Hi all, so I'm due for my yearly physical examination tomorrow, and recently I have found two enlarged lymph nodes on my neck and behind my jaw/below the ear. Both are painless, about the size of a small marble and soft and rubbery to the touch. I'm also a 24 year old white male with a history repeated of Epstein-Bar Virus infections (twice). So naturally, reading up on possible causes is making my anxiety go through the roof because I seem to check quite a few of the boxes that put me at further risk; albeit they are only slight elevated risks. In terms of other symptoms, that's hard to pin down because I suffer from depression (remission) and anxiety so fatigue is kind of a common feeling for me. I also can't tell about my appetite because I'm on Wellbutrin and Remeron.
I am going to ask the doctor about it, I'm just anxious about doing so becuase I don't know how long my lymph nodes have been swollen and if I'm actually experiencing other symptoms. Any advice?
P.S. I'm an American, if that relates to anything, I'm under my parents insurance luckily.
