Bleeding from Lymph node due to inflammation.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for the query.
Bleeding from swollen Lymph node seen in the USG is mostly due to increase inflammation.
Swollen neck lymph node mostly seen after repeated common cold & cough , ENT infection , lymphoma , head neck infection & cancer & in XXXXXXX due to tuberculosis.
To find out the cause for your lymph node swelling & bleeding inside Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of lymph node needed .Should be done by expert . I think you have done USG Neck. What is its interpretation ?
If this swollen lymph nodes is because of repeated cold & cough , you will need Macrolide antibiotic & anti inflammatory analgesic Paracetemol + Ibuprofen combination .
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
