Throat cancer lymphoma

Common Questions and Answers about Throat cancer lymphoma


Avatar f tn I would review the ultrasound findings with the endocrinologist to see if this would be consistent with lymphoma and I would consider a repeat biopsy for flow cytometry to help make a diagnosis of lymphoma. Your are correct, lymphoma is treated differently than papillary thyroid cancer and often does not require surgery.
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 n tn In the net they mention that this could be a sign of cancer (lymphoma, cancer of the lung or throat) why my Doctor didn't send me for a biopsy of the lump just to be in the safe side. I went to a second Doctor and she could hardly feel it and said no to worry about it that the lump it's too small. I don't know what to do.
Avatar n tn Is it possible these new symptoms could have anyting to do with her enlarged lymph nodes? Possibly lymphoma?
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 f tn The notes from my op said Globus and dysphagia of my left tonsil. He ruled out lymphoma and throat cancer. Is this all in my head coz its really getting me down??
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 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 If however it is something more sinister like lymphoma or secondary to a cancer someplace, then they may never go down. So you really need to know why these nodes are swollen in the first place.
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 A few years ago, I went to the doctor for severe depression and lumps found in my neck around the throat area. He checked my arm pits, also and immediately said I could have cancer. At the time, my family and I were dealing with my brothers colon cancer so I put it aside and missed a biopsy appointment.
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 I was diagnosed with lymphoma a couple months ago, and have been having alot of health issues, but now, I noticed swelling yesterday in my gumline of a tooth that has today become painful. I had an issue with this tooth and side of my mouth right after I was diagnosed with lymphoma, and the dentist told me there was a small crack in the tooth but did not want to do anything at that time because of it affecting my treatment.
Avatar n tn Hi, The pathologist would be able to distinguish lymphoma from a squamous cancer. Try to see if the report made requests for confirmation with certain tests such as immune-based staining procedures. These additional diagnostics may confirm if the tissue is not very specific.
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 m tn Hi, I am having some symptoms that appear similar to those I've read about for lymphoma, and I'm hoping you can shed some light. They are: -Swollen lymph nodes on the lower left side of my neck for about 6 weeks (an ultrasound 1 month ago showed 4 nodes, largest was 1.4cm) - i can feel a lump in my throat as a result. -Swollen, painful lymph nodes running up the right side of my neck for about 3 days now. they feel about 1cm and firm, like a bean (but they move).
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 n tn Hi Doctor I am 18 years old. Since a while ago (discovered it maybe six weeks ago) I have had two swollen lymph nodes on my neck - one hard, one soft! The soft one doesn't hurt, but the other one hurts when I turn my head backwards. Not very much, but I feel it hurts a bit. I'm quite sure the hard one is a lymph node as well, but if you got any other ideas, please let me know.
1955387 tn?1324934444 Hi! Well yes, beta-2 microglobulin levels can be elevated in multiple myeloma and lymphoma, but this needs to be clinically correlated. Hyper-metabolic lymph noes are seen in cancers with increased glucose uptake such as in Hodgkin's lymphoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and lung cancer. With the size and position of lymph nodes and increased beta-2 microglobulin levels, I am sorry, but yes, there are increased chances of cancer, esp lymphoma. Take care!
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 m tn Hello Toni & welcome....I'm sorry to hear about your girl.....Are you sure it's Melanoma? Usually, Melanomas are Skin cancers/tumors that can be seen....On skin, mouth, in throat, on legs, back, etc.... What your describing would be Lymphoma....Swelling of the Lymph Glands or nodes is a symptom.....Did your Vet do a needle aspiration? To draw cells out of the nodes? These are sent to a lab to determine Cancer or not....
1759782 tn?1313009988 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. Please discuss this with your doctor.
