I have several enlarged lymph nodes in my neck, they arent very big but about 1 and 1/2 cm there is only one that can be seen but you can feel more.
I went to the doctor about 6 weeks ago and he said it was probably just an infection causing them to swell, but i would have thought that would have gone down by now.
I have also lost about 1/2 a stone in weight over the last 2 months - not intentionally which i've read may be a symptom of lymphoma
I want to know how many cases of enlarged lymph nodes actually turn out to be lymphomas and is this something which i should go back to the doctor for?

It turned out to be lymphoma. I suggest getting an x-ray. I am 16 years old. So far I am cured.
