Special Treatment For Lymphadenopathy?
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com
Lymphadenopathy is an enlargement of the lymph nodes. These lymph nodes contain white blood cells and play a role in the body's defense system against bacteria, viruses and other causes. Lymphadenopathy usually occurs in the neck, armpit, or groin area and is not usually classified as a serious condition. However, lymphadenopathy can also be an early sign of serious disease, so a thorough examination is needed to determine the exact cause of lymphadenopathy.
The biopsy itself is done if there is a lump on our body. This aims to check what types of cells make up the tumor or lump so that early detection can be done if a malignancy occurs and its management will be adjusted to the possible cause.
If indeed you want a 3rd opinion, you should check with an internal medicine specialist first. However, usually if after treatment with antibiotics there is no reduction in the size of the lymph nodes, then a biopsy can be performed in that case.
Meanwhile you can try to consume healthy and nutritious foods and get enough rest to help the healing process.
That is the information we can convey. May be useful
