frequent illness

I have been getting sick a lot lately, at least once a month. I am a 23 y/o male, in great shape, I actually box so I exercise regularly and eat healthy. Usually It is throat or chest related and accompanied by a fever. I have also been fatigued quite a bit in the past year and a half weather of not im sick. I am not sure if it is related but about a year ago my GP sent me to an ent for a lump along my jaw line (small) and she wanted me to come back in 3 months if it had not gone away but have not been able to make it back yet. It has not grown at all but I have noticed the same sort of small lumps in my groin (i know they are lymph nodes) the ones along my groin are slightly larger than the one along my jawline but still small, rubbery feeling. They seem to have been this way even before the frequent sickness and im just wondering if they could be connected. They do not fluctuate in size between being sick and being helthy and do not hurt. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks all in advance.

Re: frequent illness

Follow up on those lymph nodes.

To reduce illness in the meanwhile, it's all about handwashing. If you are in public, don't even touch your face with your hand. Touching a surface such as a doorknob and then touching your nose or mouth exposes you to any germs carried by the last person to touch it.

It sounds crazy, but it works. I developed these habits while taking crowded public transit to work, and I get sick about a tenth as often as I used to.
