Abnormal?

I was wondering something. I see alot of people say cervical glands in the neck are normal up to 1cm. I had a ct scan say bi-latercal cervical adenopathy but they were all sub-centimeter. I looked it up and adenopathy means abnormal. My doctor says my ct is normal. I called the radiologist and asked him what was abnormal about it and he said the number of them. So if that is true and none of them are enlarged but the number is abnormal. Does that mean I have more than I need?

btw I went to ent because i have:

extreme tightness in my neck

difficulty swallowing

pain in shoulderblades

sore throat

(i have all these symtoms (symptoms) very long time over 8 months)


I have had cbc, endoscope, thyroid scan, chest xray

I have been taking antihistamines and prilosec and it dont help......

also took anti-biotics a few times...




I looked up lymphandenitis and alot of these symptoms match it...But do I have swollen glands or not

and if I do how long is too long to have them??????????

I can feel them under the skin but cannot see any lumps on my skin



pllllz help I am a single father of two and this is driving me crazy :(

Cervical means neck.  Lymphadenopathy means abnormal enlargement.  There are many possible causes.  I will send you a message about this.  Look at your profile for that.
