I am not worried about cancer
lymph nodes are part of your body's immune system
and it is normal for them to swell up to help fight off infections and to keep you healthy.
your slight sore throat and mouth ulcers are enough to cause swollen reactive neck lymph nodes to help fight off infections.
you also need to stop squeezing and pressing on the lymph node as this will continue to keep the node swollen.
let me know if you have questions.
these lymph nodes can take weeks to return back to normal size.
lympocytes and WBC cells are in the lymph nodes making lots of antibodies to help fight off infections
to keep you healthy and to also remember prior infections to prevent future infections.
don't let your anxiety get out of control with worry.
you have to give the node more time to shrink back down in size.
you have to stop pressing and squeezing on the node.
you have seen several experienced doctors already who are not worried about cancer.
