Hello, I have a lot of palpable lymph nodes all over my body and I would like to know if these are normal. I have like 2 lymph nodes in submandibular area, 1 in submental area, 4 lymph nodes in neck (2 on one side and 2 on another), 2 under ears (one under left and one under right ear) and 4 in groin (2 on one side and 2 on other). Almost all of the nodes are soft and movable, except one submandibular node under a tooth with cavity, which is hard and immobile. All nodes are <1 cm except 2 lymph nodes in neck where tonsils are located which are 1.5-2 cm. I think those nodes near tonsils are called jugulodigastric nodes. Also I have 2 nodes in groin which are also 1.5-2 cm in size. To be honest, Im 14 year old teen male, Im 163 cm tall and weigh 42 kg (I have celiac disease), so I think this might be normal, since Im skinny. I dont have any other symptoms except mild fatigue and anxiety. I dont lose weight (I actually gained a little bit), no fever, no night sweats (except when I cover myself with a lot of blankets). What Im most scared of is lymphoma, although I think it might be toxoplasmosis because I have a cat. Still, it might be nothing but my imagination, since, as I said, I am a anxiety sufferer. BTW I have this lymph nodes and mild fatigue for almost a year and when it started I did complete blood count which showed nothing abnormal. I was searching on google for possible causes and it just gave me more and more anxiety. So what could it be?
