I have never been one to poke and probe around for lumps, but 3 days ago I started coming down with a cold and felt my nodes in my neck. I'm not really sure what is considered a swollen node. I haven't really paid any attention to them in the past so I don't know what is considered "normal" for me. I noticed I have a small lump under my jaw below the left side of my chin right next to my trachea. It feels pretty small (about the size of a small pea) and doesn't hurt. I concerned since I don't feel one on the other side and for the fact that it doesn't hurt. If this node was lymphoma, would it continue to get bigger, or can a cancerous node stay the same size. I have never really had lymphoma fears in the past and I'm trying to avoid googling and freaking myself out, but I'm a little worried and wondering if I need to see my doc. I just think that if it was normal, there would be one on the other side.
