Welcome to Health Care Magic:
I have to know whether you have fever
, weightless, night sweats
these indicate chronic infections, lymphoma
, and TB.
You need to be examined by the physician because the consistency and size of the swellings gives clues for the reason.Because you are on Doxycyclin for 5 months, it should shrink the swellings if it infectious. If they do not respond to antibiotics and increasing in size, if they firm, the lymph-node has to be biopsied by the surgeon. The biopsy
should be sent to pathology to know what the cause is. Also get CBC, Monospot test, HIV
, PPD (skin test).
**In growing children 2-3 cm lymph nodes (swellings) under shin and in groin is normal )**
