Swollen lymph nodes for well over a year, doctors not concerned, any thoughts?

Edited , 3 users are following.

a little over a year ago i had a very bad upper respiratory tract infection. following this 8 lymph nodes are now palpable under my jaw and (mostly) on the left side of my neck. the plapable ones are under a cm but Ultrasound has shown several more deeper in over a cm! Bloodwork was all normal besides mildly low B12 and slightly low WbC (which is normal for me dr even said its common in young people) ive been getting routine Us's and theyve actually noted some getting smaller (one used to be 2.5 cm and is now 1.7 cm) still i worry a little. i know given the timeframe and no growth the odds are tiny its something bad. Just want to know if anyone else had something similar
