Might I suggest going back to the clinic. Ask if a biopsy is needed. If told 'no', ask why so that you are comfortable with the answers.
Let the clinic know if you have any other symptoms no matter if you think they are related or not. Night sweats, itching, etc. Remind the clinic that the nodes have been around for 3 years and you have more of them now.
Good Luck and please repost results.
Remember most all swollen Lymph Nodes are not for the bad reasons you have floating around in your head. Hang in there.
