My lymph nodes started swelling up about a year ago (one by one...). I now have two enlarged lymph nodes at the back of my neck, one at the back of my head, two in left supraclavicular area, two in left axilla and several on left side of the groin. Two of them have slowly gotten bigger over time. All of them are firm and cannot be "squished", not painful at all. They're not very big in size (1-2 cm).
I feel fine, and I haven't been sick in like 2 years and I have no allergies. I've never had a problem like this before so I am a bit puzzled.
My doctor said it could be normal, because I'm thin, and maybe it's just a phase I'm going through. Or she said it could possibly be a lymphoma, but she said she wasn't going to go ahead and rule that out as I had no other symptoms of it. She told me to just come back if I started getting chest discomfort...
My blood tests are pretty much fine, except slightly elevated eosinophils and hematocrit on the low side, so my doctor is not worried about anything.
I am worried though... I don't know what I am supposed to do. I think about this every day, and I know I shouldn't. But I don't see how she could tell me it could either be normal or something as serious as lymphoma... What am I supposed to do? Wait and see if I possibly develop any symptoms...?
