  • Just as the last poster stated, everyone has lymph nodes all over his/her body, so unless they are enlarged, probably nothing to worry about. I had Lymphoblastic Lymphoma when I was 14, but it came on pretty quickly. I don't remember my lymph nodes being swollen, but my left lung completely filled up with fluid and was very painful. I had to be hospitalized and have my lung drained very quickly. If this has been going on for that long, I doubt it's lymphoma. You should have a physical every year anyway, so next time you go in, tell your doctor if it's worrying you that much.
