I'm having headaches, low grade fever, swollen lymph nodes in neck & back of head that are painful to the touch & nausea what could be causing this?

Painful

nodes and fever would be more consistent with an infectious than a lymphomatous process, especially with GI symptoms as well

Dr. Barry Rosen answered:

I have multiple swOllen lymph nodes in neck and back of head. They never get bigger their just there. Biggest one is 2.25 cm. cancer?

Possible

Skull
Any lymph node larger than 2cm warrants further evaluation. However, the longer the nodes have been prominent but unchanged, the lower the probability of cancer. Other factors of importance include your age, smoking history, overall health, family history, etc. I advise you seek out a formal consultation from your primary care doctor. A biopsy may be indicated.

Swollen lymph nodes, neck & the back of my head. Headache, fever, body aches.. What can this all BE? :-(

Depends

Body_aches
You really should be seen by your MD. The symptoms described could be associated witha number of ailments. It is likely a viral infection, but not necessarily. Your age and your description would lead me to test for Mononucleosis (Epstein-Barr Virus), but any number of infections can present with your symptoms. See your doctor soon. Good luck!

Dr. Phil Zapanta answered:

How many lymph nodes can you feel in back of 2 yo head? I feel clusters at base of neck. Not swollen but 4-5. 1 is tiny like sand but mobile. Normal?

Likely normal

Neck
We have many lymph nodes in our neck. They are more noticeable (easly palpable) in thin patients and in patients who have an active infection or inflammation. If they are small (pea-sized) and mobile, they are likely normal. If it persists, becomes tender, or enlarges, see you pediatrician. Also if it seems the l ymph nodes are merging into 1 mass, see your pediatrician.

Dr. Lorrie Klein answered:

Red, sore bumps on LL back of scalp, lymph nodes swollen on L neck & on head. Dr. said it is psoraisis/gave me ointment. I feel head sick w/ fever. ?

See your doctor

Psoriasis
Sounds like more than psoriasis. See your primary care doctor so she/he can run some tests on you to rule out infection and other causes of lymph node swelling. Psoriasis does not usually cause lymph nodes to swell unless the plaques get secondarily infected.

Dr. Hung Khong answered:

Can a left ear melanoma give swollen lymph nodes on both sides of the neck, on the back of the head left side and also on the top of both shoulders?

Certainly

Swollen_glands
Melanoma can travel anywhere in the body, no matter where it originated. So, yes, a left ear melanoma can travel to lymph nodes in your neck (cervical nodes) on both sides, including the top (supraclavicular) and bottom (infraclavicular) areas of the collar bones.

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

Bit by a tick on back of head a week ago, no rash, sore neck, swollen lymph nodes, flu like symptoms, soreness only getting worse. Should I go to ER?

Primary Dr can check

Open-uri20120429-22316-fb3yr
On the west coast, the western black-legged tick can bite humans, and can cause Lyme disease, after feeding for 24-48 hours. A lab can test such a tick for Lyme disease bacteria. The doctor may treat with antibiotics if the lab finds Lyme bacteria, if the bite site has a bull's-eye rash, or if there are other worries... such as a lot of irritation and maybe a skin infection at the bite site.
