I have multiple swollen lymph nodes in neck and back of head. They never get bigger their just there. Biggest one is 2.25 cm. Cancer?
Possible: Any lymph node larger than 2cm warrants further evaluation. However, the longer the nodes have been prominent but unchanged, the lower the probability of cancer.

A biopsy may be indicated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
