    lymph nodes

    Hi there,

    8 months ago I noticed a pea sized lump on the back of my neck (right side, about one inch beneath my head). Since then (within the past 2 months I think) another lump (much smaller... only a few mm) appeared beneath it.

    I have since realized I have a lot of pea sized and bean sized lymph nodes in my groin area, and some very small ones in my arm pit, and even above my collar bone.

    I had my doctor feel them and he said they are nothing to worry about (he even made me feel some of his in his neck and said he has had them there, and on his groin, for years). But I am still worried. I had a CBC and my blood was fine, I had a CT Scan and my spleen and liver and everything was fine. I also had a chest x-ray and that was fine. I finally got another doctor to refer me for a biopsy, which I will be having next week.

    I am skinny (about 5'2'' and 105 lbs) so that may explain why I can feel the groin and armpit ones. But it is the one on the back of my neck that has me worried.

    I am wondering if anyone out there has any comments on this.

    Thank you!
