  • lymph nodes are everywhere in the body, and it actually is fairly common. But if it would make you more comfortable, its better to be safe than sorry. Go ahead for that second opinion. Its not a waste of time to get that piece of mind, especially when it comes to your child.

  • We have lumph nodes throughout our bodies. But if you are in doubt or in need of peace of mind, then check out Web MD or seek a 2nd opinion. Hope she feels better soon! :)

  • swollen lymph nodes is the throat. my youngest son had that a month or so ago. Was tested for strep throat, did'nt have it.

  • No, I haven't not in the tummy area, the neck area yes. I would get a 2nd opinion for sure & ultrasound. I can imagine it is a little scary when you come across something like that and I am sure she is okay, GL to ya's & go see a specialist for sure.
