How can you tell when you have swollen lymph nodes?!

Question: How can you tell when you have swollen lymph nodes.?
That sounds really stupid, but I can't tell if they look different than usual...both sides of my neck under my jaw are really tender and sore and I noticed the pain kind of suddenly. Does this mean I have swollen lymph nodes, or do you actually have to see a lump.?Health Question & Answer
