I have had what i believe to be swollen lymph nodes on the front of my neck, the back of my head, behind my left ear, and in my groin area for about 2 or 3 years now. I have gone to doctors and they all tell me that these bumps are just part of me and I should not worry about them because they aren't too big, (Reaching maybe 1.2 centimeters) and they have been on me for so long. I guess I'm just reluctant to take my doctor's suggestion on my bump issue because I have never heard of anyone else having bumps on them for as long as me... If anyone has ever heard of anyone in this situation please reassure me.
