Cervical lymph nodes swollen for a year. Send rate elevated at 28 but Cbc was normal. Should I worry about lymphoma? Took antibiotics with no help.

In brief: Lymphadenopathy

A year is a long time to have enlarged lymph Nodes and given your Hashimotos, it is possibly an autoimmune lymphadenopathy.
You may need to set an oncology consult to properly Evaluate, perhaps even a diagnostic biopsy tissue examined by a hematopathologist to rule out a chronic type or indolent lymphoma. Check out chapters in our book, Nonneoplastic hematopathology .. For more info. Take care.
