I've had a painless swollen lymph node in my neck, just under my jaw near my throat. I had NO symptoms of infection. I went to the doctor, and he said it feels soft and moveable, and barely swollen, and was pretty confident it wasn't cancer. He showed no real concern and just gave me antibiotics. Its about a month later and its still there (I do have a habit of touching it all the time). How worried should I be? I made another appointment, but just wanted a bit of feeback.
