Swollen lymph nodes on my right side of neck

For the last 2 months i have had swollen lymph nodes in my neck went to the doctors twice once they did a mono test and strep throat test all came back negative but they still have me antibotics.. THe lymph nodes were still swollen so went back a week later they did a chest xray said everything was fine it was probaly viral infection and to wait now it has been 3 weeks atfter that so now 3 months that i have noticed i have had this and they are still swollen and sometimes have a earache in both ears... Does anyone have any clue on what this can be?

Re: Swollen lymph nodes on my right side of neck

If you're having pain in your ears it sounds like there is some sort of infection going on (could by viral or bacterial). This would explain the swollen lymph nodes. Also, even if you have gotten rid of an infection, your nodes can remain swollen for some time after. So if you feel fine otherwise, and the doctors didn't seem worried, then I'd give it more time... to see if they begin to shrink. However, if you're having pain in your ears, a fever, congestion, etc... then go back to the doctor. If it's bacterial an antibiotic will help. If it's viral then you'll just have to wait it out.
