I am worried about the swelling of Lymph Nodes, you need of course to see a Doctor, and most probably have a Blood test and biopsy ( which is easy to do by a Needle . Concern is Lymphoma ( different kinds), if diagnoses early can be curable. Of course there is also possibility of Infections which is also treatable. The sooner yoy see a Doctor the better is the outcome.
