Oncology Questions? Ask an Oncologist for Answers ASAP
This is Dr. David
it is very common to be able to feel 1-2cm squishy mobile lymph nodes in your neck and under your neck.
you have 60-100 lymph nodes in your neck in the cervical and posterior cervical lymph node chain, there normally as part of your body's immune system to filter lymphatic fluid and to help keep you healthy.
I would trust your doctors if they think your lymph nodes are normal.
you can get more testing like an ultrasound of your neck
but I bet this will show normal lymph nodes in your neck.
even if a lymph node doesn't show color to it, it is normal, since it is below the skin.
you could have a painful infected ingrown hair or a subascious cyst on your head which is a painful lump.
let em know if you have questions.
then ask your doctor for an ultrasound of your neck to get a better look at these lumps to see what they are.
if your doctor won't order you an ultrasound, you should find another doctor who will order an ultrasound for you.
