    Swollen nodes during chemo?

    So I am
    Going for my 4th round of abvd tomorrow and
    I have a swollen node under my jaw on the right side. I am going to point it out to doc tomorrow but was wondering if this happened to anyone else? It just appeared today and is kind of sore to the touch. About marble sized. No fever. No signs of cold.

    You are doing exactly the right thing re reporting it to your Onc. S/He is the one who will be either able to reassure you or feel that further investigation is needed.
    Good luck and I hope it is nothing serious.

    Doc said he is not worried about it. My guns were a lil swollen above that node but they look like they are getting better and the node is shrinking so he believes that's why it was swollen.

    I had a little jaw and gum pain too, especially where my wisdom teeth used to be. If your doc says not to worry about it, then breathe easy. There's a lot of symptoms that chemo can cause that seems like it's not working, but we have to remember that they are pumping what amounts to poison in our bodies and our bodies are saying "WTF?!?"
