Had mono one year ago. Still able to feel lymph nodes in neck, reduced in size but never went away. 1 near throat is kidney bean size. Normal?

Possibly: These residual lymph nodes are pretty common after mononucleosis. The kidney bean sized one seems a litter larger than normal. If a lymph node is larger than one centimeter then it may need to be biopsied. Please see your doctor and have a full body lymph node evaluation and possibly some blood tests. ...Read more

Neck masses: Other than lymph nodes in neck are commonly thyroid nodules, branchial cleft cysts, lipomas. If you can feel these masses in your neck, have your doctor order a ct or mri. Ultrasound is particularly good at telling whether a mass is solid or cystic, not hard or soft. ...Read more

Soft movable lymph nodes in neck less than 1 cm No other symptoms If they don't change in size or the number is that mean they are safe Thank you :)?

Soft movable lymph nodes in neck less than 1 cm
No other symptoms
If they don't change in size or the number is that mean they are safe
Thank you :)?

Very possibly...: but I think you should get an expert opinion. I would advise you have your physician examine them and confirm your assessment that these lymph nodes are benign. Then you can agree together on whether it is safe for you to self-monitor them, or if she/he wants you to return for a recheck just to make sure all remains stable/benign. Good wishes:) ...Read more

18 yrs old. Lymph nodes in neck have been same size for over yr. But I am now experiencing slight chest pains, coughing w/ some difficulty swallowing?

Correlated or not?: It is hard to know, especially without doing a physical exam and taking a complete medical history, whether or not the long standing enlarged lymph nodes (how big?) and your new symptoms are related or completely separate. If you have not been to a physician, or if you are concerned, i would recommend trying to go. I hope you feel better soon. ...Read more
