lemme start by saying, I am new to this forum, when i first came across the site, i couldnt beleive my eyes, i was so happy to see that i am not the only one suffering from all these phobias, and have constant (extreme) anxiety about my health, and kids health. i looked through some of these topics, it was like- i could have written them myself, i've gone through what so many of you have posted- omg, scary to see!
now, about my problem. couple of months ago, i noticed a small candy shape bump on my sons neck-visible only when he turned his head to side. naturally, i panicked! the lump was moveable, and not very hard. i ran to an urgent care in my neighborhood, he right away assured me that its nothing, just a normal lymph node. but, like some of you can relate, i wasnt calm about this and took him to my regular pediatrician next day- he also said its normal lymph node. 2 days later, my anxiety got the better of me, and i decided i dont trust the first 2 doctors, and i went to third one- she also said its normal lymph node. luckily, i calmed down and stopped feeling it, just occcasionally to make sure it didnt get bigger.
Now, couple of months later, my anixety triggered again, and......... im nervous about it! it hasnt really gotten bigger, but not smaller either! when i felt his neck (poor child) i felt another one (right underneath jaw), that im sure was also there a couple of months ago! hes all the time acting fine, feeling ok.
NOW WHAT? should i go back to doctor? should i just ignore?
any of you had such experience? any of you have kids that just have palpable lymph nodes?
PLEASE CALM ME, IM SO NERVOUS ABOUT IT!!!!!
