My son is going to be 3 years old. and since he was 6 months old we felt his neck area to be a little swollen. i mention it to his Dr. and they said not to worry its probably a viral infection he is getting over. After 6 months pass he still had them swollen , Every Dr's appointment I took my son I made sure to mention about his swollen Nodes and I keep getting the same answer. Oh his just getting over a viral or bacteria infection like a flu or fever. But he had not been sick since he was born. I know. At 14 months i requested from my insurance to authorize a ENT specialist . I took him an got the same answer it's nothing it's common in children to have them swollen. All this time my son didnt seem to be in pain and you cant really tell only when you touch his neck you know they are swollen. So another 6 months past and nothing had change , his nodes are still swollen Finally I told the Dr to do something. I was sent to another ENT specialist, And this Dr. Looked for everything. Did x-ray results nothing, Treatment with antibiotic results nothing, Biopsy results negative, Now my son is going to be 3 years old next month and his neck lymph nodes remain swollen. Cause unknown. Is there anyone that can give me some advice on what can be causing this
