How To Treat Swollen Lymph Nodes In My Neck?

I have 7 swollen lymph nodes in my neck/jaw area and 5 swollen lymph nodes in my groin area. Is this a matter that I should be extremely concerned about? The Lymph Nodes are somewhat hard in my neck and rather immovable based on my judgement. My concern is that I have this many swollen lymph nodes. I thought it was only normal to have a couple swollen during infections? Please help. Thank you.

Thanks for contacting HCM with your health concerns

I am sorry to hear that you have several large lymph nodes in your neck and groin areas. These are not normal findings. I recommend that you seek medical attention to determine the cause of the enlarged nodes. Mononucleosis may cause enlarged lymph nodes as well as other infections. But there could also be some blood born diseases like lymphoma that cause enlarged lymph nodes.

Please proceed to your doctor for additional testing and evaluation
