What's the normal size of a (neck) lymph node and which size would be considered as lymphadenopathy?


Possible causes?
----------

Dear Monica M,
Human lymph nodes are bean-shaped and range in size from a few millimeters to about 1-2 cm in their normal state. They may become enlarged due to a tumor or infection. White blood cells are located within honeycomb structures of the lymph nodes. Lymph nodes are enlarged when the body is infected due to enhanced production of some cells and division of activated T and B cells.
Lymphadenopathy, which is defined as an abnormality in the size or character of lymph nodes, is caused by the invasion or propagation of either inflammatory cells or neoplastic cells into the node. It results from a vast array of disease processes whose broad categories are easily recalled using the mnemonic acronym "MIAMI," representing Malignancies, Infections, Autoimmune disorders, Miscellaneous and unusual conditions, and Iatrogenic causes.
Malignancies : Lymphomas, Leukemias, Skin neoplasms , Kaposi's sarcoma, Metastases.
Infections : Brucellosis, Cat-scratch disease, CMV,HIV primary infection, Lymphogranulomavenereum, Mononucleosis, Pharyngitis, Rubella, Tuberculosis, Tularemia, Typhoid fever, Syphilis, Viral hepatitis.
Autoimmune disorders : Lupus erythematosus, Rheumatoid arthritis, Dermatomyositis, Sjögren's syndrome.
Miscellaneous and unusual conditions : Kawasaki's disease, Sarcoidosis
Iatrogenic : Serum sickness, Medications.

Ok. I hope you will be glad with my answer.
Good luck.

my cardioligist ordered a cat scan(ct-abdomen with contrast and he wrote on the order "lymphadenopathy". What


What is he looking for?
----------

Lymphadenopathy means enlarged lymph nodes and there are several things that can cause this. Apparently your doctor isn’t sure what the cause is in your case, so he or she is ordering a CT to either find or rule out the cause of it. This could very well be a precautionary measure.

All x-rays and scans must have a doctor’s order and the doctor is required to state on the order the reason they are requesting the exam, in your case it is because you have enlarged lymph nodes.  (+ info)

does any effect in Lymphadenopathy after laser underarm hair removal?


No:

Okay... science answer:

You grow in at least 80% of your hair during puberty. When you have laser hair removal the hairs it kills will never grow again. But you still have up to 20% of your normal thickness that will grow in throughout the rest of your life. So people get touch up sessions every 3-5 years after their big 6 treatments. You need about 6 treatments, one each 2 months for a year, because the hair grows in different stages and it can only kill hair in the active growth stage. The laser works by targeting dark color (the hair follicle) and passing through light color (the skin) the hair and skin have to be very different shades of color for the hair to work. The darker and coarser the hair and lighter the skin, the better results you will have.

Okay... Personal Experience:

I've had 3 out of my 6 treatments so far. It HURTS! It's like being poked with a sewing needle over and over, but it's not as painful as a tattoo, and that's not as painful as childbirth, maybe that can put the pain in perspective for you =) I've had my legs, underarms, and bikini area done. When you get your bikini area done they do ALL of it! Including spreading your butt and vaginal lips apart to laser all the cracks... It's sorta awkward. After the 3 treatments I've had so far I've lost about 60% of leg hair, 80% bikini hair, and 80% underarms hair. It's because the underarms hair is the thinnest and the leg hair is the coarsest. But the legs are the most painful. The more it hurts the better it works.
I spent this much for 6 treatments in each area:
Bikini-$750
Underarms-$750
Legs (toes to bikini)-$2,500
