What if you have more than 1 swollen lynph node?
« on: May 27, 2014, 01:40:31 PM »
I have had a couple of swollen nodes near my underarm since ovulation 2.5 weeks ago. Since then I have started & stopped my period. There is a couple of swollen, (but not hard), tender if I rub on them, nodes. I have a few on the right side, too. But it's my left side that concerns me. It feels like they may have shrunk in size some since last week.

Everything on here that I have seen is directed at ONE SINGLE node. What if you have more than 1? Can this be caused by a sinus infection or allergies?

Of course my mind is going straight to breast cancer & I cannot stop shaking.

I have more than one palpable node and no BC. The one on the left FEELS enormous, and it even visible to the naked eye. But, u/s shows it to be in the normal size range. I also have a smaller one on the right that I can feel. In my case, I've seen 3 docs over a year and all 3 agree- DON'T WORRY.

I've read a bunch of your posts, and it just seems like you have fibrocystic breasts. Not cancer.

I can't calm myself down.

This wknd I was ok bc I was distracted....no symptoms really. Now that I am back at work, I am a mess all over again.

All I keep seeing is this post I saw on a social media site that says (I won't go into detail out of courtesy) basically any swollen nodes are a death sentence.

I feel so helpless right now.

I want to cry. I want to scream. I want to hug my kids. I want to curl up in a ball & disappear. I want to run away.

I don't know what to do.
I am desperate for some peace of mind.
I am a MESS right now.

I've had plenty of swollen nodes and never a problem.  I went to the doctor with them a few years back, and they said yep, they're swollen, but all my tests were fine.  But they never would go down.  Then I read that even palpating them once a day would keep them swollen, so I kept my hands off of them for a week, and sure enough, they went down.  There's one that's remained a bit bigger and kind of hard, but in all this time there's never been an issue with him and all my others are perfectly normal now.

I think we all should start a swollen lymph node gang, since it's pretty much SO ABUNDANT around here! =]

Does anxiety effect them? Does anyone know?
