I am so frusterated and this has been eating at me. I hope someone can help me! I am one of those people who google symptoms and when I hear the worst I have it. I need to stop. I am 22 yrs old and 8 months pregnant I cant stress anymore!
About 2 years ago I had 2 lymph nodes on either side of my groin inflame quite large and they were very painful. Thankfully the pain and swelling subsided. I didn't think anything of it as I was 20 years old and I had no idea what lymph nodes were. The pain and swelling went down significantly to about 1 to 1.5 cm on each side. id say the size of my pinkie finger. They are soft and moveable. I brought it up to my doctor and she had no concern for them. When I asked her to check it out turns out I had a bladder infection but as i recall I believe I had it for quite some time as i remember having these symptoms for a while - strong urine smell. She only gave me 5 days of ammoxacillin and the nodes shrunk a little bit but 4 months later i can still feel them! She still does not seemed concerned about them. I have had no other symptoms. Does anything think this could be lymphoma i am so scared. I cant be stressing as I am 8 months pregnant. I am going to a new doctor on monday but does this sound concerning?
Nodes that shrink with anti-biotics are not usually cancerous AFAIK. Most likely they are swelling due to that UTI. But you may want to ask about auto-immune disorders too at your next checkup.
Meantime, try to relax enjoy your last month of no baby. It is stressful enough dealing with a newborn and the schedule upheaval that entails (I should know - we're expecting #4 in about a month ourselves).
