2enlargement lymph nodes in neck and 1in left armpit
I saw a doc and he said"let them alone"
they didn't disappear but no changing in size?

Why my doc didn't ask for biopsy for enlargement neck lymph nodes for 4 months
CBC is normal
Chest X-ray is normal
No other symptoms?
They're your friends: If the nodes are stable, not fixed to surrounding structures, not of a consistency that suggests disease, and you do not have obvious systems of Hodgkin's disease (the one real concern here), leave them alone.
