My son had some swollen lymph nodes in the back of his head

Customer Question

My son had some swollen lymph nodes in the back of his head and in his neck 6 months ago, the dr said it was because he was sick. Now he hasn't been sick since then and I just found 4 more in his groin. What can be causing this?

Hello, Sorry about this issue. If the nodes are visible, painful to touch and growing in size, you need to get his evaluation and tests done. Sometimes due to minor skin infections, nodes of the area drained by lymph vessels get enlarged and then remain so even when infection is cured. They are not harmful but ones still continuing to get larger need to be biopsied.
