How to Diagnose Chronic Lymphadenitis
Your doctor will ask about your symptoms and medical history, and perform a physical exam.
Tests may include the following:
- White blood cell (WBC) count-WBCs help fight infection, so levels will be high if you have an infection.
- Blood culture-testing of a sample of blood to look for bacteria or fungus
- Biopsy of the lymph node-removal of a sample of lymph node tissue for testing
- Ultrasound-a test that uses sound waves to examine your lymph nodes
