Can lymph nodes turn into cancer?

Lauren S
the nodes themselves cannot "turn into" cancer, but some of the cells in them may form oncogenes and divide uncontrollably, therefore resulting in a cancer.
also, cancer in other organs such as the colon, breast, etc, can metastasize to nearby lymph nodes.

as with all parts of your body, lymph nodes can develop cancer.

If you have any doubts, get checked out by a doc...lymph nodes can be removed which would halt the spread, so the sooner its checked the better.

blondy =]
yes. go get checked out

They don't 'turn into' cancer, but they can contain cancer.

.Gee Whillakers

Your lymph nodes don't turn into cancer, but sometimes the lymphocytes (cells inside lymph nodes) can become cancerous. This type of cancer is called lymphoma, there are two main types Hodgkin's Lymphoma, and non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
If you have a swollen lymph node it doesn't mean cancer but you should have it looked at by a doctor because swollen lymph nodes are a sign of many different infections.

Peter M
Lymph nodes can become cancerous

Barb B
there is a cancer of the lymph nodes called Hodgkins lymphoma
