: I am a 25 year old woman. In April of 1999 I gave birth to a beautiful son. My pregnancy and labor were uneventfull except for contracting chicken pox in the early stages of my pregnancy. Right after I gave birth every lymph node in my body swelled up, I also battle chronic fatigue, and numerous secondary infections (Urinary, strep, etc.). After six months of these symptoms a rash appeared on my scalp. They are small circle, yet uneven on the edges. Somewhat raised. Clear around the edges yet brown, red, black in the middle. In the past month I have lost over 10lbs. I have been seeing an oncologists at Mass General. He has been wonderful and supportive. They tested me for everything form Aids to Lupus. He ended up removing my lymph node over a month ago. It showed an infection. After the removal I felt great. A week ago the site became infected. He drained the fluid, put me on anti biotics and I am waiting for the test results of the drained fluid. I am begging anyone out there to please e-mail me if you have ever heard of a similar case. At this point they only know that my lymphatic system is responding to something, but they don't know what. Feel free to e-mail me. Thank you very much. Riah G
I totally understand what your going through i too have these nodes on my scalp.They seem to go away after they drain these are also sore.I also have one behind my ear and just below below the ear behind the jaw which i have a ct-scan to confirm that this was a swollen lymph node.but those two don't seem to hurt.My doctor says everything looks benign.But until they remove them i wont know and i don't go back until the end of summer. so try not to worry to much. and let me know what your test results are.GOOD LUCK AND GOD BLESS.VIKI
