Could it possibly be lymphoma
Expert:  Dr.Sumanth replied 13 days ago.
Thank you for the information.
I am glad to assure you that there is nothing suggestive of lymphoma here.
It might be due to reactive lymphadenopathy.
This is extremely common in general population and you need not worry about it.
Many times simple innocuous viral infections also cause this type of lymph node enlargement which gets better by itself in 6 weeks to 3 months time.
As such I can assure you that nothing serious is going on and you can just leave it alone and move forward.
But if you develop symptoms like - prolonged fever/ unintentional weight loss/ loss of appetite/ rash/ bone pains/ pallor or spontaneous bruising/ or sudden increase in lymph node size and the lymph node becoming immobile then you approach your primary care physician for further evaluation of this probable lymph node enlargement please.I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you today!Is there anything else where I can be of assistance to you in this regard please. We can continue here until you are satisfied, simply use the reply box and let me know.Kind regards ***** ***** Sumanth Amperayani

It's long standing and the lymphadenopathy may or may not be due to that.
