i noticed i had 2 swollen glands in my neck ( below jaw line ) they were both directly opposite each other, Painless and hard I went to doctors and he told me not to worry about it and gave me anti biotics and i went about my life
2 days later i noticed 3 small glands up on the left side of my groin again painless and hard but small i also started getting pains in my lower stomach which i went to A&E for and the admitted me to a ward, there i got a chest and abdominal Xray which both came back clear, they put it down to lymphadenopathy due to unknown viral and sent me on my way. after a few days i went back ( mostly because of pure fear and anxiety ) and they preformed an ultrasound on Liver, Spleen kidneys e.t.c this also came back clear
The nodes are still up and still hard not getting any bigger but not getting any smaller either. I'm sick of being told it's nothing when it's obviously SOMETHING
All i keep getting in google in Lymphoma this and Lymphoma that i am freaking out! literally losing my hair over it!
-Painless glands in throat / groin
-Very occasional night sweats ( not every night but twice a week maybe and not drenching )
- Lower back pain
that's all so far that i have noticed also been tired a lot recently but i've always been a lazy sleepy person
Any info would be great and i am more then happy to answer any questions
Thanks in advance, Phill
P.S also on a wait and see approach need to follow up with my family doctor in a week and keep an eye on the nodes

Maybe you should ask for an ultrasound or CT Scan of the nodes and see if they are bigger than considered "normal". My husband noticed a enlarged lymphnode about the same place as yours on one side that came up around Thanksgiving and had not gone away for a few weeks (he has always noted this node since college that it would swell up when he was sick and take awhile to go down). He had NO other B symptoms. went to doc and he got an ultrasound on 12/17, CTscan 12/31, biospy around 1/14, surgery to remove 1/24 diagnosed 1/28 and started chemo 2/15 for Follicular lymphoma. Good news was that he caught it fast. Good luck to you.
You should go to the doctor and request a biopsy. I had this happen to me as well. The doctor kept giving me antibotics, did an ultrasound and saw all of the swollen lymph nodes and did nothing about it. I got out of the military, saw a civilian doctor, had ultrasounds, ct scan and biopsy done and it came back as Follicular Lymphoma.
