lumps on my son's neck

My son has had knots on the left side of his neck since he was 11 months old and he is 3 yrs old now. I've taken him to the doctor and all they tell me is that they are swollen lymph nodes from his body fighting off infections, but he wasn't sick. The knots haven't went away yet and they seem to be getting bigger. They are very noticeable when he turns his head to the side. I am very scared that they are more than just swollen nodes.

Get him to a different pediatrician or a pediatric hospital.  They need to do imaging and perhaps biopsies of the lymph nodes.
