Why do all my docs say my swollen lymph nodes are fine just bc their not growing. There still has to be a reason their swollen right? They won't test

Swollen glands: The real reason not to test is because the only good test is a needle aspiration or surgical excision, and no md wants to do that if it's not absolutely necessary.
