    Has anyone had lymph nodes pop up in a spot far away from your cancer?

    I have bladder cancer tht I'm still getting treated for but I am sure I can feel lymph nodes in my neck. I can't see my doctor until Monday.

      In the middle of cold and flu season, and since they are in your throat area, I would say that it is much more likely that it is one of the many viruses going around.

      Lymph nodes are a filter and sometimes they do just as our Fried Po says, they swell up when doing a little overtime in doing their job. "Most likely", nothing, but as always, a doctor should take a look. In two of my 4 diagnoses that's how I found them, swollen nodes.
