Swollen Lymph Nodes

I had a TVH-SBO about 1 year ago for stage 1 cervical cancer. Since then, periodically the lymph nodes under my arms become sore and ache. I've seen my dr a couple of times for this, and she did some standard blood tests, but not the CA125. She said all tests were normal and not to worry. She thought it was clogged sweat glands. Should I trust this? I also suffer from cancerhead!

Swollen Lymph Nodes

hi, I have not logged in a long time, but here it goes. I was very ill around the time of my cervcial cancer. I had these lumps (i will refer to them as lumps) in my left arm pit. I had incredible pain, sharp stabbing, shooting pain, night sweats, trembling, and flu like symptoms. The gyn oncologist that was handling my cervical cancer (same as yours) sent me to the breast oncologist immediately. It turned out that I had three lymph nodes that were an inch to an inch and a half in size. That is BIG! They flipped out.!!! They were hyperplasia with one cancerous. To this day, they expected to find another tumor in the left quadrant of my body (chest. breast or otherwise) but did not. So, they removed them when they did my hyst and left groin lymphectomy. Needless to say, the night tremors, and armpit pain and flulike symptoms went away. I have yet to have any of my oncologists be able to explain any kind of corelation between the two circumstances. But the timing was more then coincindental, and I was very much bed ridden from this. It was hard.
So, if they are making you sick (if you think they are) and they hurt, have your onc order an ultrasound and mammogram of your axilliary area. You are already there (at the oncologists anyhow) convince him that you are CONCERNED. I just have NEVER heard of ANYONE ELSE but you complain of this, I am very interested in hearing back from you about what you find out. Please take care and be proactive. It is your body and they are there to be your doctors for YOU. Hope you get to the bottom of it. Prayers and thoughts with you, Leslie

Swollen Lymph Nodes

Hi, I agree with Leslie's advise and if your oncologist will do nothing more, you can always seek a second opinion. BTW my CA 125 test was normal, then a D&C indicated "possible" cancer and in fact endo cancer was found.
I also am suffering from occasional cancerhead and, for example, any lymph glands swelling (even those in my neck which are so common in colds, allergies) make me think it could be the nasty C raising its head again. Let us know how you do.
Blessings and s peggiesue
