Enlarged lymph node for about 3 months

Posted , 2 users are following.

I'm worried and I get bad aniexty.  I've had enlarged lymth node for a few months I can feel it it feels big doctors think it's small I had a scan a few weeks ago they said healthy lymph node all looks normal one was 3 cm.....  Im very worried I feel it's more serious I keep touching it about ten times  a day.  Doctors say my aniexty is causing this other people can feel it like family. . ...  Does this sound serious to you
