I have read mixed things about them and
am confused. I have heard that lymph nodes
also swell when you have colds, sore
throats, ear infections etc. I currently have a cold not sure if it's just a cold or hiv symptom but I have probably 2 little pea or bean sized lymph nodes that can be felt on one side of my neck which is also the side where the throat is sore. They don't look overly swollen/enlarged.
