  • Hi,I think you should go see an immunologist immediately. Swollen lymph nodes that don't go away can be a sign of persistent infection, or even worse things like breast cancer and lymphoma.Keep pestering your doctors until they listen to you, a lymph node that has been swollen for a year is a BIG cause of concern and the fact that they do not seem worried is very disturbing to me. My mother-in-law is a nurse, she happens to be visiting right now and I asked her if she agreed with me. She said that she thinks the doctors in her practice would have biopsied the node by now to check for any evidence of cancer and she thinks your doctors are not concerned enough.Good luck and keep us posted,E
