Just looking for some advice, similar stories etc.

I'm 22yo female fit healthy non smoker.

I've had marble size palpable swollen lymph node in my left posterior cervical chain (side of neck) for over 6months. The lump is small measures 1.5cm x7mm on ultrasound but it's getting bigger. I haven't been sick in 4months.

I also had two submandibular nodes swollen both nearly 3cm x 8mm . I don't feel sick and the lymph nodes are painless. Only symptom I had was excessive sweating, bloating, and hot flushes throughout day and night.

Had a biopsy taken last week of the posterior cervical node. The radiology doctor said it was "overkill"

My bloods were all normal. Get my biopsy results tomorrow I'm very worried as I've become extremely fatigued and my submandibular nodes are getting really big now over last 3wks now size of apricots.

Anyone had similar symptoms and what's was your diagnosis??
