Avatar m tn Hello. I'm becoming increasingly worried about swollen glands in my neck. The swelling is located on either side of my neck, roughly half an inch below the mastoid process (these might be the upper cervical lymph nodes but I'm not sure). They can't be seen, but when I feel my neck they feel hard. I've had them now for about three weeks. My only other symptoms: a slight sore throat that comes and goes, and a very infrequent cough.
Avatar f tn Hello, I first noticed my lymph nodes were swollen on the left side of my neck about 2 weeks ago. They may have been swollen longer than that, I'm not sure because I don't regularly feel my neck. I was concerned about it so I decided to go to the doctor. I explained my concerns to my doctor, told her I wasn't experiencing any other symptoms (no pain, sore throat, fatigue, loss of appetite, etc.) I also don't have swollen glands anywhere else.
Avatar n tn It is not painful but it is visible to the eye. I also have had a gland in my throat that is slightly enlarged but not super swollen. It hurts when I yawn. It has been there for seven weeks. The armpit started this week. Also I have lump in my belly on the middle left. It feels like a ball and is tender. I fear cancer and as soon as my health insurance kicks in I will go to the doctor but I need to know if this has happened to anyone else and what is was.
Avatar m tn Well, I went to for the appt Friday. Guess what? Another round of "I can't see anything wrong with you"...He dismissed my biopsy and said I should go back to my ENT for further follow up. Ironically, this was the first day in almost 3 months that my glands weren't swollen! Like taking your car to a mechanic only to have it run perfectly. This is very frustrating.
Avatar f tn I have swollen gland on my left hand side of my throat, I have no tonsils, but when it really gets really swollen I find it very hard to breath and swallow, please help.
Avatar m tn hi, i got a sore throat about 2 months ago, the doctor diagnosed tonsilitis, and put me on calvepen, this got rid of the fever symptons but my glands stayed swollen an my throat stayed red, when the fever came back a few weeks later i went back and he put me on augmenten, this had the same effect i went back last week and was put back on calvepen and he did a mono test which came back negative, but said my white blood cell count was high and it looked like i was at the tale end of a virus, somed
Avatar f tn When my lower wisdom tooth and surrounding gum was sore a few years ago I had swollen glands and a sore throat on the same side. I found ibuprofen worked best as it's an anti-inflammatory. Make sure you have something to eat before you take it though(even just a biscuit or piece of fruit)because taken on an empty stomach it can damage your stomach lining.
Avatar n tn Over the course of the day my symptoms worsened, I had a severly sore throat, swollen glands, headache, all of my joints ached but mot my muscles and had no fever. The next day I saw my family doctor. He tested for strep, (test was negative). He said my lungs sounded good, no sinus problems and blood pressure was fine. Said he had no idea what it was. I was instructed to take Ibuprofen and chloriseptic spray for thoat to help with pain.
Avatar f tn s and she says that my throat seems like I might have some sinus issues, my glands are swollen not my lymph nodes..she told me not to worry. She noticed white fluid on the back of my throat. She says she will get me to do some blood work and take a urine sample if I am so worried about the hpv and to check for chlamydia+hiv (my choice). Better to be safe than sorry since my ex did cheat on me with several women. She is also going to check if I have mono.
Avatar n tn Often people mistakenly call the cancer in the thyroid throat cancer as the thyroid sits in the throat area. You would be best to post your question in the cancer forum.

Avatar m tn old was seen today for a fever and sore throat complaint. the ped. said she has a throat infection and swollen glands and prescribed meds. she did check other areas of her body for glands (at least that is what i think she was feeling for). about 7 weeks ago she had the same thing (tho the whole family passed around a fever/infection). should we be overly concerned that she has been sick like this twice in two months? what would be the tell tale signs of leukemia or lymphoma in a child?
Avatar n tn I have slightly swollen glands and sore (nurofen) every four to six hours. Don't feel like I have infection anywhere should I go to doctor. Don't want to waste their time. Only had this for three days.
Avatar f tn My started having a sore throat about the end of last year, and I saw that there were white dots on my throat ( the kind of dots I get sometimes in your mouth but it goes away in a few days), I went to a doctor a few times and he said it's no big deal.
1548905 tn?1303331009 Today, I went to see the doctor, he confirmed the swollen glands. And he also found I have sore throat, I dont feel anything about it. All the swollen glands cannot be seen by appearance. I dont have fever, no diarrhea, no weight loss. I also did the normal blood test, which showed WBC, RBC and all others are good. I am still concered abou HIV infection. I am wondering the risk of being infected by HIV. Meanwhile, if I go to test on Monday, which means only 7 weeks after the exposure.

Avatar f tn It has now been a month that my neck glands and my throat glands have been swollen steady. It is not sore, the only pain I feel is when they start to grow bigger, when ever i'm chewing and swallowing it will feel like a pinch sometimes, but not always. I went to my doctor early this week, but he's not sure whether to put my on antibotics for 2 weeks or not because he thinks it could either make it better or make me feel worse.
Avatar n tn I'm recently waiting for results back fromSTI screening in the mean while I have a cancer on my tongue which Ive always gotten. but hear recently I've noticed that my left tonsil is enlarged and not hurting when I swallow I have no temp and my glands near my jaw are swollen ?????? I'mm trying not to FREAK OUT and hope that none of these symptoms are related and just a coincidence of occurances.
Avatar m tn - Swollen armpit glands (not individual nodes, but a general swollen feeling) for 4 weeks, starting 23 days post exposure. Is this the normal timeline for acture HIV symptoms, and is this a common one? - Could this be related to another STD anyones aware of? - Does the Oraquick (gum swab) test provide the 80-85% accuracy at 4 weeks some people seem to be claiming, or does this figure only apply to blood tests?
Avatar f tn When I pull on my right ear lobe it hurts and now I notice I have a lump right under my ear lobe and my glands seem to be swollen only on the right side of my neck. Should i be worried about having cancer or could this be something not so severe?
Avatar f tn hi, was reading all letters, god , i going through the hell at the moment, i lost my husband just 16 month ago, to the cancer, now i m so scared of everything.
Avatar f tn I had this feeling of a tightness in my throat, swollen lymph nodes and shortness of breath. I had been seeing doctors for the swollen glands and shortness of breath with no answers. About three months ago the doctor said that my thyroid was swollen. He ran blood work and an ultrasound. The blood work came back normal but positive for antibodies. The size came back left 4.6 x 1.1 x 1.5 and right 5.2 x 1.5 x 1.5 there is a small cyst on the left side.
