Roger,

Yes, as AS mentioned, we have hundreds of lymph nodes throughout our bodies.

Often a local injury/infection will cause the gland to swell, as it is doing it's job of fighting off whatever is threatening the system.

If you are worried about it enough, you can see your doctor...but likely you'll be told to just watch and wait, as these things usually disappear on their own within a few weeks.

The other possibility is that you could have a benign subdermal cycst. Again, these sometimes go away on their own, or can be removed by a dermatologist with an in office procedure.

I hope you find the answers and relief you need soon. Give us an update when you can.

Thanks for replying guys smile So đenpend on the picture above we dont have lymph nodes on our middle back right? Because my lump is on the middle of my back. I know if i want to make sure i have to check it with my doctor but i panic all the time whenever i notice some thing unormal on my body and i usually bother him for something common : (

If you have had a history with health related worries, then focusing uour time and energy on our Health Anxiety self help material (in the Resources, top of the main forum page) would be beneficial for now...

...and if this doesn't get better in a few weeks, then make an appointment with your doc.😊

Peace and progress,
