  • Very scared!! I have 3 Swollen lymph nodes on bikini line


    I am really freaked out. I found 3 swollen lymph nodes on my bikini line a few days ago. They are all about the size of grapes. One is sore, but two are not. I am petrified with fear after reading some of the things I've found online. I went to the dr and was given an antibiotic called doxycycline for STDS. I was told if they don't start to go down by next week that it means something more serious is going on. I know I don't have HIV, as I was just tested for that. I do have a gyno appt for Monday to get a test for other STDS, but until then I know I'm going to continue to worry about possible cancer. Also, I do have a small benign cyst on my upper labia, on my left side, which is the same side that the swollen lymph nodes are on. If ANYONE out there has any experience with something like this or is a dr please let me know so I can calm down a little. There is so much conflicting info online that I don't know what to think. Thank you.
