Child diagnosed with adenopathy

Child diagnosed with adenopathy

Question:

- Hello! My name is Florina M. and I have a boy of 2 years and five months. At the beginning of June he was diagnosed with left parotiditis, but now his neck has not been deflated. I went to another doctor and he told us it was adenopathy. How serious is this disease and how is it treated? Now we will take him to another specialist. Waiting for your response. Thank you very much!

Answer:

Dear lady adenopathy, that is, the inflammatory response of the lymph nodes appears in many diseases from the most common ones such as pharyngitis, but also in some serious blood diseases such as lymphomas.
For this reason it is necessary to thoroughly investigate the child and to treat correctly the determining cause of adenopathy. If the investigations conclude that this is an infection, the treatment is with antibiotics and anti-inflammatories.
For more discussions I would need the results of some analyzes performed and the related symptomatology.
Good health and I'm waiting for you with details,
