I also want to add that ganglions i felt are very movable and not hard
Expert:  Dr. David replied 4 months ago.

I am a cancer doctor.

yes, it is normal to feel soft movable lymph nodes 5-10mm in size above and below the clavicular lymph nodes. these lymph nodes are normal and are part of your body's immune system.

they are benign and help you fight off infections and help to keep you healthy.

you should not be concerned about the blood tests or the lymph nodes.

you don't need a biopsy of your lymph nodes.

ultrasound is enough.

you don't have to worry
