I'll just copy your questions and put in my answersDo you have any swollen lymph nodes? If yes:- How many?:
Only counting the ones that are easily felt I'd say 7
. Although one has gone down quite a bit but I'll count that one since it used to be quite big. Overall I'd say I'd had around 15 swollen nodes - Where are they located?:
Again, focusing on the bigger ones. Two in groin (each side). Then one in right armpit and three left armpit. Smaller ones can be felt in groin and upper thigh. Occasionally I find one that's in my neck, but it's not there now.- How big are they?:
Wasn't told the definite numbers from an ultra sound. I'd say the biggest, the one in my right armpit, is about 2cm on the short axis. My nodes haven't been measured on the long axis. Others are 1cm and under.- How long have the nodes been swollen?:
SIX YEARS! Yes, I said SIX YEARS! Are the nodes the following:- Hard?:
Sort of- Soft?:
Sort of - Rubbery?:
Not sure actually :/- Moveable?:
Yes, somewhat.- Tender or painless?:
Painless, although some have been painful at some point.Do you have night sweats?
No - although I have over these six years woken up three or four times sweaty, on two occasions drenched. But that is apparently not enough to be lymphoma related. Do you have fever?
NoDo you have chills?
Eh rarely........wait....is that a symptom?Do you lose weight?
No not really...I rock up and down actually. Gained a bit over the past few weeks.Do you have abdominal pain?
No nothing that hasn't cleared up the next dayDo you have neck pain?
Eh...sure. On and off...but it's muscle related.Do you have itchiness?
Yes, I sometimes get it on my feet. Which sometimes worries me because that is lymphoma symptoms but it stops after I put some ointment on it.What other symptoms than the ones above do you have?:
Runny nose is the most consistent, I guess. I did have some fairly nasty pains in my legs and other extremities, really thought something sinister was in my bones. That is mostly gone now though.Have you seen a doctor? If yes, what kind of testing have you had?
Oh I've seen plenty of doctors, including a hematologist several times. I've had blood tests and ultrasounds and of course the lymph node exams. Nothing..........Were the doctors worried? What did they tell you about your situation and/or the tests you had done?
Nope! No one has been worried or pushed for any tests. Back in 2007 I had several tests done and it was concluded I had suffered from some viral infection. Your story from when the lymphoma fear started and until now.
Oh blimey! You could just look up my endless posts about the subject
But OK I'll give it a go
So like I said I've had swollen lymph nodes for six years. I didn't actually worry about from 2007 til about November 2011 when I noticed I was feeling tired in the middle of the day. I don't know...something just clicked in my head. Then I found new swellings in early December that year. That kinda started everything.
Can't really be bothered to go into every detail again. Sorry lolAnything to add?
