    Seems like this is a popular thing in people with health anxiety! Ive gone through it myself and so has my best mate. I found a swollen lymph node on my neck, worried myself sick with it thinking i had cancer, doctor had a look at it and said its nothing to worry about but wouldnt beleive him. Anyway that was two years ago, the lymph node is still there but not grown any bigger, the doctor said something lymph nodes just swell from been infected and then stay swollen and looks like that was the case for mine. My best mate had it too but he demaded answers so he went to the extent of having a biopsy on his, all came back clear, his too was just randomly swollen. ive got another one on my hip too! ahha as you can see its quite common to feel the odd lymph node so i wouldnt worry too much but just keep an eye on it.
