Swollen, tender, enlarged lymph nodes, general bruise feeling on body. Symptom of lymphoma?

I used to drink a lot in my 20 s. I am now 31 and don t drink that much anymore. However, nowadays when i DO drink too much, I wake up the next day feeling like I m going to die! The scariest part is my swollen neck glands/lymph nodes - they get tender and enlarged. I also feel kinda bruised around my shoulders/neck area too - and general bruising feeling all over my body. I ve heard that swollen glands after drinking is a symptom of lymphoma . Should I see my doctor about this, or is this something that is relatively common and is just your body s way of telling you to cut it out and quit trying to be 25! help?...

Welcome to HCM.

First of all to much drinking is not good for health.

It might be infectious lymphadenitis.
Lymphadenitis is the inflammation and/or enlargement of a lymph node. Most cases represent a response to benign, local, or generalized infections (usually viral).[1] Lymphadenitis may affect a single node or a localized group of nodes (regional adenopathy) and may be unilateral or bilateral.
Hope I have provided the information you needed.

I think you may have some infection in the draining area of the lymphatics. It need to examined for exact diagnosis. I advice you to ENT surgeon for help.

i don;t think it is lymphoma, it appears to be infectious lymphadenitis.
Wish you good health. Take care.
