Yes: The nodes will not be swollen for no reason, but the reason isn't necessarily a problem with your health. Lymph nodes increase in size when the immune system is fighting something, like an infections or injury. Having said that, big or painful lymph nodes that don't shrink back down should be evaluated. In your age group, lymphoma, a cancer of the lymph nodes, is a rare but real possibility.Hyj/k. ...Read more

Swollen lymph node in neck? It moves around and its small im 16 and scared 
does it always mean something's wrong? Will i die? I feel fine

No: We all have lymph nodes and sometimes they will swell. The lymph nodes are part of your natural defense. They help remove infections and other substances from your body. They can swell in response to infection, or cancer, or nonspecific inflammation. I suspect yours is from a viral infection. Your physician can help clarify this for you. ...Read more

For the past 3 weeks I have had a swollen lymph node on the back and side of my neck and now feel one in my groin area..should I be worried?

Would not be worried: However, these need to be checked out by a physician and in the context of your medical history and a full medical exam. Go ahead and schedule an appointment.

Just found a swollen lymph node on right side of neck, its sore now that I have bothered it. Should i worry? I have another small one on same side

Likely benign, but: The neck is a very common place for mild lymph node enlargements. We do about 5-6 lymph node biopsies a day-from the neck-and most of them are benign. However if rapid growth is noted, or if bigger than 3cm, or if other symptoms develop you need to have it checked. The most common cause of enlarged lymph nodes in the neck are a viral illness, a dental infection, skin infection and "other". ...Read more

I am referred to an ENT due to long term swollen lymph node.. Ct done, bloods normal.. I have now found another one on other side of neck? Worry?

Biopsy?: No need to worry yet. Just return and see if your ENT thinks a biopsy is indicated to rule out Hodgkin's lymphoma which can happen after mononucleosis sometimes. Fortunately, that is usually treatable, even curable. Please do make sure your hiv test is done and negative, though. ...Read more

Swollen lymph node at right side of my neck, but left side seems ok. Why the difference?

Fight local infectio: Lymph nodes enlarge in response to inflammation in the area from which their drainage occurs. If you have an infected gum or tooth, have a one-sided tonsillar infection, or other similar conditions, this may be the explanation. If the node continues to enlarge, changes character (becomes hard, fixed, tender, warm to touch, etc.), or fails to resolve in time, have it examined by a doctor. ...Read more

I'm almost 25 years old. Is it normal to have a swollen lymph node on the right side of my neck at this age or should it be examined?

Depends: If it is small mobile node, you may watch and wait. Check it about once every two weeks. If it grows in size, becomes stuck to surrounding tissue and less mobile, or if other nodes become palpable, it would be time to consult a doctor.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
