A 24-year-old male asked:

I have new enlarged pea sized lymph nodes in either supraclavicular or deep cervical on left side. also submental nodes for over a year. had ultrasound but no doctors seemed concerned. should i push for biopsy or just believe the nodes are benign?

Need more info: If you have not lost weight and do not have fever, hou may watch and wait. You may feel the nodes every couple of weeks, if any of the lymph glands doubles in size, becomes painful, ulcerates, or other nodes become enlarged, or you develop fever, or lose weight, you should see a doctor. Wish you good health!
