Supraclavicular lymphadenopathy

Posted by timeghost @timeghost, Feb 24, 2021

I developed angioedema, intense itching to the soles of both feet and supraclavicular lymphadenopathy (CT scan 2.4 cm x 1.3 cm) last Thursday. Swelling seems to be gradually getting better. My question is this, my PCP (not a Mayo MD) said I had to see a surgeon for removal of the node. If the swelling resolves completely do I still need to see a surgeon? Thanks for any guidance!!

Hi @timeghost, welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. It sounds like you might need to ask your PCP more questions. Do you know the cause of the angioedema and supraclavicular lymphadenopathy? Sometimes an excisional biopsy is recommended which is the removal of the entire node, which is then tested to see what is going on. I would ask your PCP more questions.


I have a very swollen supraclavicular lymph node on the left side of my neck along with swollen left axillary lymph nodes and a right groin lymph node. They've been swollen for over 2 weeks and are just now starting to ache at night and interrupting my sleep. I also get night sweats. Menopausal symptoms? I had a hysterectomy in 2015 and thought I was over all that!! Thanks for any input.
