Symptom Checker

Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.

Swollen Glands (General)

You have generalized lymphadenopathy that has not been explained thus far. Since you don't describe other symptoms, this is likely a temporary reaction to a viral infection and the lymph node swelling should go away over the next seven to ten days. If it does not completely go away, call your doctor to arrange an evaluation.

If the lymph node swelling has already been there for three weeks or more, don't wait, contact your doctor's office today.
