Is Pelvic Lymph Node Swelling A Serious Concern When Suffering From Cancer?
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
A pelvic lymph node swelling of 8 mm with all other investigation reports normal is not worrisome. Any lymph node less than 2 cm in size is considered as a reactive lymphadenopathy and usually subsides on its own without any treatment.
Your radiation oncologist is right. There is no need to freak out.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

Can be due to inflammation.
Thanks for writing again.
Diltiazem cream is not likely to cause enlarged lymph node. But a minor inflammation in the area of fissures can cause the enlarged pelvic lymph node.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
