    Arrow Can you feel the lymph nodes on your neck?

    I wonder if this is normal.
    When I examine the side of my neck (where the blood vessels are) then I can feel a lot of small knots under the skin. Some of them don't really feel like knots because they are not round and rather oblong but still very small, maybe 3-4mm and they are also flat. I have at least 4 of them on every side of the neck. I wonder what this is. They are also not soft but rather feel cartilaginous.
    I have been having them for years and they aren't changing their size but I also get new ones. This is really starting to annoy me. Could these things be lipomas? Because I have lipomas on the arms and also 1 on the neck but usually lipomas feel different. They are rather round and not flat and also don't feel cartilaginous and they are also a bit bigger than these small cartilaginous knots which I have on each side of my neck. I know exactly that if I go with this to a doctor he will not be able to tell me what it is and cutting it out will leave an ugly scar. I'm not keen on this either.

    They're lymph nodes and they'll change size based on your white blood cell output or something along those lines. I check em to see if I'm gonna get sick or not then down some airborne if so.

    If they're hard and small, they're probably not lipomas.

    Having perpetually swollen lymph nodes isn't a good sign. It seems like you've become a bit obsessed about the issue though, so you might be more sensitive to and conscious of them.

    Anyways, see what the doc has to say!

    well the neck is where the lymph nodes empty excess tissue fluid back into the blood stream. so i wouldn't be suprised if there was a high concentration of them in your neck.

    i have to learn this crap for biology

    so you mean you can also constantly feel them?

    how many of them can you feel? and how do they feel in your case? do they feel like pinheads? are they soft and round? or are they also rather flat,oblong and cartilaginous?

    A few days ago I spent too much time examining one of them which I discovered only recently which is rather on the back of my neck and I wanted to see if it is attached to the muscle or not and tried to grab it with my two fingers and after that it became a bit bigger for a few days and now it seems to be getting smaller again but it still won't vanish and I know exactly that this thing has not been there before.
    But you don't simply get new lymph nodes all of a sudden this is why I think they might be some sort of lipomas.
    The most frustrating thing is when you go to a doctor and have such strange knots under the skin and he can't tell you what it is. Usually they can never really tell you for sure what it is and simply tell you not to worry. But when you have such knots and even get more of them then it's logical that you worry.
