Are you there?
OB GYN Doctor: DocPhilMD, Doctor replied 2 months ago

Ok.

This lymph node is just related to the inflammation from the gland

It should resolve in a the course of 1-2 weeks

If it doesn't, you can have an ultrasound but I'm highly confident it will

warm compresses can help

Why would the fluid have been dark brown? Its never been before
OB GYN Doctor: DocPhilMD, Doctor replied 2 months ago

If there is some old blood in the gland it will be dark brown

it is not cancer or anything like that

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.
