swellings behind knees and elbows

Hello,
I had a bad virul bronchities, blood test showed I have no antibodies agains bronchitis, pneumonia, influenza.
I also have big swelling behind knees (in soft part), by my elbows and groin for last 4 weeks. Sometimes a throbing paing goes through it.
According to a doctor it should go away, if not, we will do more tests.
Please, have you heard about anything like that. Thank you

Hi it sounds like you wither have a very reactive immune system or else a weak immune system -- because you've experienced "generalized lymphadenopathy" from some incfection. (The nodes behind the knees are called popliteal.)

Will it go away? Probably. But it doesn't seem at all like cancer so I wouldn't worry about that. Cancer would not likely spread all over so quickly. Plus, cancerous nodes usually don't cause pain.

Good luck.
