My 2.5 year old son has swollen lymph nodes in neck, clavicle, underarm and groin. Only swollen on the left side, fever started 2 days ago.

Lymphadenopathy

At this age, we see fever with certain group of lymph node enlargement, like neck, under chin, behind ears and some other areas. Cause is mostly of viral. If multiple groups are involved with fever but no rash, I will advise to have a thorough exam by his pediatrician, check for liver /spleen enlargement, have simple blood test like a CBC. with diff. and any more if needed. Do not get scared.

my 3.5 year old son has had some swollen lymph nodes since April when he caught strep they are still enlarged ?

Doctor can re-check

Young children can have swollen lymph nodes for months, especially if they catch a cold or a strep throat every couple of months. It is important to see the same doctor, so that the same person is examining the child's neck. He can compare his exams from different visits, and can also swab the throat for strep at follow-up visits. There are few rare, bad diseases that also cause persistent nodes.

I've been sick for about a year. It started with leg pain and has progressed to headaches, sweating, bloody noses, fatigue, and swollen lymph nodes. ?

See a doctor

Pain
You need to put together a detailed list of each and every one of your symptoms and the time frames in which they occurred and their association with each other and take it with you to see a doctor who will perform a detailed history, physical exam and probably some labs and possibly some imaging studies. You need a full professional evaluation face to face, not over the internet.

No cancer

Inflammation_of_the_thyroid
Thyroid peroxydase is a sign of Hashimotos thyroiditis, that has nothing to do with cancer. Lymphoma of the thyroid extremely rare. I would not worry

I have had frequent infections,shingles 4 times in less than a year,swollen lymph nodes everywhere,itching all over(no rash),fatique,why?

Immune deficiency

Itching_all_over
Getting frequent infections including Shingles indicated that you have reduced immune resistance, especially with recurrent viral infections it indicates more of cell mediated immune deficiency than antibody mediated. Also enlarged lymphnodes everywhere is to be taken seriously. It would be good in you see ur PCP /hematologist. need to r/o infections,hematologic condns includ.lymphomas,leukemia

Ive had swollen lymph nodes for over year..now my tounge and roof of mouth hurts..i have a sore on roof of mouth..my ears also hurt?

Active/swollen nodes

Teeth
AKA lymphadenopathy, that have been symptomatic for a year suggest a chronic problem w infection or systemic issues. This is NOT normal. Get to your otolaryngologist or oral surgeon ASAP. Very important that you be examined and find the source of this long standing issue.

Very small 1cm swollen lymph nodes under arms. Been there for a year or so. Very soft and moveable. No infection. Why is this?

Could be normal

Enlarged_lymph_nodes
Several lymph nodes are present in your axilla. In thin patients these lymph nodes can be easily felt. The presence of a lymph node is not an abnormality. Should it change in size, become firm and immobile, or if you have other worries about it, see your friendly doctor.
