Welcome to HCM
Your suspicion could be right as they are firm and non movable. This can be confirmed by a very simple procedure called FNAC (Fine needle Aspiration cytology). In this procedure, the fluid from the lymph nodes will be aspirated and studied if any malignant change has occurred. This will help reduce your apprehension too. Depending on the investigation, further tests can be suggested to you by your consultant doctor.
