Lymph Nodes?

I'm a 20 years old male. From 3 months ago i started having a swollen lymph node in my neck. The swollen lymph node was also accompanied by extreme fatigue, sore throat and a low grade fever. i was put on antibiotics which did help the symptoms to go away but it never healed the swollen lymph node. From the very same time i started having a general discomfort feeling in my inner tights and under my scrotum. Its not really painful its just feels the skin has become sensitive. i couldn't find a swollen lymph node that is noticeable to the eyes but im assuming it might be from inside and its not visible yet? I got the same feeling in my armpits too. I'm really worried about having lymphoma and its been giving me so much anxiety lately. I have done 2-3 CBC blood tests in the past 4 months and they all came back normal.

Break down of symptoms:

- Enlarged Neck Lymph Node on the Right Side
- Feeling of discomfort under my armpits and under my scrotum but no sign of enlargement of lymph nodes

Any help would be appreciated.
God Bless

You could certainly consult your doctor about the areas of discomfort you are having (thighs, scrotum, underarms), but the swollen lymph node in your neck is not a cause for great concern. It arose at a time when you had a fever and sore throat, which is its job.

After an infection  has resolved, it often takes a long time for lymph nodes to go down, and sometimes they never regain their previous size.  

Best wishes...

Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Discomfort in armpits and in groin and scrotum is most likely to be due to sweat dermatitis. This could also be the reason that despite the healing of sore throat, the lymph node swelling is persisting. Wear loose cotton clothes and avoid tight fitting clothes. You can also use an astringent lotion. Take regular baths and keep the area dry. You can also take an antiallergic for a day or two and see. If still the symptoms persist consult a doctor.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
