Lymphadenopathy: You have been seen by your GP, ENT and an oncologist? They have all told you its fine, but you are still anxious and want a fourth opinion from online physicians who have not examined you? Do you have an anxiety disorder? what is the source of your dizzyness? is your tachycardia due to PSVT instead of PVC which would be rare in your age and gender. Consult a mental health professional for eval.
