?symptoms of lymphoma

I first noticed my occipital lymph node was enlarged a year ago. It is now hard, i dont think its mobile, its stayed the same size, about 1 inch.
I have also noticed another lump down the size of my neck and i think i felt another near my clavical bone.
I also get quite itchy all over my body expecially during the evening, and feel quite fatigued for a while now.
I will arrange to get my gp to check them out but wanted to know what your initial thought was?
Thanks Gemma

I forgot to say that I am well in myself. And the lymph nodes are not painful.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Your lymph nodes are not looking clinically significant. You should do peripheral smear and ultrasound neck to rule out organic cause.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
