Swollen Lymph Node question
      #6084 - 06/23/00 01:27 PM

Greetings! This is a follow-up from a previous post. I wish to draw on the vast experiences of those on this board. After 2 exposures in March, I noticed neck swelling the middle of May. It's still there. The Dr first said swollen posterior cervical node. A few weeks ago dr ordered a CT scan. Now dr says it's not a node, but "abnormal swelling of soft tissue". It's about the size of a walnut. Just below it, 2 weeks apart, a small red area with a pimple in the middle appeared, each lasted about a couple of days. Dr says that's what caused the swelling, but I've also had one on each arm, at different times. I visited dr because of a bad bout of vertigo, which dr said was viral and will go away. Never had that before. Dr reluctant to do test, but I took it anyway, results next week. The exposure most concerned about is with middle finger, and the next morning skin was pulled back above the nail and it burned - small exposed area. Could someone provide some insight as to this node diagnosis? Sounds kind of strange. Thanks to you all.
