Re: do swollen lymphatic nodes hurt when they are cancerous

Hi.
You know, I've heard both...
But, mine did not hurt. I think I poked it (collarbone node) so much, that I aggravated it and "made" it start hurting.
The best thing to do, is consult a doctor.
It will set your mind at ease.
Good luck.

Generally speaking, lymphoma causes painless enlargement of the lymph nodes. Pain can arise from the enlarged node pressing on other organs, or nerves though. I experienced abdominal and back pain, but that was due to the lymph nodes in my abdomen squeezing and blocking my intestines, rather than the nodes themselves hurting.

swollen lymph nodes DO hurt even when it is not cancer. I had non Hodgekins in my neck and I had a pain in my neck on the same side. After all my chemo and radiation, my lymph nodes are swollen and sore. It is getting better tho. and I'm cancer free.

mine did, that's why the doc didn't think it was lymphoma.
