What are lymph nodes supposed to feel like?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I can feel multiple lymph nodes (I think), mostly underneath my chin and in my neck. I don't think they are enlarged because they are the size of a pea, but what worries me is that they are hard. I always read that it is a bad sign when they are hard. I don't have any other complaints and don't know if they have always been there or not.

At first I thought maybe this is just what lymph nodes feel like, but my girlfriend doesn't have these small hard balls anywhere in her body. Should I go see a doctor about it or is this normal? 

Thank you very much.

When was the last time you were at the dentist?

I was there for a checkup at the beginning of March, the dentist checked all of my glands in my neck... touched so lightly it tickled.
