Swollen lymph nodes on neck - had them for about 3 months already. What is the fastest treatment for this?

There are no specific blood tests for the causes of enlargement of lymph nodes, which is a very common symptom, usually just reflecting exposure to multiple, mostly viral infections of head, neck, and respiratory passages. ...Read more
