Swollen lymph nodes on the collar bone. Pressure behind the ear. Sinus infection?

Hello dr, For the past 3 moths I have had a few swollen lymph nodes above my collar bone. I went to my doctor as she said it was just a sinus infection , as well as seasonal allergies. I m sure it doesn t help that I poke at my lymph nodes, they feel a little tender and I have a little pressure under my ear and I feel a constant drain in my neck and pressure above my nose . It s giving me horrible anxiety because I always fear the worst. Do you think it s just allergies? Should I be worried? Please help!

Hi thanks for your question.
Lymh nodes are normally present in body and get enlarge in two conditions.
1.If there is infection in the vicinity of lymph node and Lymhoma that is cancer of lymph node.
Most common cause is infection in their vicinity.Since your supera clavicular lymph node are enlaged most probably you have infection some where in your sinuses,throat and even ear.
The best way to get you out from tension is go for FNAC (fine needle aspiration cytology) of enlarged lymh nodes to know the cause of enlargement of lymh nodes.
Hope this answers your question.
