I’m a 24 year old male with a swollen lymph node behind my ear (post auricular). It’s 1.3-1.5cm in length, moveable and painless. It has been there for at least 3 years with no increase in size. No other symptoms have developed. Worth worrying about?

In brief: Common finding

Many people have 1 or 2 enlarged L nodes in the neck area.
Most likely benign. Show your doc the next time you go in. If it changes &/or you start getting more swollen glands, get evaluated.
