Patient :I am 16 years old and about a month ago I had a mole removed on my back that was atypical. My dermentologist removed the mole and the area around it and said that it was clear and not cancerous. A few weeks later I noticed 2 swollen lymph nodes near my groin and being a hard core fitness goorue I didn't think much of it. While on social media I saw a story of a girl that had similar conditions and she was diagnosed with melanoma. Should I have these swollen lymph nodes checked or and I'm working too much? One is the size of a small grape and the other a small pea and they are in the right next to one another.
