Thank you doctor,another question can reactive lymph nodes always go back to the same size because I'm unsure if it's coming back or has gone from being really big and been at this size all along
Expert:  Dr. David replied 5 months ago.

yes, reactive lymph nodes can go away and come back the same size.

it sounds like your anxiety symptoms are making you doubt yourself.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I think so to doctor,can they also scar in turns of not going back to its original size? Or go from big to small and stay at a smaller size
Expert:  Dr. David replied 5 months ago.

reactive lymph nodes can do many things. they can change size up and down

but the size will not be dangerous and

reactive lymph nodes are not dangerous for you.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Because before it was hugely big and it went down in size and I think it's stayed at a much smaller size,but I'm in doubt because I'm unsure if it's always been at this smaller size and only just nocied today,or its coming back if so what's the rate they grow so I can keep a eye on it
Expert:  Dr. David replied 5 months ago.

you don't have to keep an eye on it

this will only worsen your anxiety symptoms

you should leave the reactive lymph node alone

and let it do its job

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I was feeling very ill last week,just felt very weak and had a panic attack
Expert:  Dr. David replied 5 months ago.

yes, you need treatment for your anxiety symptoms to help decrease these panic attacks.

you don't need more worry of reactive lymph nodes to worsen your anxiety symptoms.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
lymph nodes don't always go back to its original size
Expert:  Dr. David replied 5 months ago.

for reactive lymph nodes they will go back.

you need to stop touching the lymph node.

this can cause them to stay swollen in size.
