Welcome to Healthcare Magic ,
thanks for your query ,
As far as your question is concerned to me its a reactive lymph node , let me brief you about this condition a few words :
1. Enlarged and generally asymptomatic lymph nodes often occur in the head and neck or inguinal areas and are common.
2. Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) is a rapid and relatively noninvasive method for investigating persistent lymphadenopathy
and may distinguish a benign from a malignant process, thus dictating the next step for management.
3. There is no specific treatment for swollen lymph nodes
. Generally, the underlying cause needs to be treated, which may result in the resolution of the swollen lymph node.
4. Treating an infection causing the swollen lymph node, for example, will result in the lymph node swelling to subside. If the swollen lymph node is due to a cancer of the lymph node (lymphoma
), then the swelling will shrink after treating the lymphoma.
Now in your condition to me its reactive lymphnode as i had said earlier , now what you should do next ? visit a cytopathologist and go for a fine needle aspiration cytology this is a simple procedure minimally painful rapid for diagnosis , easy , cheap method compared to other tests , so go ahead and you will get your doubts cleared and management will be accordingly in treating the underlying cause .
