My 24 Year old son has had mono, cmv, and other viral infections of the throat for the past year. His tonsils are very large and the lymph glands in his neck are swollen. He has lost 20 pounds and has had boughts of throwing up as well. This week he found a lump deep in his upper leg. He was referred to an infectious disease dr but the dr said he could not do anything until his throat has another infection and then cultures can be done. I am worried about lymphoma. Is this a possibility?

The lymph gland on the right side of my neck is swollen.........approximately 1 week now. I have taken Doxycycline for 4 days. I went to my physician with a mild sore throat and difficulty swallowing and he said I had a virus. Feeling very tired. Having pain in my right ear (I do have Meniere s disease). My ears were clear at the physician office. I had mono at the age of 35, but both sides of my neck were swollen at that time. I recently just had shingles, a mild case. Could there be any correlation between these 2 viruses? When the mono virus is present, can the lymph nodes on just one side of your neck be swollen? I feel the same way as I did when I had mono several years ago. The gland is slightly smaller now, but still palpable and causing some difficulty swallowing. I am 55 years old now. I had a recent small CVA due to a clot passing through a large PFO in my heart which I had repaired 9 months ago. I feel since then, my immune system has been altered, if that is possible. I seem to get sick so easily whenever I am exposed to someone who is ill. I am a nurse, but recently received my disability due to vasodepressor syncope and the effects of the CVA. Could this be mono? Also, what can I do to boost my immune system?

Hi im 26 year old female i have had swollen lymph glands in my neck for 1 year to my knowledge. I have been to the doctors had antibiotics ans they havent reduced in size the doctor just said some people do have enlarged glands and sent me away. Now i am concerned 1 year later and they are still here and ive been looking online and i am very worried about lymphoma so i went back to the doctors and they did a cbc which came back normal, a chest xray which was normal and i saw an ent specialist who wasnt concerned but he sent me for an us of the neck for my own piece of mind. I had the ultrasound and the doctor said there were several but they were all within the range they could be and they didnt look abnormal in shape etc he said if i had lost weight etc then he would of sent me for more tests but he said he doesnt think its necessary now i am not happy with what they have said what can i do?
