is a connection with titanium and my cancer exposure.
Avatar m tn Well, it still seems like an immune reaction and not cancer. Having an enlarged node pop up in the remote site (throat) is troubling, but then if it grew very quickly, that seems less like cancer and more like immune reaction. This might be one of those mystery conditions, so don't get too discouraged if a diagnosis doesn't come quickly. In the U.S. patients have a right to copies of their records, If that is the same there, you should get the pathology report.
Avatar n tn Soft nodes are most likely infection or inflammation, firm but rubbery nodes could be lymphoma and rock hard nodes are more likely from some other type of metastatic cancer not lymphoma. The prognosis of lymphoma is quite good,but I think that you should get these lymph nodes evaluated from a physician.A FNAC will lead to confirmatory diagnosis. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted.Kind regards.
Avatar f tn I can only guess and don't want to alarm you necessarily. It seems there is some slight association with Barrett's and esophageal adenocarcinoma - I'd presume from the irritation of the acid followed by inflammation. The risk is only 0.5% per patient-year. Seeing a doc can maybe give you some peace of mind. Maybe a little snip for a biopsy is on order. In the meantime you might ask here: http://www.medhelp.
Avatar m tn Father had some cancer in his neck/throat, Grandfather had skin cancer 2 years ago I felt a lump in my neck, it was checked out and said to be an enlarged lymph node, it is still enlarged up to now. 3 month ago I felt another lump this time right below my ear on the jaw line, checked again and doctor said it was englarged lymph node Blood tests revealed no lymphoma About 2 months ago I felt a lump in my check near my lower jaw line.
Avatar m tn There is a condition on lynch that causes herditary cancer and subtype two does in fact present as lymphoma. Do some research, and have your family tested! Surprisingly more and more families are being diagnosed. My family was diagnosed last year after I was found to have colon cancer at 27. My mother had endometrial, and her father lymphoma. We were found to have a microsattelite instability in our msh2 gene. Get tested!
Avatar f tn Hello is lukeimia/lymphoma transmittble through blood too blood contact if the cells enter someone elses blood stream ? Is this possible ?
Avatar m tn Hi, This seems to be a somewhat common post, but I haven't yet seen any conclusion to these type of symptoms. Basically the situation is about 5 months ago I started feeling some strange sensations in my tooth, which later developed into a sore throat and low-grade fever, gum pain (on and off) and later started developing pain in my groin. After some paranoia over a sexual encounter (unprotected oral sex) I started searching for lymph nodes on other parts of my body.
1069633 tn?1255242989 m sorry for the long-winded post, but my question is, has anyone ever had lymphoma after thyroid cancer or any cancer? Am I at a higher risk for lymphoma? This is obviously not thyroid cancer related, as I've had my Thyroglobulin levels checked. I should also mention I have had Glandular Fever (mono is the U.S term?) when I was 17, and this does not feel the same. Best wishes and love to all.
Avatar m tn Heya, during two or three nights in last week i had night sweats. So i decided to make an appointment with my doctor. He performed the basic exam (examined my neck and clavicle, listened to my lung & heart, checked my throat, etc.) and all was fine. The thing is i am still scared as **** that i have some kind of lymphoma so was wondering if anyone has a word of advice for me please. Thanks in advance :) P.S Those night sweats scare the **** out of me.
Avatar m tn Hi everybody, so, I went to the doctor first about chest pain. This has all been checked out now (blood test & X-ray) and everything is normal. The chest pain is still there, they think it is costochondritis (inflammation of the tissue between the ribs). The weird thing is I also have sore lymph nodes in my throat, but they're not swollen. They hurt at random times, often after I drink alcohol. I've had all this for ~6 months now.
Avatar n tn Your Welcome Jill, When they were diagnosing me they really wanted to get a lymph node also, and your right they usually want the entire node to get the best specimen for testing. They were convinced they wouldn't find the Sarc granuloma in my lungs because all I had was half a dozen nodules, and peribronchial cuffing. Peribronchial cuffing means a thickening of the bronchial tubes, or basically a narrowing of the airways, and they blamed it on cigarette smoking.
Avatar m tn I had a biopsy - he took 4 samples and called me yesterday with the results and said it is an aggravated lymph node. He found no cancer cells and he said with lymphoma they look for duplicative white blood cells which he did not find, he found a mix which is normal. He does say this does not rule out low grade lymphoma (I get it, my first thyroid cancer diagnosis they found nothing with a biopsy and then found cancer after removal).
Avatar f tn i used to suffer chronic tonsillitis, my right tonsil was enlarged so i went to an ent and had my tonsils removed last year. the past couple of months i've been getting pain in my neck. everytime i swallow something i feel something is still there. like a lump or something... it isn't hard to swallow and doesnt hurt... i fear it's throat cancer but doctors say my throat looks fine... everytime i swallow my ears pop... i'm tired. my breathing is heavy.
Avatar m tn Research I have done on my own indicates on rare occasion throat cancer can be linked to HPV and oral sex. Would throat cancer spread to cause NHLymphoma?
Avatar n tn Studies in dogs with Lymphoma Cancer documented elevated blood levels of lactate and insulin, neither of which declined, even when complete remission was achieved in clinical trials using a chemotherapeutic drug called doxorubicin. These alterations in dog and cat carbohydrate metabolism are apparently not limited to dogs with Lymphoma.
Avatar m tn About 2 months ago, I just got over a nasty case of strep throat. A few weaks after beating that, I began feeling a burning sensation in my front right abdomen, I made no assumption the two were related. Having a wife who has dealt with gall stones, we immediately assumed that was the case. the chest burning eventually went away, however, I now had a similar but less intense burning in what seemed to be in the exact same area, but it was not in my back and not the front.
Avatar f tn I am also worried it is something more serious like lymphoma cancer because I keep reading lymphoma creates false positive mono tests. Although I have no other symptoms except a tight feeling throat that feels as though I must constantly swallow. I sometimes have nausea but it doesnt last long and I still eat like crazy. I wish I never read that info though. I have anxiety about my health as it is. DOES ANY ONE KNOW IF THIS IS TRUE? COULD LYMPHOMA CREATE FALSE POSITIVE MONO BLOOD TESTS?
Avatar f tn I have been to the doctors today as I have been showing symptoms of hodgkins lymphoma but the doctor dismissed the idea before even hearing about my symptoms and what I had to say, but he did agree to give me a blood test as i was so worried.
Avatar f tn Dear everyone, i have a coin sized movable lump on the left front side of my neck. Its been there for a few months. And i think it has increased in size (paranoid i dunno?) It's not painful. However i had itch on my body and i read that its a symptom of lymphoma...i'm so scared. Its not painful when i swallow. Anyone been in a similar situation before?
Avatar n tn This is associated with thickened loops of small bowel, primarily ileum, worst at the terminal ileum. The primary differential is small bowel lymphoma and lymphoma related abdominal adenopathy.
