I have had swollen lymph nodes behind my ears since Christmas. After having blood work, (which all came back normal) I had one node behind each ear biopsied on Feb 6th. The results came back normal. Diagnosis....reactive node, I guess. However, what are they reacting to?? There was no cancer, no infection, no illness..so why are they swollen in the first place? I still have one node that is swollen (pea size) behind one ear. My incisions had been infected after surgury, but that particular node was swollen before surgury. I am still wondering if the other one could be caused by cancer even though the ones 1 cm away were biopsied to be fine? I am driving my husband crazy with all of the worrying, but I can't get over the fact that even the Dr has yet to answer my question as to why they are swollen? Sorry to ramble. Thanks for any info.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
