Swollen lymph node on side of neck for nearly two years?

I’ve had a swollen lymph node on the right side of my neck for nearly two years now. I freaked out because I didn’t remember getting sick when the node showed up. Doctors weren’t concerned, they said it was a healthy lymph node and that it will shrink eventually. Well it didn’t. To this day, it’s still the same size. It’s unnoticeable and I can only feel it if I turn my neck left (node is on right side). It is rubbery (moves a little if I push it) and small and hasn’t grown. It may have shrunk just a bit? But maybe it didn’t. Either way, it isn’t normal size. Call me crazy, but could that mean lymphoma/leukemia? I don’t have any symptoms besides the swollen node.

    I don't have  lymphoma or /leukemia, but I have had  a somewhat large swollen lymph node underneath my jaw bone for  the last 7 years. It doesn't get any bigger; nor does it get any smaller -- it's just there.

    If it's on the neck, it's probably a tonsil. I would like to examine it. ❤️❤️❤️

    Everything you post is just attention whoring idiocy.  If you honestly had this problem that long and haven't seen a doctor about it you are really too stupid to be allowed to pollute the gene pool any further than your mere presence already does.

      If you don't like being called out as an idiot stop posting stupid questions.

    Without being rude if it went untreated for 2 years and was cancer you would be dead by now - long time ago I had same on neck and after various scans and fine needle biopsy and blood tests I was diagnosed with underactive thyroid and type 2 diabetes so go back and speak to your doctor. Good Luck
