Brief Answer:
How big are these lymph nodes?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this nodes that you have reported. I will like to know what the size of these nodes are. Nodes are often palpable but the size is what makes the difference. If they are bigger than 1cm, only at that time are we worried. How often do you get this feeling of fullness? Is this related to your periods? Are there any urinary changes or difficulties when you get these feelings of fullness? With these added details, I will be able to provide more insights.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be. Above all, thanks for using our services.

Brief Answer:
NO possibility for this being a lymphoma!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Lymphoma are bigger in size and clearly would appear around the neck before ever getting to the groin. For sure it is not.

I wish you well.

Brief Answer:
Very very unlikely

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

this is very unlikely and certainly not of such a very small dimension. I will suggest you really calm down and don't get scared by an almost impossible fortuitous finding of this lymph node. besides, is there any special reason why you are concerned about possible lymphoma besides this lymph node finding?

thanks and wish you well.

Brief Answer:
Please, Google causes more panics than calms!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

That’s a NONONONONO. Google fails to place findings in context and that is the advantage our service offers. Be calm and relaxed and forget about all these generic write-ups with no regard to you as an individual.

I wish you well.
