A 20-year-old male asked:

I have can feel nodes on my neck, groin and jaw. they feel pea sized and i've had them for 3 years and they haven't changed, i also have no symtoms of lyphoma. could this just be due to me being very slim? i'm also only 17?

Could be. 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!
