What type of nodes would appear with mantle cell lymphoma or any other type of malignancy? Would they be rigid and fixed or can they be soft and moveable? Internist felt node but said likely benign.

In brief: Lymph node

Generally malignant lymph nodes are firm, but I have seen some that were soft and movable.
If this node doesn't recede within a week or so, and if new enlarged nodes appear a biopsy would seem advisable. Discuss this with your physician and he/she will advise you about what type of follow-up is best.
