swollen lymp nodes

I have 2 swollen lymph nodes in my neck.  I have not been tested for Hepatitis C but i was wondering if with hepatitis there would be localized or general lymphademy.  Would lymph nodes be swollen at all? anyone notice these symptoms?

I have 2 swollen lymph nodes on the left side and I have been diagnosed with Hep C. From what I have read, the swollen lymph nodes, are symptom of Hep C but could also be symptoms of many other things as well. Hope that helps some.....

did you have swollen lymph nodes anywhere else in body or just two on your side?

Not that I can tell; there are only just the two - Best as I can tell by feeling them with my fingertips, one is under the left side of my jaw and the other somewhat at the base of my neck on the left side as well. Pictures I have seen on the internet appear to suggest there are "groups" of "clusters" of nodes? so whether these lumps are actually one each or one cluster each I am not sure. But they are tender and painful, especially if I twist my head to the right

I have them on my neck also.... and more under my armpits... since I started treatment - I have one more on my breast.... let me know what you find out. I have been to 3 doctors and they can't tell me why.  Keep us posted!
Take care!
