    stones cause enlarged lymph nodes??
    timpdg208 posted:
    My husband went in to have a CTscan on his kidneys after repeated pain from kidney stones. Today they called and said he had a stone (as we thought) but that he has swollen lymph nodes around his colon. They did not seem really worried about it (they said he would get a referral for a colonoscopy in 7-10 days). Is this something we should be worried about? He is only 31 years old, but he does have a family history of colon issues. Is there anything else that could cause these nodes to be swollen? I am freaked out and need some answers. JT
    John-SKPT responded:
    I don't immediately see any connection between kidney stones and enlarged lymph nodes (unless there is some significant infection caused by the stones, and that infection/inflammatory process is causing the lymph nodes to swell. That's a really remote chance but I suppose it might be possible.) So this is probably a separate issue that just happens to be going on at the same time. I hope that everything goes well, and that you get some good answers soon.
