Lymphadenits, do FNAC first,if necessary biopsy. while taking biopsy only u will come to know the diagnosis, if u get a put with casease material, then tuberculosis, otherwise inflammation, malignancy. HPR report will confirm.

Can lymphadenitis occur without any systemic symptoms? What is the consistency of swelling ?

i would do ultrasonogram. It will show number of lymph nodes involved. caseation, cold abcess could be diagnose. Excision biopsy is preferred. histology, TB culture is also possible. MDR TB could be diagnosed.

Sir pls do a FNAC or biopsy. Further management depends upon the HPE. Also would recommend a CECT head and nech
