    Kids lymph nodes

    Hi. Panicking a little here. My anxiety has started to flare up again.
    So basically both my kids have lymph nodes that I can feel easily in both their neck and groin.
    They are 4 and 7 and I have always been able to feel the oldest ones as long as I can remember but iv only recently noticed this on my youngest.
    He is very small and slim so I'm unsure whether this is making them more easily found but he has then in his neck and both sides of his groin. Theys smaller than a pea. Is this something I should be panicking about? Any advice would be greatly appreciated thank u xx

    Why are you poking and prodding your kids?

    Well I wouldn't put it like that. The way my health anxiety works is that i worry about anything that could happen to my children and go from 0-100. I wasnt 'poking and proding' as you put it, and as I said I noticed this years ago its something that's been playing on my mind. Was just looking for some friendly advice while I'm feeling quite anxious at the moment. 😊

    I think if they have had then years then they can't be anything sinister and maybe not even nodes at all.

    I wouldn't worry to be honest.
