Cancer :: Swollen Lymph Node On The Left Side Of Groin?

Aug 13, 2014

I am 16 years old and I have a swollen lymph node on my left side in the groin.It is hard,not painful and it moves easily.It is not very big ,even smaller than 1 cm (is that normal).And also on the other side of the groin on the same place I have another swollen lymph node but not that big as the one on the right side.It is important to say that I have had the swollen lymph node for more than a half year and I have had blood tests done but everything was fine.It hasnt got bigger nor smaller,it stays the same.I am very afraid of lymphoma but I read about it and I dont have any other symphtoms and I dont have swollen lymph nodes anywhere else on my body(I checked carefully). So am I just being hypochondriac or there is a possibility of cancer?

Swollen Lymph Node On The Left Side Of Neck

My husband has had a swollen lymph node on the left did side of his neck, under has like beside the throat . it's been about 2 months . it is sore on occasion and has had occasional deep ear pain same size. He said he is not sick and feels fine. He has common allergies is it. No other symptoms. He went to the doctor and was prescribed amoxicillin 500mg and has been taking x3 a day. Today is the sixth day and still no results. Doctor said. One back when all the antibiotic is gone. He is kind of a worry wart about things and it's stressing him because he is thinking the worst. Is it common for lymph nodes to stay swollen for so long? He is pretty healthy.

Anxiety :: Swollen Lymph Node In Groin

So been trying push on from my health anxiety, thought i was getting somewhere until last night.. I was laid in bed last night and where my leg joins my hip was very tender, further investigation i could feel a lymph node (well I presume its a lymph node) 

This was at like 11 o'clock last night, obviously started googling, diagnosed myself with cancer and got about 3 hours sleep. Not the first time I've noticed a lymph node and gone to the doctor's, happened twice before, one in my neck and one my groin a couple of years ago but they wasn't tender to touch.

Google was spurting all stuff out, it said to look for cuts on your legs etc if the lymph node is in your groin, I got bitten or cut myself on my left knee (the lymph nodes on the leg hand side) but that's a full thigh length away from the groin node! surely that can't be the reason for the lymph node been tender/swollen. It says to wait for 2-3 weeks to see what happens but health anxiety doesn't allow patience when it comes to stuff like this.

Cancer :: Swollen Lymph Node At My Collarbone Area?

I noticed 3 weeks ago some tenderness and in my collar bone area. I felt around and noticed a tiny lump. (I need to move my shoulders forward and dig to find it )After a few days the pain was gone, but it is still a lump. It moves freely and is not hard. Urgent care said it was not concerning at all, but I can't stop feeling it. Does anyone else have palpable nodes there? I have no other symptoms.

Swollen Lymph Node Under Jaw Right Side

I'm 28, female & I recently checked my lymph nodes after a friend was diagnosed with cancer. I found a lymph node in my neck on the right about 1/2 an inch down. It was noticeably bigger than on the one on the left (I can only just find the one on the left) so I went to see my doctor & he said it was an infection & gave me antibiotics (Flucloxacillin). I told him I'm allergic to amoxicillin but I have since learnt that this is almost the same. He asked me to do a blood test which I did the next day.

I started taking the antibiotics & it made the node worse, it got even bigger. My mouth started itching & my tongue & throat swelled up. I decided it was an allergic reaction & stopped taking the antibiotics & went to A&E. I was now very tired and my body was aching where my lymph nodes are (groin & particularly under my arms) and my neck, back of head & upper back hurt. Dr at A&E said it was glandular fever but when I went back to my usual doctor the next day he said the blood test had come back clear. He said it was just a general viral infection. I don't believe him because I haven't got any symptoms like fever or cough or cold, it's just aching & tiredness.

I'm really worried now because the node has been swollen for 3 weeks in total & I am aching, particularly in my back and my neck always feels stiff & the node hurts off & on throughout the day. I don't know what to do, I feel like I'm just annoying everyone with it & don't feel like I can go back to the doctor again with this same problem. I touch the node every day, could this be why it's big? I touch the one on the left though too & that hasn't grown. There is just the one swollen node.

Swollen Right Lymph Node And Right Side Of Neck

I had my lymph node on the right side of my neck swell up about a 2 weeks ago. It hasn't gone down at all and I have gone to the doctor. I had a negative strep test and I am going for a blood test soon. My hearing seems to be dulled as if I am flying to a place with high altitude, I have a really bad sore throat but not white spots or anything on the back of my throat, I have occasional mild headaches, fatigue, and a little bit of loss of appetite. I have tried antibiotics but they didn't work so obviously it is a virus. I am so confused with what i have to do but i hope it is not cancer..... I am only 15 and I am female.

Lymphadenopathy :: Swollen Lymph Node On The Side Of My Neck

I'm 20 years old and I have a swollen lymph node on the side of my neck. It's painless and doesn't seem to move. I have no other symptoms and I haven't been sick which I know is a common cause. It seems like it's gotten a little more noticeable (and bigger) but that could just be my imagination. I only noticed it about 3-4 days ago (not to say I didn't have it earlier and just didn't notice; I found it by accident)

Herpes Negative But Enlarged And Tender Lymph Node In Groin

Back in Jan. I had a lymph node in my groin (only one side) that felt hard like a pea and was tender when I pressed on it. It lasted about 4-5 days total with no other symptoms (no flu like symptoms, no lesions, etc). This occurred about 10 days post contact. Since my previous negative tests for HSV 1 and 2 I've only had unprotected contact with someone who told me he has never been tested for HSV but has never had symptoms (he's 24). I believe him completely on this. The unprotected contact was maybe 5 minutes or so for two different occasions in total where I believe I was on him without either of us having underwear on. I only did this at all because I had been drinking. Should I be worried about the lymph node? Should I get another IGG at 3 months (so next Tuesday) and would it be accurate? I don't have HSV 1 (at least according to my test).

Cancer :: Lump On Occipital Lymph Node

I have had a recent ultrasound scan done on a hard lump on what seems to be my occipital lymph node, it doesn't move at all, it feels like bone and is painless, my lymph nodes on my neck have been swollen for 15 months and now in the past 2 weeks another lump has appeared on my shin bone, that lump is also solid and doesn't move however this one has become tender, i am being referred by the doctor who did my scan to have some "needlework" done i was wondering if this means a biopsy?

I also have other symptoms however i am currently being tested for lupus and my gp is querying antiphospholipid syndrome (hughes syndrome), my recent bloods tests have shown my cardiolipin antibodies as positive (i've had this test done 3 times within the past 3 months, positive every time) also my ESR was highlighted as 2mm (but the gp assured me this is normal)

I am a 24 year old female and also an epileptic and unable to take epilepsy medications due to severe allergic reactions which is now believed to be my immune system fighting off the medications, hence all the testing which is what has led up to this point. Another symptom when i deep breath i get a sharp pain in my diaphragm in the chest.

I really want to know if this could be lymphoma or if someone has had a similar experience as i've had no direct answers yet and i'm getting worried?

Swollen Lymph Node On Jaw Line

I have a swollen lymph node on the right side of my jaw for about 10 months. I finally decided to have it checked out and it was confirmed by a recent ultrasound. Ive no health issues to report other than tmj which I've had for many, many years. No gum, teeth, throat or ear issues. My understanding is this is normally caused by an injury or infection. I do not the remember the last time I was sick or injured as I've been fortunate to enjoy good health the last few years. I'm scheduled for another ultrasound in 6 weeks. Wondering what is causing this and what else I can do?

Anxiety :: Lymph Node Swollen Behind Ear

I had a panic attack last night because I think there's a lymph node swollen behind my ear, like right under it tucked behind my jaw. I'm freaking out. I keep checking it and it's still there. And last night when I felt it, I had this feeling that this was it, this is the one time I'm gonna have cancer. And then I just freaked out. I just had a blood test done three weeks ago and everything is normal but people online are saying that blood tests don't always detect lymphoma or other cancers so what's the point? Will we ever find relief? I don't know what to do. The bump is the size of a pea or smaller.

Allergies :: Swollen Lymph Node Under Jaw Line In Throat?

Has anyone ever had a swollen lymph node under jaw line in throat because of allergies? I changed shifts at work and went to days about 3 months ago. Ever since the allergies have been brutal but I deal with it. I take occasional allergy meds. About the time I noticed a swollen lymph node on the left side of my throat . I also have occasional deep ear pain on same side. I went to my family doc and he didn't seemed worried. He gave me 500mg of amoxicillin and I took x3 a day. Well I took all the 30 pill dose and it's still swollen. It's sometimes sore but only when I mess with it. I'm 38 years old, healthy and do not feel sick. Should I worry about something major? Oh, I go to ENT in about a month to get a second opinion.

Glands :: Possible Swollen Lymph Node In Pubic Area?

I am a 30 year old female with a healthy lifestyle. For about 6 months I have had a lymph node (I think) in the top left side corner of my pubic area that is swollen for most of the day. It goes down at night and after being awake for a couple hours, it swells up again. Sometimes its more swollen than others and becomes painful to touch. It only happens on the left side.

I recently went to my primary doctor (general internist) for her to check it out but it wasn't swollen at the time (early AM) so she couldn't feel it. She ran a blood test and everything came back normal. She said that they are usually nothing to worry about if I don't have any other unusual symptoms.

I advised her of a condition in my left leg called Fibrous Dysplasia, in which I was born with and have had 4 surgeries for (last one was 5 years ago). She told me that since I don't have regular cuts on my legs, or anywhere else, and that I have no other odd symptoms that it could be caused by the associated inflammation of the problem in my leg.

I dont seem to think that its being caused by the inflammation in my leg because I was born with this condition and have had many many flare ups of inflammation and the swollen node started only 6 months ago.

I do have fairly bad environmental allergies so I am contributing it to that, but again, I've had allergies all my life too.

Also, I developed a problem about 4 years ago with a rash. It only appears on my legs (both) most of the time (about 90%) and sometimes on my arms. The rash shows up as small and large (largest size of a silver dollar) hard, red, and painful lumps. I've gotten a biopsy to confirm that it is a rash from my dermatologist. I also did an elimination diet on my own to try and figure out if they were occurring due to a food intolerance but didn't have any successful results.

With all of this information, would anyone be able to provide me with advice or a next step? Is there some other test that should be run? Could this be something other than a lymph node?

Lymphoma :: Swollen Lymph Node Below The Thyroid Cartilage

I have a swollen lymph node just below the thyroid cartilage. It's been there for months. It doesn't change in shape or size (I think) and it doesn't hurt. I know it's a lymph node because I had an ultrasound for the six-moth thyroid check-up (I have Hashimoto's) and the doctor told me that's what it is. He was very hesitant when he told me I shouldn't worry about for now it and that got me thinking. Could it be something alarming?
