Swollen lymph node on left side of neck
I am not sure how long I have had this swollen lymph node; I only noticed it a week or so ago. I might have had it for a long time though. The lymph node is movable, although not painful. I sometimes get a slight, yet sharp pain in my left ear(especially after I clean it out with a swab or finger), and I'm not sure if this is related. Does anyone have any idea what this might be?
Also, due to this node, I began looking for other swollen nodes on my body. I noticed that on the inside of both my thighs, I can feel very small lumps which I think are lymph nodes. However, I'm not sure if they are swollen; they are very small and I'm a pretty skinny person (5ft5in and 130lbs). They are not painful and they don't bother me. The only reason I noticed them was because I TRIED to look for swollen nodes on my body. But they don't move easily, though I think it's because they are so small that I am having trouble pushing down with my finger and moving them. Is it normal to be able to feel lymph nodes like this?
Thanks for any help
