although the lymph nodes in my throat are the same size, one side of my neck is swollen, and that side of my throat is slightly itchy.  I am so scared this is throat cancer or lymphoma or something.  I am not sure if I should rush to the doctor yet or hold off but now I can't think about anything else!

I had swelling in my throat last week. I was convinced it was cancerous. I went to the clinic twice and went to see an ENT specialist. He scoped my throat and saw nothing, felt no masses. His best guess was acid reflux, an allergic reaction or a panic disorder. I took benadryl allergy yesterday and it helped the swelling, but knocked me out cold so I slept for 5 hours in the afternoon. Do you have any tongue symptoms? Mine was starting to feel swollen and numb in the back

What you all are describing sounds to me like globus hystericus from acid totally benign but very scary. Its due to acid reflux.

it's more of an itching...seems to have gone down a bit.  hopefully just allergies or acid reflux, as people suggested.  thanks for the help!
