I have very enlarged lymph nodes in my chest, also have been sweating to where im drenched in the morning when i wake up. Should i be worried?

Concerning...: I am assuming you have been seen by a doctor already, given the additional patient info you have given (you have had a ct scan, on antibiotics, etc.).

I hope you feel better soon, if you don't, see doc. ...Read more
