Ovarian Cancer - Upper Lymph Nodes

Hi There,

My mum has a lump on her neck which we have been told is likely to be connected to the cancer. Mum has Advance Stage 3/4 ovarian cancer. Has anyone also had this, is it likely it is in other organs if her upper lymph nodes are enlarged?

I know we will understand more when she has her hysterectomy op but would like to know if anyone else had the same? I am hoping it hasn't spread too far. Mum is now receiving chemo for 3 cycles before her op.

I wanted to know if the lymph nodes enlarge sometimes but aren't actually infected with the cancer?

Many thanks. :)

  • I had an enlarged neck node for three weeks which my GP said was hard and may be cancer related but it did just disappear by itself. Xx

  • Yes they do enlarge usually infection for general population but sounds as though her team think they're related to the cancer. They will, I expect, do a histological test to check if they remove them. I was stage 3/4 on diagnosis in2010. Came back in soft tissue next to my sternum and disappeared after further chemo.
