Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
You may have some enlarged lymphnodes. It can be due to reactive hyperplasia, tuberculosis, lymphoma or metastatic carcinoma. Or some soft tissue tumor like lipoma or neurofibroma. should go for fine needle aspiration cytology or biopsy of that lump.
It will give you exact diagnosis.
Then you should take treatment accordingly.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer.
Thanks for using health care magic.
Wish you a very good health.
