I've had swollen lymph nodes in my head and back of neck for 8 months now. I have seen my reg dr, ENT, dermo and an oncologist (just to get variety of opinions). All of them do not seem concerned as I don't really have any other symptoms and all the nodes are small (around 1cm) and have not changed much, besides sometimes being a bit smaller than 1cm. They think my nodes swollen are actually due to bad acne I had on my face and dermatitis I get on my scalp.
My question is I have seen on some posts that itching is a symptom of lymphoma. I have noticed some itching lately but I thought maybe it was just allergies or dry skin. It isn't severe, and it's generalized, on my arms and legs mostly. It comes and goes also. I'm just curious if anyone else has had this or has any ideas on if this could be a red flag?
I had an ultrasound done recently on my lymph nodes and the ENT Dr said they all appeared benign and nothing worrisome. But after reading how itching is a common lymphoma symptom, I'm getting a little anxious now.
