problem swallowing - JB
Nov 9, 2000

Dear Doctor I am having difficulty swallowing,because of a strange pain on my front neck.My Doctor says there are lymph nodes swollen there,that's why?is this a big problem?

I can't touch lymph nodes,but my Doc says that there are not too big generally at that place so they are only palpable by professionals,e.g Doctors.Any suggestions what to do? will is go away?

thanks

Response from Dr. Bartlett

Lymph nodes commonly become enlarged in persons with HIV infection, and the neck is a place where they usually are found. However, it is very unusual for lymph nodes to be so big that they interfere with swallowing. I would recommend visiting with your health care provider about this issue, and keeping a close eye on them to see if they grow any larger.

John A. Bartlett, M.D.
