A 16-year-old male asked:

I've been told that i can feel lymph nodes all over my body like in my neck, groin head etc. but is it also normal for me to be able to feel lymph nodes below my right and left ear if i'm very slim?

It's not uncommon for some people to feel lymph nodes in this region, esp if one is thin. Should these nodes change and become enlarged or tender, you should see your doc for an evaluation

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!
