Examination of the lymph nodes - Clinical examination | Δ AMBOSS
 
05:53
Examination of the lymph nodes A thorough clinical examination should usually include both a systematic inspection and palpation of the clinically relevant lymph node stations. The most important stations are - the head and neck area - the axilla - and the inguinal area Consequently, the lymph nodes are usually examined from cranial to caudal. Around one third of all lymph nodes are located in the head and neck area, where they can be found superficially and are therefore easily palpable. The following lymph nodes should be included in every palpation: - suboccipital - retro- and preauricular - submandibular - submental - posterior triangle of the neck and those in the area of the internal jugular vein, which lie deep within the neck and may be palpated ventral or dorsal to the sternocleidomastoid muscle. Additionally, the supraclavicular lymph nodes should be palpated as well, since enlargement of these lymph nodes is often associated with malignancies. Abdominal tumors that metastasize via the lymphatic system, such as gastric cancer, will often result in an enlarged Virchow node in the left supraclavicular fossa. Carefully palpate the individual lymph node stations. To facilitate differentiation between lymph nodes and muscles, the area that is palpated should be as relaxed as possible. Every palpable lymph node is considered enlarged. If there is enlargement, pay attention to consistency, tenderness, mobility, the number of enlarged lymph nodes and any erythema in the affected area. Multiple, fused lymph nodes are referred to as conglomerates and are highly suspicious for malignancy. After palpating the head and neck, continue by examining the axillary lymph nodes, which can be divided into different groups as well. The pectoral or anterior group is located in the anterior axillary fold and is responsible for the majority of lymphatic drainage of the chest and chest wall. The subscapular or posterior lymph node group is palpable deep within the posterior axillary fold. It drains parts of the arms and the chest wall. The brachial or lateral lymph nodes drain the majority of the arms and can be palpated in the area of the proximal humerus. All of the lymph node groups just mentioned then drain into the central group, which is palpable at the base of the axilla. The subclavicular or apical group represents the last lymph node station before the lymphatic vessels drain into the venous system. This group should be examined together with the cervical or axillary lymph nodes. In this patient, the examiner starts by palpating the pectoral group, behind the lateral aspect of the pectoralis major muscle. Afterwards, he palpates the central group, followed by the posterior group in the area of the posterior axillary fold and the brachial group of the upper arm. Distinguishing between lymph nodes and surrounding muscles is best achieved when the arm is relaxed and lowered. Afterwards, the superficial lymph nodes of the inguinal area should be palpated. They are divided into a horizontal and a vertical group. The horizontal group lies below the inguinal ligament and can therefore be palpated parallel to its course. This group is responsible for draining parts of the external genitalia, trunk and lower back. The vertical group is located adjacent to the great proximal saphenous vein and drains lymphatic fluid from the lower extremity. Examination of the inguinal lymph nodes is best performed with the patient lying down. As a lymphatic organ, the spleen should always be part of the lymph node assessment since splenomegaly can hint at a systemic inflammatory or malignant illness. The spleen is generally not palpable in healthy adults. A pathologically enlarged spleen is palpated under the left costal margin during inspiration as the inferior edge descends to the examiner’s fingertips.If an enlarged spleen is already suspected, palpation should begin further down. The examination may be facilitated by gently lifting the left flank of the patient ventrally.

Axilary Lymph Node Biopsy and Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy For Breast Cancer - Lazoi.com
 
01:30
An axillary lymph node Biopsy is surgical procedure to remove lymph nodes from the armpit (underarm). The lymph nodes in the armpit are called axillary lymph nodes (underarm lumps). An axillary lymph node Biopsy is also called axillary dissection, axillary node dissection or axillary lymphadenectomy. Breast Sentinel Biopsy involves removing the first lymph node (or nodes) in the armpit to which cancer cells are likely to spread from the breast. It’s essential that sentinel node biopsy is done by a surgeon who is trained and experienced in this method. Sentinel node biopsy is usually done during breast surgery (Surgery to remove breast cancer). Sometimes it may be performed as a separate procedure. The length of time it takes to do sentinel node biopsy varies for individual women. A lymph node biopsy removes lymph node tissue to be looked at under a microscope for signs of infection or a disease, such as cancer. Other tests may also be used to check the lymph tissue sample, including a culture, genetic tests, or tests to study the body's immune system. Lymph nodes are part of the immune system. They are found in the neck, behind the ears, in the armpits glands, and in the chest, belly, and groin. To remove these lumps, lump node biopsy surgery is used. Lumpectomy or lumpectomy surgery for breast cancer is surgery to remove cancer or other abnormal tissue from your breast. Lumpectomy is also called breast conserving surgery or wide local excision because unlike a mastectomy, only a portion of the breast is removed. Doctors may also refer to Breast cancer lumpectomy as an excisional biopsy. Symptoms of breast lump • you discover a new lump • an area of your breast is noticeably different than the rest • a lump does not go away after menstruation • a lump changes or grows larger • your breast is bruised for no apparent reason • the skin of your breast is red or begins to pucker like an orange peel • you have an inverted nipple (if it was not always inverted) • you notice bloody discharge from the nipple Treatment of breast lump If the lump is found to be breast cancer, treatment can include: • lumpectomy, or removing the lump • mastectomy, which refers to removing your breast tissue • chemotherapy, which uses drugs to fight or destroy the cancer • radiation treatment for breast cancer, a treatment that uses radioactive rays or materials to fight the cancer Breast lump removal is surgery to remove a lump that present breast cancer. Tissue around the lump is also removed. This surgery is called a lumpectomy. When a noncancerous tumor such as a fibroadenoma of the breast is removed, it is often called an excisional breast biopsy, instead of a lumpectomy. There are two types of breast cancer surgery: Breast conserving surgery (also called a lumpectomy (used for breast cancer treatment), quadrantectomy, partial mastectomy, or segmental mastectomy) – in which only the part of the breast containing the cancer is removed. How lymph node biopsy surgery performed The sentinel node is then checked for the presence of cancer cells by a pathologist. If cancer is found, the surgeon may remove additional lymph nodes, either during the same biopsy procedure or during a follow-up surgical procedure. SLNBs may be done on an outpatient basis or may require a short stay in the hospital.

How to Check Lymph Nodes | Swollen Glands Symptoms and Signs | Find Your Lymph Nodes Easily
 
06:24
=================================================== PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO OUR CHANNEL https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHvQAZwnttxiDiqE3Xpi-eA?sub_confirmation=1 =================================================== How to Check Lymph Nodes The lymphatic system is composed of small round glands (or nodes) made up of lymphatic tissue. Lymph nodes are critical to the body's immune response, and they commonly swell in reaction to infection and other causes. If you notice that your lymph nodes are swollen, it's a good idea to go to the doctor. Being able to check your lymph nodes yourself may help you detect any problems early on. Method 1 : Checking Your Lymph Nodes 1.Know where the lymph nodes are located. You have the highest concentration of lymph nodes in your neck, around your collarbone, in your armpits, and in your groin. 2.Hold your first 3 fingers together. You'll use the pads of your fingers to lightly press the different surface areas of your body where lymph nodes are located. 3.Check the lymph nodes on your neck and collarbone. 4.Move your fingers to the crease where your thigh meets your pelvis. Method 2 : Knowing When to See a Doctor 1.Monitor the swollen lymph nodes. Sometimes lymph nodes swell in reaction to an allergy, but if that's the case they'll usually return to normal within a few days. 2.Determine what other symptoms are present. Swollen lymph nodes could be a sign that your body's immune system is fighting off a serious illness. 3.Receive a diagnosis. When you go to the doctor, you'll be tested for the most common illnesses that cause lymph nodes to swell, and your doctor will devise a suitable treatment plan. How to Check Lymph Nodes.

Breast Cancer Axillary Ultrasound: Find involved nodes
 
08:41
We teach you how a simple ultrasound of your axillary lymph nodes can tell you more about your breast cancer and expand your treatment options. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ __ Questions for your Breast Surgeon: 1. Will you ultrasound my axillary lymph nodes today? 2. If not, will you order an axillary ultrasound by a radiologist? 3. Would my treatment change if we found cancer in my axillary nodes? 4. What are the benefits of Neoadjuvant Chemo? 5. Why is Neoadjuvant Chemo recommended more now? 6. Why ultrasound my axillary lymph nodes before surgery? At diagnosis, one third of patients already have cancer in the lymph nodes under their arm (axilla). When the “Axillary Lymph Nodes” are involved with breast cancer your cancer is more threatening one. This information can dramatically change your treatment options. Studies have shown that “positive” axillary lymph nodes are commonly missed by your breast surgeon’s physical examination. A 5-minute ultrasound of your axilla can more accurately find cancer in these nodes. A pre-operative axillary ultrasound is a “cutting edge” advance in breast cancer care. Make sure to ask your breast surgeon about an axillary ultrasound when they are examining you. Many large cancer centers routinely utilize pre-operative axillary ultrasounds. How can this change my treatment plan? If an obviously abnormal node is found before surgery, then you have a more serious cancer. If appropriate, an ultrasound guided needle biopsy can be performed to confirm the node is involved with cancer. If you have cancer in your nodes, you will likely require chemotherapy either before (neoadjuvant chemotherapy) or after surgery (adjuvant chemotherapy). Regardless of the findings of an axillary ultrasound, a surgical evaluation of your axillary lymph nodes will be needed when you undergo a definitive breast cancer surgery. The surgical procedures used today for lymph nodes are a “sentinel node biopsy” or an “axillary dissection.” What are the benefits of knowing you have involved nodes? Knowing you have “node positive” breast cancer before surgery can empower your breast cancer team to search for more sophisticated treatment options. A simple axillary ultrasound for early stage breast cancer identifies more “node positive” patients. If you are found early in your journey to have node positive breast cancer, more  pre-operative treatment options may be considered. We list some of the treatment benefits below. Multidisciplinary Cancer Team Lymph node “positive” breast cancer requires a more sophisticated treatment approach. An axillary ultrasound can help determine if you would benefit from a “multidisciplinary team” approach early on in your care, before surgery. Ask your breast specialists to present your unique cancer situation to their team so you will benefit from new ideas and cutting-edge treatment advances. Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy When you know you have involved lymph nodes at diagnosis, you likely will be offered chemotherapy at some point in your treatment. There can be distinct advantages to having chemotherapy before surgery, rather than afterwards. This is known as neoadjuvant chemotherapy. This complex decision is worth discussing with your breast surgeon. Breast surgeons choose the initial direction of your entire breast cancer treatment plan. An axillary ultrasound can better identify if you are a candidate for neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Take our lesson on “Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy” to learn more about the potential benefits of this treatment approach.

Swollen lymph nodes (lymphadenopathy) are common. Cancer and infection can be causes for lymph node enlargement or inflammation (felt as pain). This can occur in the cervical (neck), epitrochlear (elbow), axillary (arm pit), and inguinal (groin) areas. Although lymph nodes are commonly referred to as glands, they are not true glands. This video explains this symptom and the reasons a person would want to get evaluation by a Medical Doctor in case medical treatment might be required. This video is not intended to diagnose or treat any condition. It is for educational purposes only. It is not a substitute for evaluation by your own doctor.

How Are Swollen Lymph Nodes Diagnosed?
 
15:29
http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/Lymplex.html http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/Lymplex-ingredients.html Swollen lymph nodes closer to the surface of the body are generally diagnosed by a doctor's examination and feeling for areas known to have coalescence of lymph nodes, for example, swollen lymph nodes under the arms (axillary lymph nodes), swollen lymph nodes in the sides of the neck (cervical lymph nodes), or swollen lymph nodes in the groin (inguinal lymph nodes). These swollen lymph nodes can be seen and felt easily. Other times, deeper lymph nodes could be seen on imaging studies, such as CT scan (computed tomography), of different parts of the body. Tonsils in the back of the throat are also lymph nodes, and they are the most visible ones in the body. Diagnosing the cause of swollen lymph nodes may be challenging at times. The most important component of evaluating a swollen lymph node is a thorough medical history and a complete physical examination by a doctor. The doctor may ask you about symptoms such as sore throat, fever and chills, fatigue, weight loss, a complete list of medications, sexual activity, vaccination history, recent travels, the patient's own and his/her family's previous history of cancers if any, and so forth. http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/store http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/store/lymplex.html

Is presence of painful lump in armpit & breast predictive of Breast Cancer? - Dr. Nanda Rajaneesh
 
02:50
Presence of lump in axilla always does not mean it is cancer. If there is a lump in the breast and axilla that means the lump in the breast has spread to the axilla. Breast cancer can isolately present as a lump in the axilla. Most commonly it is because of fatty tissue or accessory breast in the axilla which is very common in women. Because the milk ducts extends from the axilla to the abdomen the milk ducts disappear in many areas except in the axilla and the nipple area. Some women will have some residual milk ducts left in the axilla which leads to a lump in the axilla. Specially during breast feeding they can increase in size. Biggest problem with accessory breast is cosmetic reasons. Sometimes they can get very painful and tender and can get infected. Other lumps are lymph nodes in the axilla which can be infected and very painful and they can cause severe pain and they can also increase in size. The lump in the axilla in the presence of breast cancer can also be very painful. If they become bid they infiltrate the nerves around the axilla, lead to severe pain. Lumps can also be because of any increased lymph nodes in the axilla. There are many groups of lymph nodes in the axilla. Any nodal disease that we see in different parts of the body can come in the axillary nodes also. Whenever there is an enlargement of axillary lymph nodes alone you have to take biopsy or further evaluate it to find out diseases like tuberculosis, tubercular lymphadenitis as we call it or lymphoma of the lymph nodes in the axilla or any pyogenic infection in the axillary nodes.
