If the swelling is really that noticeable it's probably just in the neck region. I would say that you had a sinus infection that spread to your lymph nodes and that you are being treated for it. That or an abscessed tooth. Both of which causes your lymph nodes to swell if it spreads to them.

But you would be surprised how little people notice things like that. I think it's more a self image thing. Not saying they aren't indeed swollen and visibly swollen just that most people wouldn't know the difference. Unless its goiter or mumps swollen. Kinda like a zit you think it's huge and everyone else barely notices it.

That said you shouldn't have them much longer. Mine disappeared by the second-third month of treatment. I pretty much saw them as being really noticeable but everyone I asked I had to actually show them where I was talking about for them to even notice.
