So I've had a cold and sinus infection for around a week. My jaw was sore and I noticed a small pea sized lump. It was tender moveable and soft. Well it hard anyways. Yesterday behind my ears swelled aswell. I've been pushing on that area as I threat all the time a out cancer and lately been terrified about lymphoma. So now I'm stressing its that! I'm also terrified of the doctors or I would do the easy thing and go but I'm so scared. Could the lymph nodes just be swollen due to the old?

Anyone?????

Your lymph nodes in that area will swell to fight off an infection which you've had. All sounds perfectly normal to me.
