The lymph nodes "taste" the lymph to see if anything bad is there 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. ...Read more

About 4 years ago i had mono but ever since I have had a two lymph nodes in my groin and its 1.4 CM long and .6 wide do you think I should see a doc?

Are they changing?: You pose an excellent question. I share your concern. The most important question to ask right now is: "have these two lymph nodes changed in any way?" if the answer is that these nodes are stable, non-tender, not red, and are gently movable; then, these are probably lymph nodes that have little to worry about. However, since you raise this question, have your doctor feel these next office visit. ...Read more

I think I might have two swollen lymph nodes in my groin area. If I have Hodgkin's or non Hodgkin's would I have more symptoms?

Probably : You can get groin nodes from something as simple as going barefoot. Hodgkin's seldom starts there and when it does, the nodes are obviously abnormal. Your lymph nodes are your friends. Unless they are obviously pathological, just mention them to your physician next visit ...Read more
