For almost six months I have had both anterior and posterior cervical lymph node enlargement. All are about 1.0 CM or less. Should I be concerned?
Probably not: Reactive lymph nodes are very common. We start to get excited about them when they're over 1 1/2 to 2 cm in size.

I have had enlarged supraclavicular and posterior cervical lymph nodes for 3 years. Since I've had them so long do you think they aren't serious?
It is worrisome: Lymph nodes swell when there is something wrong. It can be something as simple as a sinus infection or as serious as cancer, HIV/AIDS, or syphilis. The only way to decide if is is "serious" is to determine what is causing it. Three years of supraclavicular lymphadenopathy would make me worry about the possibility of lymphoma (a type of blood cancer). See your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
