lymph nodes

Hi, I was wondering if it is normal to be able to feel your lymph nodes in your neck even if they are not swollen.

yeah pretty normal, most lymph nodes are superficial, between muscle and skin, sometimes thinner people can palpate them easier. i dont recomend pressing too much on them. they may swell..probably not..

Oh thank you, and yes, I have been poking around at them.

I agree with Tony. Pressing them can keep them in a constant state of agitation.
Further, from what I have been told, that some times after an infection, nodes may not go down to pre-infection size.

Sounds to me that you have nothing to worry about.
