Lymph nodes are part of the immunity and it is normal for them to enlarge when your system is fighting an infection.
If you had lymphoma, it would show up in a regular CBC blood test (the initial signs would be there)
What other symptoms do you have?
I am wondering if you see my reply. I am in chat mode, is that what you prefer?
I will switch to Q&A, since I see your last question was in that form.
I started headache few days ago. Yesterday my headache was the strongest; then I measured my temperature was 37.9 to 38.4
A week ago, I found a hard lump on left neck, sore when touch.
No other symptoms at all.
Last night I went to the Ottawa Queensway Carleton Hospital. The doctor hooked me up with saline, checked my urine, blood, x-ray of chest, scanned brain to see any possible bleeding. The result is “no bacteria”, so no need for anti-biotic.
The doctor said it was a virus, “can be any virus, there are too many (hundreds) of virus to test, we don’t test for it at all, and there is nothing you can do for it, that’s why we don’t test for it.”
She let me took 3 tablets of Tylenol and the fever was gone within few hours. She said the fever could take up to 72 hours.
Today I rest at home, my body temperature was 37.2 to 37.3 degree, without Tylenol.
size of my thumb fingernail, it is hard lump. Sore when touch. The hospital checked my urine and blood last night and the doctor say they were normal, no need for anti-biotic.
Is it possible a type of common cold virus?
The Tylenol will cure headache and fever, but not virus. Does taking Tylenol reduce my ability to build immune system and cure the virus?
So the only way to kill virus is rest at home, drink more water?
