Has anybody heard of RCC spreading to axillary lymph nodes (underarm lymph nodes)? Would this show up on CT scans? I'm taking everolimus as an adjuvant therapy and have been NED since my kidney was removed in December. I've been having sinusitis/rhinitis and cold like symptoms which I attribute to the everolimus. Those symptoms have been there for about 5 weeks, since I started everolimus along with nausea, fatigue, cough. I'm also getting some tender spots under my tongue.
Starting about a week or two ago I noticed swollen lymph nodes under my left arm. I will see my doctor on Wednesday, but I was wondering if RCC could spread from my kidney to underarm lymph nodes? Has anybody ever heard of that?
