Swollen gland

Patient

Q: I have a swallen gland since i was a kid, and now i'm 24! it doesn't hurt, it's round and moving and it's under my chin on the right! when i get sick it get's bigger and it hurts. last winter i got badly sick from a virus in my tonsils, 41c fever and white liquid all over them!when that happened, 3 more glands got swollen behind the right ear and under, at the bottom of left ear and the left one under my chin!all hurted badly, but when i started getting better they started falling and till now only the one behind the right ear was left to leave completely, (except from the permanent one). but they started sawlling again and i don't like it!they don't hurt, none of them, and i feel fine!(buck when i was really sick they tested me for all the possibilities , hepatitis , HIV , and a lot more viruses, but they didn't find anything ), so, is it possible for the glands to stay like that forever?swelling and falling whenever?
