Positive I have lymphoma or some type of cancer.. please help?

I suppose the only thing I can do is go to the doctors but I want to ask a few questions before that.

I've had 2 hard mobile 1 inch(a little less) lymph nodes under my jaw and one on my left cheek for about 15 years(I'm 18). I've never suffered any symptoms but from my understanding sometimes you don't have to.

I had the one on my cheek checked when I was real young, about 5 years old and the doctor thought it was from being sick.

I look very sick and I always have. I have a very pale face and eye bags and I've never been sure as to why. Recently I've been researching lymphoma and I'm positive I have it.

I'm very scared because I've let this go so long and I have no clue whats going to happen or I can even survive when I get diagnosed.

Has anyone ever had lymph nodes for years that turned out to not be cancer? How could it not be cancer if I've had them for 15 years? What could it be? It has to be cancer right?

15 years and you're still alive?

It's not cancer.

Do they come and go or are they always present? When you were young I am sure the Dr. was right.
Have a Great Day!
