i am a 37 year old woman and i have spent countless hours in the waiting rooms of numerous doctors and in the ER. i had a hysterectomy at 30 and since have had swelling of my left leg and foot and in my throat almost everyday. my most recent ultasound showed swollen lymph nodes and blood work shows an infection but im told they dont know where from because all my test and screenings show all normal. my throat is always swollen and hoarsness on and off, i do have my tonsils and i always keep asking could that be the problem? dr always says maybe but i dont think so. at the ER i was told by dr i have lymphopathy of the lymph nodes. what does that mean? i do know thats my immune system and that is what fights infection. i get told i could have cancer and to follow up with my primary and streeted end of it with more questions than answers. please i dont know what to ask or do anymore....

  • To say you have lymphopathy is nothing more than saying you have something wrong with your lymph system. Usually swelling / inflammation. The lymph system clears out all the rubbish from your body. It's a bit like a sewer system. Hence it's one of the first places the body checks for infection. If an infection takes root actually in the lymph system it can go crazy responding to it. Cancer can do that to. Also it could be auto imune. An immune reaction that maybe started legitimately but ran out of control. Ether way they need to take histoological samples straight from your lymph nodes to look for nastys in them. This is not medical advice blah blah blah.Hope you get some price of mind soon.
