Three swollen cervical lymph nodes all on left side of neck some ear pain doctor HS seen one of them says wait 2 month fbc normal should I be worried?

Lymph nodes: The lymph nodes usually enlarge as response to an infection in the vicinity. It lasts maximum 2-3 weeks and as the infection goes away (with antibiotics usually) the lymph nodes disappear. Outside this scenario, I would be worried and demand further investigation (ct is appropriate, a blood smear and CBC with differential, as well as a bmp with enzymes markers analysis) up to an excision biopy.

Gland on right side of neck swollen. What is the problem?

Have it evaluated: A swollen gland or lymph node should be evaluated by your doctor. You need to check if there are other lymph nodes that are swollen. It may just be an infection, but you want to make certain that it is not a manifestation of something more serious like lymphoma. These are cancers that localize in the lymph nodes. Many types are very treatable when caught early.

Sore gland on left side of neck. Feels swollen compared to right side. Painful when burp, feels like lump in throat on that side. Why could this be?

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well.

Throat pain for over a month, been talking penicillin for a week with no improvement. Swollen glands on left side of neck. I don't feel sick. Help!

Viral pharyngitis: With throat pain and swollen glands one wants to be sure there is bacterial and not viral infection. If penicillin isn't working and WBC normal use warm gargle with peroxide. Antibiotics induce MRSA as a possible side effect of unnecessary antibiotic treatment. Warm soaks also applied to neck nodes.
