Lymphadenopathy: Generalized lymphadenopathy is actually more associated with a viral or more of a systemic process. Collagen vascular disease, HIV, CMV, common cold, EBV, Toxoplasmosis. Leukemia and lymphoma possible too. Neurolbalstoma usually presents locally and is more a disease for younger children. I would encourage a visit with your provider.
