Do I trust my doctor? (Lymphoma cancer)?
So I was at the doctors about 20 minutes ago, and he was smiling, saying it doesn’t look like anything, and that they are completely normal lymph nodes, and I asked him why do they pop out when I turn my head, and he said it’s because my lymph nodes are sitting on the tendon, and I asked why doesn’t it pop out on the left side then, and he said because we are not symmetrical. And he said if I lose weight, and I said I weight more at the night, than when I wake up. He said nothing was wrong. Do i trust him or go for another doctor, the lump is soft hasn’t grown.

Maybe you just don’t trust mainstream medical doctors. Many people do not. If your insurance pays for it or you can pay out of pocket for it, why don’t you try going to a naturopath instead? A licensed naturopath has the same basic training as a medical doctor but they don’t use surgery and prescription drugs, they use more natural healing alternatives. You sound like a sensitive, detail-oriented person who is very tuned into your body so I think an alternative practitioner might be better for you. A naturopath, homeopath, Chinese medicine practitioner, etc. These types of doctors are more holistic and more likely to take your whole ‘being’ into consideration, including your psychological state and everything else than just treat you like a organic piece of machinery which is what mainstream Western allopathic doctors tend to do, who are basically just ‘body mechanics’ in a sense. Or even go to a hypnotherapist to help deal with some of the anxieties around these issues as an adjunct

Your doctor is 100% correct in what he told you. Stop looking for an illness that you don't have.

Doesn't matter you are an idiot and will continue to believe you are sick no matter how many doctors tell you you aren't. You are a hypochondriac and very stupid.

So -- you asked your questions here 20 times. You were told to go to the doctor. Which you did. He examined you and said you were fine. Now you are asking if he was wrong.
WHY are you so determined to have lymphoma? My best friend died from it. It was horrible. Trust me, you DON'T want to have it.
(And you weigh less in the morning because you haven't eaten and you weigh yourself after you empty your bladder. Worrying weightloss is generally considered to be 10% of your body weight without trying.)

It's not a matter of trust. By all means, if you have doubts about your doctor’s evaluation, tell him you would like to get a second opinion. Surely, no sincere doctor would dissuade you from doing so. Hopefully, the value of getting a second opinion will put your mind at ease and you can come back feeling more confident about his recommendations as well.

You should trust him.
He could make a lot of money if he said it might be lymphoma and ordered a bunch of unnecessary tests. Instead he lost money by telling you the truth.

I agree with your doc, but you can always go and get a second opinion.
