The lump on my left side has gone down somewhat, though at a slower pace than I'd like it to be - meaning that I'd touch it and think, has it gone down? Or has it just stayed the same?
I'd say it's about 1cm large now. It's softer, tender now and no longer feel like a ball, rather has a fatty tissue sort of feeling.
I have also discovered another lump on the exact same place opposite! I first noticed it a week after I had my left lump, and it's small, around 0.5cm, slightly firmer, more like a ball and protrudes more, though it's harder to feel. It hasn't changed much, I think.
My doctor said if the lump doesn't go away in 6 weeks, he'd check it again and it's already been what, four weeks, though I am out of the country and will not return for another 9 weeks. I try not to prod it hard, only gently touch it, but still the obsession is to check it everyday.
Sigh... does anyone think I should get an ultrasound or something, just to be sure? It is rather small, so I'm not sure if the u/s will pick it up.
In any case, I also want to ask, does anyone know whether you should check for lymph nodes while your neck is straight, or while you bend your neck? Is it customary for lymph nodes to be more pronounced and palpatable when you bend your head forwards? because my lumps can't really be felt if I am sitting up straight...
Thanks again. :)
