I have a small nodule on my thyroid that i get looked at yearly. its 9mm and is of no concern. I have always had large lymph nodes in my neck, and doctors have never seemed concerned with them and i have never known the exact size... until recently.
i have a new doctor.
When i went to get my yearly thyroid ultrasound, it showed that i have large nodes the size of 3.8cm!!!! i wish he never told me the size, because i have lived my life just fine knowing that i just have large nodes.... until now. 3.8cm is ridiculously big!
Google is my enemy, and now i think i have something thats gonna kill me. Im not looking to die yet!
anywho, he has requested that i get a head and neck CT so he can get a better look at all my lymph nodes. im just waiting to hear from the department to schedule the appointment.
What will the head and neck CT show?
i just recently had my CBC done as well as a bunch of other routine blood tests and ever single one came back in the normal range.
i constantly have sinus issues;its been many years of it. (stuffy nose and boogers, occassional bloody nose if i blow too hard... i live in the mountains where its dry.... i just assumed this was the culprit)
i will definitely update everyone once i get the results of the CT, but i just wondered if anyone else has had this large of a cervical lymph node and it be nothing? Remind you: ive had them like this for YEARS 10+ years.
3.8cm cervical lymph node, painless, moveable, i cant tell the consistency of it, i dont know if its rubbery or not. when i push on it, it moves around.
