Lymph node under jaw swollen, headaches, breathing difficulty. Blood test, ultrasound done. Result awaited

Hi I m 16 and my lymph nodes right under my jaw on both sides have been swollen really big like golf ball size for a few weeks now and I went to the doctor and they took my blood a few days ago but haven t told me the results they also wanted to do a ultrasound but haven t said anything so I m worried it s something big and the weird thing is I have no symptoms but head aches and some difficulty breathing but that may just be from stress I just want to know for sure what you think it is and actually after a few days it s gone down and I have no more head aches but I still think something is wrong please help.

Thanx for your query
I can feel your concerns
Enlarged lymph node have many causes
Infection and malignancy like lymphoma are most important
Do you have fever,night sweats or weight loss
Do you have any infection in mouth or sorethroat
I Advise you to consult your doctor for examination
You may need fine needle aspiration of swelling or it's biopsy for diagnoses
Wishing you good health
