Lumps in the neck

I've had lump like structures in my neck for almost 6-7 years.The biggest one is about 2-3 cm long, slippery to touch.I also have one above my collarbone.I suspected it to be lymphoma and talked to my parents about it but they told me it was nothing and I was just being my paranoid, worrisome self.(this happened a couple of years ago and I was still a kid back then).I didn't think much about it at that time. But a few days back I stumbled upon an article about lymphoma and I can't help but feel worried about my situation.I also think that the lumps in my neck have stopped growing. I haven't experienced any symptoms like night sweats,fatigue, fever etc.I don't know what to do. Can someone please help me? Do you guys think it's alarming?

Re: Lumps in the neck

If you've had them that long it's unlikely to be lymphoma. You'd likely be gone by now without treatment. I don't say that to be unkind but to reassure you.

Normal lymph nodes are often easily palpable, especially if you are thin. Lots of common not too serious things can cause them to swell- a cut, a cold, an ear infection, etc. I've even heard that wearing very tight ponytails can cause them. If you are still in school ask the school nurse to have a look if only to ease your mind.
