question 4 u

May 6, 1999

hi doctor, i have a question. i read on your forum that there are nodes behind ones knees. do you mean in the back of the legs? do you mean behind the legs, in the back?? where the crease of the leg is or above ? OR are you talking about in the front of the legs? BEhind the back of my legs i feel small (very small) glands (thats what it feels like. Is that normal or being able to feel this is abnormal?? they are felt above the crease of my leg over the vein. any comments on that? it confuses me because i dont know if they are considered swollen just because i fele them there or if they have to be large to be considered swollen. thank you so much dr.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

In the back of the legs, in the creases behind the knees, and everywhere else in your body. Many can be felt and many can not. MH
