Hello Todd, I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.What is the size of lump?Is it painful, tender?Can you move it all around?When did you notice it?
The lump seems to be small. I can't feel it if I touch my chin to my chest or lean my head all the way back. It does move around, but only very slightly. I noticed it this morning.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using Just Answer.
I do have a few other enlarged nodes in my neck. None were larger than 1 cm on a ct scan from a few weeks ago. I had one biopsied last week with a fine needle and it came back benign. CT scan of my abdomen was clear. No node enlargement. Blood work was good.
I originally noticed the other nodes with a sinus infection the first week of May. Just noticed the one on the nape of the neck today. Glad I got the benign needle biopsy, but was concerned when finding the nape of the neck node today.
Should I be concerned? The sinus infection was 6-7 weeks ago.
Got it. Do you think that these could take months to go back to normal then?
Ok, I'll stop touching. Final question and then I'll be done. Will the node that I got the needle biopsy be slower to go down because of the biopsy?
