User Profile
I have large swallow lymph node on both side of neck. One is quite large sized around 2 cm and another is small around 1 cm size. I am not suffering from any fever or any other observable desease sysmptoms.

Large right lymph node is since last 6 month and left side is started to become hard in last 15 days back.

Are these sign of cancer ?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
The reactive lymph nodes in neck could be due to the sinus issues. Focus on resolving the sinus problem, the lymph node should get better. The change in consistency and other valuables (like fixation, movement, fixed to skin, change in color, change in size) should be monitored at regular basis. If cancer changes were present, the FNAC would have picked up changes in the cell type. To be sure, you can request to go ahead with getting tumor marker tests done, they will show if you are prone to have cancer.
Take care.
