Yes. If you search hard enough, most people can find some sort of node (swollen or not).
Any time I've had my nodes checked, the doctors don't dig their fingers into my skin like us hypochondriacs to. They lightly check SK they only pay attention to ones that are significant enough to be easily palpable.
Also, are you sure you're not touching your salivary glands? I thought they were my nodes and freaked out by salivary glands will always be there (under the chin)
