Enlarged abnormal jugular digastric lymph node
Hi,

I received copy of CT  (no contrast-since I am alergic) of neck soft tissue, I have a mass, started with headache, neck pain and low grade fever, body aches and tiredness.  

report reads:  enlarged ovoid left level II lymph node, meassures 2.1cm AP x 1.2 cm transverse x  2.9 cm craniocaudad and is located deep to the left sternocleidomastoid muscle. There is central hypodensity within this lymph node. There are some smaller but borderline enlarged lymph nodes seen envolving the left level 2, 3, and lesser degree level 4 regions of the neck,

Dependant hypoventilatory changes are seen within the lungs.  Mild facet arthrosis noted involving multiple right facets.  

Impression:  The palpable marker is noted to overlie and enlarged abnormal left JUGULAR DIGASTRIC NODE, THERE ARE ADDITIONA LEFT-SIDED BORDERLINE ENLARGED NOTES SEEN ALONG THE LEFT JUGULAR CHAIN.  

ALTHOUGH THESE FINDINGS MAY BE SECONDARY TO RECENT INFECTION, INVOLVING THE ORAL CAVITY, UNDERLYING NEOPLASTIC INVOLVEMENT CANNOT ENTIRELY BE EXCLUDED.

RECOMMENDS CORRELATION WITH CLINICAL FINDNGS, AND EVAUATON WITH EITHER ULTRASOUND OR MRI.

Can someone give me an idea.  My doc is out until the 21 dic, I am very anxious.  My blood work indicates several viruses, but also my absolute lymphocytes count has been very high for about 8 months now.

thanks
