A 28-year-old female asked:

Confused - in a healthy young adult, are pea-sized neck and supraclavicular lymph nodes for months normal or should they not be palable?

Should be ok: Especially if you are thin, nodes less than 1 cm are usually nothing to worry about. If they persist or grow, would recommend an evaluation. This could involve imaging. Some people get biopsies.
