A 21-year-old male asked:

I know its normal for me to be able to feel pea sized nodes in my neck, groin and head since i'm very slim and ive got no fat layers in them areas therefor i can feel my nodes more easily. but can i still feel them with no infection presant or past?

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!

probably normal but monitor them, if any change in size or tenderness notify your MD
