my 7 year old daughter has had huge swollen lymph node on the side of her neck for over 2 years. she has been seeing a ears, nose and throat doctor, they did a ct scan and x-rays on it, and he decided that it needed to surgically removed since it was not going down in size, while she was in surgery in october 2009, he said that when he cut into it, it started bleeding, and that it was full of blood. what is it and how did the miss they miss that in the ct scan and x-ray. just a few weeks ago i had to take her to the childrens hospital to see a specialists and he did an ultrasound on it and said he thinks they can do an injection to help it go down, what is that?

  • My daughter is 19 and since she was 17, she has had the same thing. We had a leak in our house the summer before her senior year. It was supposed to be fixed while we were on vacation. We came home and they hadn't fixed it. The house was closed up and it smelled liked rotting fruit. They finally cleaned the carpets. 2wks. later she had 3 lumps that got larger. We moved and cleaned the carpets again, then I had 2 knots that got worse and have never gone away to this day. She was sent to a general surgeon and he had her take Ibuprophen for a month and it didn't go down. He told us it wasn't uncommon in teeage girls, but I am a 44 yr. old woman. My PCP has run all kinds of blood tests and cannot figure it out. Both of ours hurt and you can see them from 6 ft. away. I feel helpless because she is now in college and has unexplained fevers and pain. We didn't even get as far as you. I even enqired about having a CT,MRI or a biopsy done, but they feel it isn't necessary in either of our cases. I hope your little girls doctor is more concerned than our doctors or the specialists we have seen. my 7 year old daughter has had huge swollen lymph node on the side of her neck for over 2 years. she has been seeing a ears, nose and throat doctor, they did a ct scan and x-rays on it, and he decided that it needed to surgically removed since it was not going down in size, while she was in surgery in october 2009, he said that when he cut into it, it started bleeding, and that it was full of blood. what is it and how did the miss they miss that in the ct scan and x-ray. just a few weeks ago i had to take her to the childrens hospital to see a specialists and he did an ultrasound on it and said he thinks they can do an injection to help it go down, what is that?
