Re: Lumps in the front of my throat/neck?
Hello there! There are many, many nodes in the neck, and it's very normal for them to swell at times, especially if you are sick or have allergies. Even pressing on them can enlarge them, so try to avoid feeling them too often. Just keep an eye on them and feel them once per day at the most. Nodes should be able to move a little bit (they sort of slide around a tiny bit) and shouldn't be rock-hard. Many of them are around pea-sized, but in general, 2 cm or smaller. You will notice that many are symmetical.
My fiance recently felt some nodes on him that he wasn't sure about and had a CT scan and talked to his doctor about it. I've heard ALL about them and found out that feeling them or seeing them is quite normal. Just make sure it isn't getting much larger, or then I'd definitely get it checked out. Just try not to touch them (although I know it's hard to not touch when worried), because that can cause them to be sensitive/sore and a little swollen.
I think it's likely just swollen glands from the cold you had and nothing to worry about. Just monitor them! I can't tell exactly which part you are looking at without seeing you point to it, but there are many, many nodes in the neck.
