Do I have PGL? I'm terrified
Jun 14, 2005

How big are glands in the groin around the penis, in the armpit, or anywhere else in general vs. when swollen? I am worried I have this condition. Or am I a hypochondriac. I obsess about this daily. I am in otherwise good health, I think. Are there any way to be fairly sure? Thanks

Response from Dr. Henry

An examination and evaluation by a good primary care doctor is recommended if you are concerned about swollen lymph nodes to sort out possible causes or are they simply on the large part of the normal spectrum. KH
