enlarged lymph nodes can be from irritation if you are rubbing them or feeling them constatnly
or if they are reactive lymph nodes swelled up to help fight off infection.

a few mm growth in one or two dimensions usually is not a worry.
stress can make you worried about lymph nodes containing lymphoma, even after you have had a biopsy which showed no lymphoma.
no. lymph nodes are naturally there if you have stress or hormones or not
everyone has lymph nodes in the groin area
stress can cause you to touch and feel and rub the nodes which can cause them to swell up.
your biopsy of the nodes showing no lymphoma rules out lymphoma
I am a cancer doctor.

I know what normal and not normal is.
your lymph nodes are normal.
get your lymph nodes cut out.
I bet they will not show lymphoma.
