I have a persistent pain in the left side of my neck and I can feel at least 3 lymph nodes around my neck. What do you think it may be?

In brief: See your doctor

It is possible that this is an infection, however it could be something more serious.
It is very important that you see your doctor as soon as possible to figure out what is going on in your neck.

In brief: Time to see your doc

Even though there are other benign reasons for lymph nodes to be swollen, you must go get this situation checked by your doc.
