(repost) Neck lump?? (pic included) thyroid/lymphoma?
5th January i could feel swelling (pushing/pressure) sensation in my (right side) neck, i had been having mild chest pains for the past month also which forced me to quit smoking jan 1st....(after 10yrs) it also is not sore.
so i went to the doc. i got chest xray, cbc, pft and ecg all came back within normal range...even thyroid is normal. he was happy to send me on my way despite "the swelling" saying it was probably reactive. i hadn't been ill for months. so i asked for referal to ENT.
ENT appointment finally came for end of April <what a waiting list that was> swelling still there..a little bigger maybe....no lump per say just feels harder than opposite side of neck.
Doctor had a feel, stuck a camera up my nose and looked around throat etc (interesting experience, lol). she referred me for an ultrasound just to make sure nothing is being missed.
ULTRASOUND yesterday...swelling has gotten a little bigger...he held over alot of places on my right side neck and did alot of typing on his little computer, lol!! have to wait for a phone call/letter for my results.
still not sore, just occasionally aches.
anyone been through the same thing or similar?? i'm worried about LYMPHOMA but the only other possible symptom i have is crazy itching, especially my left side chest (occasionally) and legs (practically all the time, worse at night), which i often scratch til i bleed
or possible thyroid?? even though cbc came back normal
everything normal on nose/throat cam
i'm nearly 27
not worried....had months to prepare, lol
