Swollen lymph glands.
Hi guys, it's been years since i've posted on the message boards but i'm back with another problem. I've been sick rescently and after just getting over this cold (worst i've had in a while) I couldn't help but notice two small bumps behind my ears. I knew straight away that these were probably lymph glands (or nodes) and forgot about it. Randomly though, I thought of the two lumps I had on both sides of my jaw, just up near my ears. I've had these lumps for ages (years, I think :/ ) but from all the information i'd gotten from people around me, they weren't normal. I went to the doctor and he pretty much went yeah, you they're lymph glands. I told him i'd had them for a while now but I he told me they're there because they're helping my immune system battle infection. I'm not quite sure he understood me when I said they'd been there for AGES. Is it normal to be able to feel them? They don't hurt. Overall I feel pretty good. Just wanted to se if anyone else had any imput because there were a few questions I didn't get to ask the doctor. Like does it have anything to do with the acne I have (i'm 17 and taking med's for them)? Is it my wisdom teeth? Is it cancer (i'll always be a hypochondriac -_- ). Like I said I feel fine overall. Just a bit worried.
Any response are appreciated : )
