A member asked:

Can lymph nodes stay enlarged due to past infection such as mono after the infection has passed? i have feelable lymph nodes which haven't changed and there pea sized. i'm also very slim and my nodes are movabl in my neck, groin and jaw?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Yes. If you keep checking your lymph nodes, you continue to irritate them and they stay mildly enlarged. Try to leave them alone. Also, I appreciate that you mentioned that you are thin, which makes it much easier to feel even normal sized lymph nodes. If you develop pain or a sudden change in the size of your nodes, please seek medical evaluation.
