Enlarged lymphnodes
I found a tiny lump on left side of neck which has been there since my delivery. over a month i  started getting neck pain,dry throat cold,pain in armpits very light..i recently found in Ultra sound that I have few enlarged lymph nodes and neck ache,head ache surrounding the ears.cold stufffy nose and colourless flum which i spit often followed by dry throat and itchy throat at times. no fever or weight loss so far. I went to ent specialist twice and she told its nothing but infection. As im a mother of 5 month old baby she didnt give any medicines on my first visit. but later after a couple of weeks i went again in pain. she gave me a course of antibiotic.it din make any big difference. I took a US of neck and that had the impression: bilateral cervical lymphadenopathy, possibly non specific etiology.I asked for fnac but both doc n radiologist told since the nodes are tiny its not really possible to do fnac now. The largest node on the right side measures 19*9mm and on left side 13*8mm..im really scared it could be lymphoma or something serious.It been almost a month and im suffering with this on and off..Please help.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Sorry for the delay in replying. Please don't worry, as the nodes could most probably be due to an infection. More so as you have symptoms of neck pain, cold and dry throat. As the infection resolves, the nodes will subside. If they are due to causes like lymphomas, other groups of nodes may also be palpable. It would be worthwhile to see if other lymph groups are enlarged namely, axilla and groin, these can be palpated. Also correlate with blood counts, this could lead to further analysis, like for an infection the neutrophils are raised.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
