Know your nodes video

This video explains how to self-check your lymph nodes. It is presented by a clinical nurse specialist, who demonstrates how to check lymph nodes in each area of the body.

This video is designed for you if you have a diagnosis of lymphoma, if you are self-monitoring for symptoms such as swollen lymph nodes. This might be because you are on active monitoring (or ‘watch and wait’) for your lymphoma, or you may have had treatment and are being vigilant for any signs of relapse.

Not everyone is comfortable checking their lymph nodes, and some healthcare professionals might discourage this for some individuals. However, some individuals feel that checking their lymph nodes can be an important part of their monitoring or self-management of their condition.

This video is designed for people who want to check their lymph nodes we hope it gives some useful guidance about how to do this effectively. It also gives guidance on when to do this, how often, and also about other symptoms to be aware of and report to your doctor if necessary.

You may like to talk to the healthcare professionals involved in your care about what they suggest – for you – about checking your lymph nodes.

If you are new to lymphoma, or you are concerned that you might have symptoms of lymphoma, you might also find this video helpful. However, please be aware that the video has been designed for people with a diagnosis of lymphoma, so you may also like to read our general introduction to lymphoma and information about possible symptoms of lymphoma.
