Lymph nodes advice?

I’m a 22-year-old male, and as the title suggests, I’ve been experiencing swollen lymph nodes in my neck and armpits for nearly 8 years now. It began around the age of 15 when one or two nodes in my neck became swollen. After consulting with my GP, who assured me it was nothing to worry about, I didn’t give them much further thought. However, over the subsequent weeks, I noticed additional swelling in my neck and armpits, with the nodes ranging from 0.5cm to 2.5cm in size. They feel hard, painless, and movable, and their characteristics haven’t changed throughout these 7-8 years. Aside from this, I haven’t experienced any other symptoms. Any advice or assistance would be greatly appreciated.

If you have persistently swollen lymph nodes for years, seek a specialist’s opinion, undergo imaging tests like ultrasound or CT scan, consider a biopsy if necessary, maintain regular follow-ups, and communicate openly with your healthcare provider for early detection and intervention.

Persistent swollen lymph nodes warrant further investigation. Even if they’ve been present for years without change, seeking a second opinion or consulting a specialist is advisable.
