hi there,
i wonder if anyone can help me with this. I have two hard swollen lymph nodes in my neck, one on the right hand side on the side of my neck and a much larger one on the left lower down towards my sholder/collar bone. they have been like this for about 2 weeks and are alittle tender and achy.
i also have Crohn's Disease and am currently on steroids and immuno suppresants although the lymph gland swelling i noticed before i started on the immunosuppresant (about 2 weeks ago like i say)
any advice as to whatmay be causing this would be greatfully recieved !:)

  • Hi, just thought I'd say, my mom has very similar symptoms to yourself. She has swollen lymph nodes in one side of her neck. She also has lots of skin problems and has been on steriods. She is currently having some blood tests done which will probably be followed by a biopsy. I hope this helps you, in case you havn't been to the doctor as I think you should. From, S.

  • having swollen lymph nodes just simply means your body is either fighting off a bacterial or viral infection. The doctors say you should not worry unless they last for longer tahn 6 weeks. I have them myself and am waiting to see if they go down by March the 1st, if not then I go in for a biopsy.
