Your doctor, after knowing your symptoms and analyzing your medical history, will perform a physical examination to observe your lymph nodes and will request blood tests and imaging studies such as chest X-ray, MRI, and computed tomography. If deemed necessary, they may require a lymph node biopsy to analyze in the laboratory.
The treatment to follow will depend on what is causing the swelling. If it is due to a bacterial or viral infection, antibiotics or antivirals will be recommended. In the case of an autoimmune disease, such as arthritis or lupus, treatment will be aimed at controlling the condition.
If it is due to cancer, your doctor will assess what is most suitable for you, be it surgery, chemotherapy, or radiotherapy.
