lymph node

Sir , i m having lymph node in my left neck around supravicular region. Yesterday i did ultrasound sound and the size was 1*0.4*1cm. It is palable. It was first time felt in june 20, 2015 while i was having bath. It was after 1 week of i m in car accident. I was having pain and little wound in my head. I went to hospital and they did CAT scan and there was no blooding inside a head. Everything was fine. They say i had bad sinus and they gave me antibiotic for a week that was 875 mg. Then i m having direhha. Within almost 6 month i did CBC test 4 time everyhing fine and normal. In this period i took some antibiotic for my lymph node. But it is not going to its normal size. I m having watery tools from 4 month thats not diarehha.

Latest size of my lymph node is 1*0.4*1 cm. I donot think so that it is getting bigger in size. But  i feel it soft. I feel it sometime bigger and sweeling , some time small in size. May be i m wrong. My stomach is crying too much. I can eat good ,sleep good. I donot have any kind of classical symptoms except i m often feeling whole body pain. I m working 11 hours everyday for 5 days.

One more thing is i was found vitamin d deficient in may. I was having vitamin d from 4 month. Last week i did my vitamin d 25 hydroxy test . Vitamin d level was 37 ng/ml.
Still i m having 4000 iu everday. My calcium serum level is 10.2 mg. My all cholestrol, ldl,triglycyrin all are high.

I m 32 years old. Within 5 month i gain 10 pound evev i m in stress and worry. Do u think i have lymphoma or non hodgkin lymphoma?

Yes.
Findings:the patient was examined sonographically in the region of palpable abnormality in the base of the neck on left side.in this region,there is 1*0.4*1cm palpable lymph node in the area of concern.there is no evidence for abnormal fluid collection or cyst.

Impression: 1 cm lymph node at base of neck soft tissue in patient region of clinical abnormalty in the supravicular region.

No. it does not seem that you have lymphoma. There is nothing suspicious in the ultrasound report. The size is not very large, either.

Also, if it were a metastasis from some internal body cancer, then the node would probably be very hard.

It does seem that whatever is causing your GI problems might be causing the enlarged node. The left clavicular node (Virchow's node) is in the drainage path from there.

Antibiotics can cause problems in the intestines by destroying the good bacteria that should be living there, especially if you are consuming a lot of sugar.

Good luck.

It seems that stomach cancer rarely metastasizes to Virchow's node.

"They rarely metastasize to the supraclavicular lymph nodes "

It seems that a stomach cancer is much more likely to spread to the liver. Does your liver hurt when you press on it? Have you had the blood test for liver enzymes?


A stomach infection can make Virchow's node enlarge. What do you mean by your stomach "crying"?


"Every body say virchows node is 100%cancer."

Not true, can also be infection. I also wonder if your accident might somehow be the cause because of the trauma.
