Lymph nodes under skin

I am 19 years of age, and recently (today) felt around my body, like you do and I felt some nodes in my groin and armpits on both sides. I was totally scared but I told my parents about it and I was taken to the Doctors. I had some recent blood work done anyway, and everything is fine but my Doctor has said that enlarged nodes (and they are only like the size of a pea or slightly bigger) could be a sign of something sinister. He has said that he is going to get a biopsy of it done with a needle at the hospital and get it checked out if they haven't gone away. I'm healthy otherwise, and have not had any other problems really. I'm just so scared that it is lymphoma's and what I was wondering is that if it is, can it be cured even if it has spread?

Thank you. I hope someone will reply only i'm worrying like mad.
