Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Exercises can cause rising LDH.

Another common cause can be lymph node infection --also can raise LDH.

Usually not a malignancy.

However the lymph node can be checked with a FNA biopsy.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
