Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
This report most likely is indicating that you have multiple enlarged lymph nodes
and what does that mean?
Lymph nodes are usually enlarged due to infection.
Lymph nodes are normally present in our body and protect our body against various things like infections.
could they be cancerous?
If they are enlarged it usually indicates that you could have had an infection in the recent past.
any idea what kind of infection could cause this?
Cancer is a possibility but seems unlikely because of the character of the lymph nodes mentioned in the CT scan.
ok. thats good.
We cannot say what kind of infection on a CT scan
All these things are going to be confirmed in a lymph node biopsy.
so they will need to do a biopsy?
Either a needle biopsy or an excisional biopsy in which they take out the whole lymph node.
ok. since the CT scan it has grown and i now have one on my neck as well.
I would not worry at the moment.
Just relax and wait for a biopsy to be done.
A biopsy will let us know for sure whats going on.
I am very hopeful that this is nothing serious.
Any more questions?
what are the chances it is serious?
Chances of it being serious are less.
I can't say percentage-wise.
But most likely it will be something harmless like an infection.
could this be related to a STD.
harmless meaning not cancer.
Unlikely to be related to STD because of their location.
ok... then i'll keep my boyfriend lol.
