Enlarged lymph nodes persistent yeast infection – worried! cancer chat

I’m 21, and female. In november, I noticed one of my lymph nodes in my neck persistent yeast infection was enlarged, without any other signs of illness. Shortly after my groin swelled up, and then I noticed another in my neck was enlarged persistent yeast infection too. The groin ‘swelling’ seemed to go down, I occasionally worried about the ones in my neck, but didn’t do anything about it. Since november, I have been getting increasingly tired, however this comes and goes. Some days I am fine, other days I am exhausted, and it is completely unrelated to how much sleep i’ve got! One in particular on my neck seemed to be growing persistent yeast infection larger, and I then noticed I could actually still feel the persistent yeast infection one in my groin. I’ve also seemed to have slightly tender side of my persistent yeast infection breast, on one particular side, which comes and goes too. I don’t know if this is related.

I finally went to my GP on monday, and she examined me and found some more – another in my neck, one above my collar bone, and another in the other side of my groin. So in total I have 6, that I know of. I’m also convinced another one has swelled up in my persistent yeast infection armpit since I saw her, but I don’t know if this is stress related? The day it felt swollen, the side of my breast on that side was also persistent yeast infection tender to touch (the opposite to where it has previously been sore). I’ve also seemed to have developed a ‘tight chest’ feeling and a chesty cough when I breathe in deeply persistent yeast infection since seeing her, after she pressed down on my stomach and told me persistent yeast infection to inhale/exhale, but then again, maybe its always been there/ is stress related? I’m just noticing it now?

I had a chest x-ray this morning, have a CT scan on my neck in just under persistent yeast infection 2 weeks, and blood tests in about 3 weeks. I feel a bit confused to be honest, I know they’re testing ‘to rule out’ cancer, but what does this actually mean? A specific type of cancer? Any cancer? I don’t really understand the stages of diagnosis, and how likely really is this to be cancer? I don’t think I’ve had any significant weight loss, and I definitely have not had night sweats to the persistent yeast infection point I’ve drenched the sheets, i’ve woken up hotter than usual some nights but that persistent yeast infection could be a whole range of things.

I know lymphoma can cause enlarged lymph nodes – does anyone know if 6 palpable nodes is a bad persistent yeast infection sign? The one in my neck that I had originally noticed persistent yeast infection seems to feel quite hard and doesn’t move, but my GP did say the ones in my groin persistent yeast infection area are movable and so that is more ‘promising’. I’m trying to stay positive but the worry is really persistent yeast infection eating away at me, at a time where i’m trying to write my university dissertation too!

Doctors have a massive tool box of tests backed up persistent yeast infection by years of training. The trouble is that there are few tests that can persistent yeast infection definitively say you’ve got such and such a disease. But rather the tests say that some level of a persistent yeast infection particular protein or hormone is higher or lower than normal, or there’s a mass in this point in the body, or this nervous reaction isn’t what we’d expect from a normal person. Indeed, any of these tests can return negative or normal results. Individually, one test result usually tells the doctor nothing; it’s only when results from multiple tests are combined together persistent yeast infection that the doctor can hazard a diagnosis.

So when faced with a patient whose diagnosis isn’t obvious, the doctor reaches into the toolbag, and pulls out a whole set of tests. Which particular tests are dictated by guidelines and the doctor’s own experience of which tests to run with the persistent yeast infection patient in front of her. And so you suddenly find yourself having multiple blood tests, and maybe imaging such as ultrasound, MRI or CT. Or maybe you’re thrust on a scary two week urgent pathway.

Now, often the first thought in your head is OMG, the doctor thinks I’ve got cancer! I’m going to be dead in a year’s time!! If you then look up the tests on google and persistent yeast infection find that they’re used in cancer diagnostics then your anxiety level really persistent yeast infection ramps up a notch or two. That’s only human, but the reality is that the doctor is simply running persistent yeast infection a series of obvious tests (obvious, if you’re a doctor) and when the results come in, maybe there’ll be enough information to figure what’s wrong with you. Until then, you have an undiagnosed disease.

Sorry to hear this. I am still going through testing, so no unfortunately, but it looks like aggressive lymphomas are ruled out. My cough is still present, and I started to also get pain and actual swelling persistent yeast infection above my left collarbone within consuming a few sips of persistent yeast infection alcohol in april/may, so I convinced myself it was hodgkins. I was told by the drs in wales (I was at uni there) ‘no evidence of lymphoma’ at the end of june. I had swollen lymph nodes in my neck, above collarbone and under my armpit but with the use persistent yeast infection of ultrasound they didn’t think they appeared suspicious. The largest one is 3cm x 1.4cm.

The alcohol pain continued, and one in my neck appeared to grow, so I went for a 2nd opinion back here at persistent yeast infection home. I have had a pet scan, which showed some uptake in my right cervical and collarbone persistent yeast infection nodes, but no where else, so I am having a biopsy to rule out a persistent yeast infection low grade lymphoma (aggressive/hodgkins would have shown higher uptake or ‘lit up’ more on my scan). My uptake was scored at around 3.5, which could be a false positive caused by inflammation, which honestly is the most likely cause.

Anyone else here who may read this and have experience persistent yeast infection of brown fat, is it easy for the radiologist’s to read through? I had uptake in axilla and mediastinum which was deemed persistent yeast infection consistant with brown fat, but it has been playing on my mind a little persistent yeast infection that it may have ‘hidden’ something.

My advice to you, ells2098, is DO NOT google. It drives you insane. Easier said than done, I know, but the chances it is not lymphoma is much greater persistent yeast infection than the chances it is. Google is a dangerous place. I was absolutely convinced I had hodgkins because of my persistent yeast infection alcohol reaction yet the lymph nodes on the side that persistent yeast infection hurts and swells (so much that a lump is visible) didn’t even light up on my scan. It is my assumption that perhaps I have contracted a persistent yeast infection virus which is almost ‘mimicking’ lymphoma, as this can happen too. 3 weeks is not an awfully long time to have persistent yeast infection a swollen node, sometimes we contract viruses and infections which are not detectable persistent yeast infection because our immune system is working well and fighting them persistent yeast infection off. I understand you will be anxious, and you should absolutely push for the right tests, but don’t make my mistake and convince yourself of something before persistent yeast infection there is clear evidence as all it will do is persistent yeast infection raise your stress levels – making you feel ill and possibly experience other symptoms.

Thank you so much for getting back to me so persistent yeast infection quick! I am so sorry to hear you haven’t got a difinitive diagnosis yet, but thats positive that it is not an agressive lymphoma. I really hope that you don’t have hodgkins or any form of lymphoma, and I hope they give you a simple and easily persistent yeast infection treatable answer!

Thank you so much for your advice, I must admit I have been on google way to persistent yeast infection much and is has driven me mad, I have been soooo worried! Today it feels like someone is strangling the left side persistent yeast infection of my neck, and it feels like something is stuck in my throat, it is awful. I rang the doctors and it turns out they never persistent yeast infection sent off my referal to the ENT so that stressed persistent yeast infection me out even more so I have got to wait persistent yeast infection even longer.

In regard to your glandular fever idea, that is something I hadn’t thought of. I got tested for glandular fever last year after a persistent yeast infection horrendous case of tonsiltis but it came back negative, I may possibly have it now, as it is said to take 4-8 weeks for symptoms to show? I will mention that and get a blood test done persistent yeast infection (my worst nightmare lol). Just hoping it is nothing sinister.

Oh no, sorry to hear that. Google is an absolute nightmare, I know the feeling soo well and it really is persistent yeast infection horrendous! But we do it to ourselves unfortunately… You just have to think, IF it is cancer, it will be found. IF it is lymphoma, it is extremely treatable. Don’t let your head run away with you with fear persistent yeast infection as the chances are it isn’t, the drs see so many people with swollen lymph nodes persistent yeast infection all the time and i think its something like 0.4% turns out to be cancer! But if it was, you would get through it and yes it wouldn’t be pleasant but you are much stronger than you persistent yeast infection think.

No they don’t know what, it might potentially be a low grade lymphoma but the persistent yeast infection biopsy will reveal that… I haven’t had it yet. My bloodwork has been fine too, i’ve had so much taken for all sorts of autoimmune persistent yeast infection things etc. I was slightly folate deficient in april and still am persistent yeast infection now but other than that my blood is fine. Did have a very slightly raised ESR in april but persistent yeast infection the gp referred to this as a red herring at persistent yeast infection the time and all my blood tests since have been persistent yeast infection fine. Haemotology will give you all the right tests, they test you for literally everything under the sun, HIV, hepatitis, autoimmune etc. Aswell as checking kidney, liver, LDH levels and so on. They will probably give you a ct scan too.

Try not to worry, less than 1cm isn’t technically enlarged even if you can feel it – I don’t mean to make it sound trivial but I wish persistent yeast infection I had someone telling me all the facts back in persistent yeast infection april! The drs consider my 3cm x 1.4cm one very small, which it really is compared to most lumps which turn persistent yeast infection out to be cancer! But to me it feels huge haha!! If you are slim you are more likely to be persistent yeast infection able to feel them under your skin too, especially in the groin, I can feel loads but they didn’t light up on my pet scan so they are persistent yeast infection fine! Stay away from google, and try not to become worried unless the drs tell persistent yeast infection you to worry! A positive mindset makes all the difference – i’m only just learning this.

I will report back once I have biopsy results, i’m seeing ent for him to book excisional biopsy next persistent yeast infection week, have a FNA week after (don’t know why i’m having 2) and then have an appointment with oncology again at the persistent yeast infection end of september to get the excisional biopsy results… So it will be a while unfortunately!
