For about a year, I have noticed 3 enlarged lymph nodes on the back of my neck. Two are vertical, right next to each other, and directly to the right of my spine. The other one feels like a pea and is slightly to the right of them right below my hair line.
I also have a cyst right behind my right ear that I have had for years, but seems to be growing or something. Another cyst, or a growth from my other cyst, has appeared a little bit farther to the left on my head.
Some days they are larger than other days.
I saw a hematologist and my blood count was normal. He saw me 6 months later and released me from his practice because he felt there was nothing wrong. He said I could see a plastic surgeon about having the random cyst(s) removed.
I would still like to know why I can feel these 3 lymph nodes and if it's connected to the cyst(s). It just doesn't seem "normal" to me.
I don't have any other symptoms. No nightsweats, weight loss, etc. I do get headaches, not migraines, but annoying headaches at least 1 to 2 times a week and meds don't help.
I realize these things aren't really affecting my life hardcore, but it makes me worry a little. Just want to know what's causing it.
