Question: Guidance?

 Marione - Tue Apr 12, 2005 7:19 am


I'm 24 and about eight months ago I noticed I had a swollen lymph node in my right groin - I never got it checked until two months ago when I noticed that my left node had swollen also. I have been to the doctors twice in the past month and both times neither of them were concerned. I'm told my blood work is fine and that the size and texture of my lymph nodes are nothing to worry about. The past two weeks I have been feeling pain in both sides of my chest. The pain is sharp and quick, something I can usually just rub out. I've also been feeling a very crampy and tight feeling in my upper left abdomen. Is this something I should go back to the doctor's about? Otherwise, my health has been fine.

    Dear Marione,

    I suggest you ask your GP for a chest x-ray, abdominal Ultra sound ,serum LDH and an ECG. Those can answer a lot of questions for you. and you can check if you have other lymph nodes elsewhere, Like in your axilla(under your armpits) your neck and behind your clavicles, ok?

    lymph nodes in the groin can be non specific...especially when they are small and feeling soft.
    Best regards,
