Re: can you feel lymph nodes when they are not swollen

Sometimes, yes. Usually you can feel the ones under your jaw, at least.

Where are the ones you're concerned about? And why are you concerned?

Re: can you feel lymph nodes when they are not swollen

Well the ones I can feel are under the jaw and one above my collar bone. These don't feel oversized or unusual, I was curious if you should be able to feel them when they aren't neccessarily swollen.

When I felt them, I was experiencing fatigue and some body aches, I think it was a cold/flu virus. Afterwards I could still feel them, is it normal to feel them for a while after you have been sick?
