worrying about lymph nodes

im 14 years old. so ive had 4 lymph nodes in the back of my head that have been i guess "swollen" for 3 months, they are painless, they don't move and they dont really change size or texture. also i think i hav a scalp infection becuase ive had dandruff adn terrible itching for almost a year now. im a huge hypochondriac and its been freaking me out. i havent lost any weight, ive been checking my temperature everyday and i dont have a fever and i dont have night sweats. Also, ive seen my pediatrician and she said to stop worrying. and wen i was still worrying i asked my cousin(who is a pediatric oncologist) to look at them and she said its fine and they are swollen probably from the scalp infection. but now im freaking out because i keep researching online and its just making my hypochondria worse.
thanks for responding
