Quick question, is it normal for my left lymph node on my throat to always be bigger than the right. I have asked a doctor and they say it's normal. I have EBV and am wondering if it has to do with that. I noticed this about ten years ago. They have checked my thyroid several times and it always comes back fine. I'm just wondering if any of you know anything about this. The way to describe it is I can feel the left one but not the right one. I can only feel the right one when I have a sore throat/cold/etc.

I'm the same way, have been since I started noticing it.  However, I do not have EBV/Mono.  I was told by Two doctors that Lymph nodes are so hard to figure out, that they could have always been swollen. 
Are your tender?  Mine aren't, never have been.  Just slightly swollen.

one side of the body is larger then the other..maybe that has something to do with it and that's why the doctor sais it's normal. Second opinion's don't hurt either.
