Reassurance For Normal Lymph-Nodes:
« on: December 18, 2013, 05:05:42 PM »
I am currently having a MASSIVE lymph-node scare & found this online, so I thought I would share:

"If you have discovered a pea-sized or bean-sized node (smaller than inch or 12 mm), this is a normal lymph node. Don't look for lymph nodes, because you can always find some (especially in the neck and groin)."

Found the above on a Hospital's website. We HA people must stick together. I know I am not the only one here obsessing over their 'nodes! :speechless-smiley-004:

Great post!!!!!

I went through this about 7 months ago. Felt a pea size lymph node on my neck. When I went to gp I told him I found a lump in my neck and he looked at me with concern. But when he examined my neck he was practically laughing. He said that's just a lymph node doing what it's supposed to do. He said even a cut shaving or a little spot on your head can make it do that. He said everyone's will do it but the difference is I was wanting to find something because of my anxiety

I obsess over mine all the time. I am currently obsessing over some in my groin, but I have no idea if they are all nodes or maybe some tendons. Some feel really long and not round at all so I'm hoping those aren't nodes. My OB doctor felt around the area and said all she felt were normal nodes....
