    Swollen lymph nodes are usually palpable and may be tender to touch. Any particular reason why you're concerned? How big were the ones that you felt under your arm?

    Lympyh nodes are best assessed by palpation rather than visual inspection (unless it is of significant size) and then if it's suspicious, a biopsy may be needed.

    Some lymph nodes are arranged in groups to drain lymph fluid from specific areas of the body. Some of these are found in the neck, behind the ears, armpit, inguinal area (singit), popliteal area (back of the knees), etc. You may have noticed your doctor palpating these areas during a routine medical examination.

    In some people, they can be easily palpable while in others they are not. If you're currently sick or just recovering from an infection, in most cases, lymph nodes in that specific area (eg. cough & colds -- neck, near the chin) will be palpable and may be tender to touch but this resolves on its own after a few weeks.

    If, however, it doesn't seem to resolve, try to palpate it (if it doesn't hurt) and approximate the size (eg. munggo bean, corn kernel, 25c, etc.). Anything bigger than a 25 centavo coin should be suspicious, especially if with other symptoms. Observe for up to 6 months on whether it changes in size, texture or appearance. If it does, consult your doctor for a full evaluation.

    It could be an infected sebaceous cyst or hydradenitis suppurativa. Please see your doctor.

    Pain and swelling is a sign of inflammation. Most commonly this is due to infection. Have your friend be seen by a doctor.

    Swollen Lymph Nodes --- HELP!!!

    Hi. I have had several swollen lymph nodes in the right side of my neck for about a week now. A week ago, the largest one was about one centimeter across -- the other ones (there were about 4 total) were a bit smaller. They were movable and a bit painful. When I felt them in my neck, I panicked (being the hypochondriac that I am) and went to a doctor (an ENT) right away. She told me that they were a bit enlarged but were movable so it could be an infection. She prescribed me 7 days of levofloxacin 500mg, once daily; but, here I am, a week after and my lymph nodes got bigger (the biggest one now about 2 cms across) and more painful -- the right side of my neck now hurts. While taking levofloxacin, I tried applying warm compresses and cold compresses (I researched this online and got info that they could help swollen lymph nodes) on my neck to no avail. I have had no other symptoms aside from a slightly sore throat (but not really too significant) and a low-grade fever. Growing up, I have gone through various bacterial and viral infections and I have never had lymph nodes this big ever so I am really worried. By the way, my doctor ordered to have a chest x-ray to find out if I had TB or a lung infection and it was negative. I also had several blood tests done -- CBC (all normal values), ESR (slightly elevated, normal should be less than 20 mm/hr mine was 38 mm/hr), CRP (negative) and Peripheral Blood Smear (no abnormal cells found). I am very afraid that this might be cancer or something and reading stuff off the internet is not helping my anxiety at all. Also, I have been a bit stressed out lately but have not had a serious illness (fever, cough, colds) for the past six months. I am a female, 28, a smoker of 2 sticks a day and apart from what I am experiencing now, previously perfectly healthy -- no other known medical conditions. Any advice or has anyone here had this problem before? Thank you in advance.

    You dont have to worry. Your lymph nodes seem to be reactive due to a previous infection. It wll regress. For your peace of mind please see your doctor.

    And by the way, I advise you to sway from self prescribing with antibiotics. Underdosing might lead to the production resistant bacteria which will render your antibiotic useless.

    Kulani rin ba mga Sir at Mam ang magiging resulta kapag binutas ko yung pimple ko or yung mga white heads ko sa mukha? lately kasi may pimple ako na tumigas na, so binunot ko. tapos ngayon may umusling balat na kapag pinipisa ko, dugo na ang lumalabas...
    ngayon kapag nakakapa ko siya, hindi ko pinapakelamanan, baka kasi lumaki.
    another one is ugali ko kasing mag-shave ng pubic hair ko.
    minsan nasusugat yung sa singit ko, tsaka sa may parteng base ng 3tits ko.
    dun sa mga nagkasugat na iyon, umusli yung kulani...
    ang laki nga kasi binubutas ko kapag naiirita ako.
    siguro mag-3months na yung kulani ko sa singit ko,bale 3 itong nasa private part ko. hindi naman masakit, as in wala akong nararamdaman.
    nakakairita lang kasi kapag naliligo ako, nasasagi ko. hindi ko na din makalbo ang pubic hair ko, kasi ang hirap ng ahitin sa parteng may umusling bilog na balat.
    im planning to see a dermatologist. (yung magandang dermatologist para hawakan yung 3tits ko, kasi meron nga din sa base nya) hehehe!
    tama ba ang gagawin kong hakbang?

    Unhappy *Need Help* Enlarged Lymph node on side of neck

    Good Afternoon to all.
    Need help po pls..

    may malaking kulani (Enlarged Lymph node) po kasi ang wife ko sa lower right side ng neck nya almost 1inch po ang size.
    nagpacheck up po sya last week and the doctor gave her some medication para lumiit *** kulani, then if hindi daw lumiit after a week kailangan na operahan.

    nag pacheck up po ulit sya today at ang sabi sa kanya kailangan daw i-biopsy muna bago operahan.

    bago lumaki yung kulani nya, lagi syang nadaing na nasakit ang balikat nya.

    magkano po ang biopsy dito sa pinas?
    ano po ang possible cause bakit nagkaroon sya nun?

  13. #52
    The most common cause of enlarged lymph nodes is infection. The doctor probably gave her somthing for it to see kung magrerespond.

    Enlarged lymph nodes in the neck area MAY also be a sign of cancer, most commonly from the mouth, throat or lungs. Wag po kayo matatakot, just letting you know what the possible causes are. Let's not worry until we have to.

    Having the biopsy done is a good idea.

    Please let us know how it goes. We'e here to help hanggang kaya namin. But still, the doctor who was able to examine the patient knows best.

    It may depend on the type of biopsy your doctor is cintemplating on.

    Fine needle aspiration is the least invasive of all techniques. It is a simple office procedure. Cost may range from 2-3K

    Core needle biopsy also uses a special needle and can get a bigger sample of the specimen. This is also an office procedure and the cost will range from 4K-5K

    Open biopsy involves an incision. A minor surgical procedure, the surgeon may have the option of just getting a significant portion of the mass or excise the whole mass. The cost for this may range from 6K-10K.

    Aside from acute infection, TB is also a common cause of lymph node enlarement. Have a chest x-ray done. This can be treated medically.

    Surgical removal of the mass is only done if all possible causes have been considered.

    Send me a PM if you need help with this problem.

    ^ Doc is this operation safe? Baka naman it would lead to something worst (mag metastasize ) or much better na lang di mag pa opera. And doc how is this performed, inpatient? outpatient?

    Thanks in advance doc

    ^ We have existing thread discussing lymph nodes you can check it here

    Lymph nodes are there to fight the infections our body contain. It swollen, enlarges or appears when we have infections, it disappears several days after we got cured. Lymph nodes larger than a 25 centavo coin needs to be consulted to a doctor for appraisal. A biopsy is common procedure made to remove lymph nodes.

    ~ Summarizing what I learned from that thread. I am not a doctor btw.
