Several things: Infection and lymphoma are two possibilities. If you are sexually active, you should see your doctor for an std test that should include hiv, among others. This may also be lymphoma (hodkin's lymphoma has a peak of incidence in your age group). Other causes include sarcoidosis or other form of autoimmunigy. Go see your doctor!
