    Lymph Nodes

    I can feel about two lymph nodes around my neck quite easily; which I've been able to do for maybe years. Another one by my jaw easily as well. About two more around my neck and bottom of jaw if I actually try and "dig" deeper into my skin. Basically, are you supposed to be able to feel them? I originally thought that if you were able to feel them, it meant they were too big; and thus enlarged.

    A few more questions. Do you think a lymph node on my neck that is 2 centimeters too big? Its been around that size for probably years now. Might just be me, but I'm really paranoid, and I keep thinking that its getting bigger..

    Lastly, what would happen if someone squeezed a lymph node, as if he/she was trying to pop a pimple? I would assume it would be bad, but any details? For instance, what if somehow you got hit directly on one, and it popped.

    Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

    Have your parents take you to do a doctor.

    I already did. He said it was nothing. However, I just find it strange, since most sources online make this stuff sound much more serious.

    Can anyone give any input on my questions?

    No. Now stop with the medical questions. You'll save yourself some (deserved) flaming.

    You doctor cleared up your questions. If you don't trust him, ask a second doctor's opinion on the matter. If you don't trust him/her, then I suggest some form of faith healing, magick, homeopathy, Feng Shui, tin foil pyramidal hats, or pinching your enlarged lymph node like a zit.

    Now stop with the medical questions. You'll save yourself some (deserved) flaming.
