    It can mean a number of things from the common cold to other disorders

    The doctor will investigate and hopefully get a diagnosis and can be treated with medication or other means

      No not at all

      Infections can cause lymph nodes to be painless or painful

      I just read your original post and an ulcer wouldn't make your lymph nodes swell

      Lymphoma which I think you are concerned about having is a more complex issue but with all the ones that I have looked at have only 1 swelling and it can be easily diagnosed by a specialist by having blood tests and also a small biopsy

      But. I Know it's easy to say but try not to worry and hopefully you will be looked at soon and get to the bottom of your problem
