Causes Of Hip To Foot Shrinking In Patients With Lymph Node Swelling?
Hello ,,,, my father is sick, he has already been examined he said lymph node but the small one is the hips to the feet, is it related to the illness suffered by my father or what is it … Thankfully beforehand🙏
Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, what is the real illness that your father suffered?
Throughout the body, there are many lymph nodes. These lymph nodes act as a haven and proliferate blood cells, mainly white blood cells, when the body is inflamed, for example due to allergies or infections. Normally, these lymph nodes cannot be palpated from the outside. But if it swells, the lymph nodes will form a lump that is generally the size of a marble. Not infrequently, the swollen lymph nodes are assembled so that they are swollen, reddish, feel warm, even festering and rupture if they have a secondary infection.
Swelling in the lymph nodes (lymphadenopathy) around the hips to the feet is generally caused by infections around the pelvis to the lower limbs. Some examples of these infections are cellulitis, cat scratch disease, pelvic inflammation, peritonitis, filariasis, diabetic ulcers, and so on. It could also, swelling in the lymph nodes arising from other infections (such as tuberculosis, HIV, cytomegalovirus, syphilis), benign or malignant tumors (such as lymphoma, leukemia, other cancers that metastasize to lymph nodes), side effects of drugs, immune disorders (such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus), and so on.
Without checking what your father's current condition is like, it is not right for us to determine the exact cause of his complaint. Therefore, you should consult directly related to the condition with a doctor or internist who examined it. Depending on the cause of the complaint, your father may later be treated with medication, surgery, or given other therapeutic modalities.
In the meantime, our advice, you remind your father to improve his cleanliness. Also take care of his endurance by giving him a variety of balanced nutritional value foods, let him rest a lot, do not squeeze lumps due to swollen lymph glands carelessly, and do not carelessly give your father medicine if not prescribed directly by the doctor.
Hope this helps ...
