What are the chances that a 17 yr old male who has persistent generalized lymphoadapthy with no other symptoms does not have anything sinister at all?

In brief: Needs to be checked

The odds it's not serious are reasonable, but the bad things it could be are really bad, & respond better if they get found early, so go get checked soon!

In brief: Possible, BUT....

It 's possible that it is nothing to worry about- but it is also possible that it may be caused but something serious that needs to be treated right away.
Some serious diseases can be initially presented only with lymphadenopathy without symptoms. So, to be in the safe side and to ease your mind, i think, you should see your doctor and have further evaluation to see what really the case is.
