I was diagnosed with Cervical cancer I have some lymph nodes that are swollen and a ongoing cough producing phlem/mucus?
Hello. I am a 36 year old female experiencing an ongoing cough producing phlem/mucus for around 4 weeks now, drenching night sweats, every night for the past couple of weeks. I have to change my clothes 2-3 times each night. I am generally cold, so this is strange for me. I am also experiencing weight loss and poor appetite, but was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism 17 years ago. I have been able to maintain my weight at around 110 pounds, but the last several months, it has been very difficult to keep it up. I was diagnosed with Cervical cancer a little over a year ago, but was able to get it surgically removed and my pap smears have come back normal since. I have some lymph nodes that are swollen and slightly tender in the neck and groin area. I also have Ankylosing Spondylitis. I don’t know if these are related, but my research thus far shows that they may be linked. I greatly appreciate you taking the time to look this over, and offering some advice!
this may or may not be related.
you need to get a chest CT and spirometry to confirm.
get tumor markers done to rule out malignancy.
sputum examination will rule out chronic inflammatory disease
In my opinion you could be suffering from Tuberculosis or viral infection , a sample from lymph nodes should be taken to analyse, however most of your symptoms are related to hyperthyroidism not the infection , i recommend you seek a permenant treatment for it
İ really do not think it is the tumor again it is more chst related I suspect T.B or viral …so you need chest xray and culture of sputum to confirm.
Painful swollen LNs is a good sign that its most probably not cancerous, obviously you have respiratory infection
Also u should repeat the thyroid profile v soon
And regarding the fear of having cancer, you need to do routine check up for it
