Painful, swollen lymph nodes on left side of body?
Yesterday I noticed that my throat was sore and that it feels like there is a lump in my throat on the left side when I swallow. My throat is also very red. But now I am very very worried because the lymph nodes in my throat, neck and groin are swollen, but only on the left side. They are very sore and they aren't hard. I haven't been feverish yet but this seems to be an infection? I am so scared. Should I see a doctor? What could this be? Please help!!! :(
