Wonder if anyone can help
I have a swollen gland in my neck and several on my left groin.
My GP said it was probably due to a viral illness (unknown to my self - apart from odd cold/cough) - Eventually I went to ENT and he said the same although allowed me to have an ultrasound for my own reassurance
This showed they were ok and again prob due to viral illness

I still worry about them - they dont seem to have got any bigger - i dont really get night sweats (only when menstrating) or any other symptoms.

Do you think im ok ? Should i still be worrying
I just wish they would go away
