What Causes Swollen Lymph Nodes In Neck Post Thyroidectomy?
this can be side effect of XXXXXXX therapy
Thanks for following up.
Swelling of neck and lymph glands after XXXXXXX suggest inflammation of neck glands due to uptake of radioidoine in those glands. This should subside in few days. Symptomatic treatment like analgesics are usually enough.
This has got nothing to do with cancer in the nodes. This can occur even without any cancer cells in the glands. This is a type of hypersensitivity reaction (loosely, allergy).
Hope this helps.
Thank you again.
