yes, I know these lymph nodes are real
lymph nodes are normal parts of our body's immune system
they help filter lymphatic fluid to fight infections and help keep you healthy
just because you can feel a lymph node does not make it abnormal.
many viral infections like mononucleosis can cause lymph nodes to swell up and be tender and can cause fatigue
touching and squeezing lymph nodes will make them stay swollen longer.
your doctors are not worried about lymphoma.
I am a cancer doctor and I am not worried about you having lymphoma.
you could get a lymph node biopsy, but it will turn out benign as well.
try to not worry about your lymph nodes being cancerous
