Quick question.....do all persistenly swollen lymph nodes need to be biopsied? In the case of myself, a 26 year old male in good health, non smoker etc. with NO B SYMPTOMS.....would you suggest a biopsy? There are 4 nodes in the submandibular region, left sided (suprclavicular LN negative), non-tender, mobile, firm. They've been there for over a year now. I feel fine, but no the significance of persistenly swollen LN. Would you suggest a biopsy?
Also, HIV negative.
