    As a general rule, we do not offer much feedback to readers with life-threatening conditions and diseases such as cancer. This is to prevent readers from delaying in seeking one-on-one medical attention based on the advice that we give. I am quite unsure what your exact question is, but if it is about the swollen lymph nodes, these questions should be directed at your oncologist. If you are asking whether the port is the causes of the lymphadenopathy, swelling in the area or metastatic spread to the lymph nodes – we cannot answer that with any certainty without knowing your history and examining you. Consult with your oncologist as soon as possible.
