    Did the doc tell you hpwhat caused the swollen lymph node. I had medication that had caused the node in my arm pit to swell very painful.,it's different than what you explained. 

    I also havr have THR done and the hip lymph node is swollen and filled with fluid. It doesn't hurt and have that repaired soon.

    google what causes swelling on the shoulder node maybe from an injury.🎅

    Well don't freak out lymph nodes swell for all sorts of reasons but the most common is an infection. Some lymph nodes swell and never really go back to normal they are called shotty lymph nodes. Is it freely moveable or does it feel fixed to something? I also would not be looking online for answers. Google is not your friend when it comes to medical issues. there is a ton of outdated material. If you are really very concerned ask for a biopsy.

      Hi! Well that's good news. Not all infections will show up on blood work. For example if you have a little ingrown hair that could cause a lymph node to swell up and probably wouldn't show on a blood test. They are checking white blood counts and big infections are seen. Freely moveable is a good sign too. The question is how much do you trust your doctor?? If you feel that this is always going to weigh on your mind I would express that to your doctor. Hey doctor I'm having some anxiety over this situation and I feel that the only way I'm going to have peace of mind is if we can investigate this further.. good luck keep us updated!

      Hey no problem! I too suffer from anxiety. I know it all too well. I think if it were me I would push for a biopsy. I would want peace of mind. A biopsy would be the tell all. You would know if it's something to worry about or not. If it is something at least you are catching it now. Good luck to you! Keep me posted!
