Swollen Lymph Nodes

Hi,
My daughter has an appointment at the Hospital on Monday and I am wondering what to expect.  She is going because her lymph nodes have been swollen for 7 months in her head and neck.  Last Wednesday I took her in to the doctor and he said now all her lymph nodes are swollen...not only in the head adn neck, but armpits, groin and abdomen.  She has also started having nose bleeds which started around the same time the lymph nodes were noticed.  What are some less serious things that this could be?  Do the lymph nodes usually stay swollen for this long with a virus?  Any input?  Thanks

Hi.
If the nodes have been present for 7 months, you need to consider some diseases that tend to have a chronic course. Among these would be some infections which tend to be slow (such as tuberculosis and sarcoidosis). Lymph nodes may swell with viral infections as well, but do not usually persist more than a month, unless there may be recurrent infections.
