Hi, my name is***** and I will be assisting you today.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

Lymphadenopathy usually does not result in lymphedema. Lymphedema is usually due to surgery. Specifically, surgery that removes the lymph nodes in the region, which is often done for cancer surgery, can cause the flow of lymph to slow down resulting in lymphedema. For example, when we remove the lymph nodes in the neck as part of the treatment for a head and neck cancer patients will often develop lymphedema in the neck. However, lymphadenopathy is usually not the cause. I hope that was helpful.

This is my first time using my computer for medical questions. You've answered my question to my complete satisfaction and now I fell relieved because my low Serotonin, luckily was unusual news to me and I know I can't be without this very important hormone. Thank you ever so much,

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
