Hello, I completed treatment for triple negative breast cancer a year ago. I recently noticed that a node under my jaw on the left side is swollen. I had an ultrasound on Thursday and am waiting for the results. Has anyone had an experience with a random swollen node?

Yup, there are lots of us on this site who have various swollen nodes that appear to be unrelated to our BC diagnosis. I've had multiple swollen neck nodes for 15 months - neck area is very common. I've had 3 ultrasounds that were all fine - they just seem to be stubbornly persistent but normal reactive nodes. Had a 4th ultrasound last week, no results yet but the tech, who isn't supposed to say anything, said that everything looked fine. Hopefully he's right.

One thing I was told initially, and others here have been told as well, is that the neck (and above) area is not common for breast cancer mets, at least not without there also being swollen nodes in the chest or lower collarbone area.

Hope it turns out fine!
