Hodgkin's lymphoma, scared please help?
« on: April 28, 2014, 04:46:51 PM »
For the past year or so I have been having occasional (not every night) severe night sweats, I also recently have lost about a stone in weight cos I don't really have an appetite.
About 6 weeks ago I noticed a small, pea sized lump on the right side of my neck. I got my dr to feel it and she said it might have been caused by a zit I have on my neck, but the zit has gone now and although the lump hasn't gone it's still there. I have noticed another at the left side too. I'm so worried that this could be Hodgkin's. What do you think?

I think you are fine. Really. I do.

I have the same fear of hodgkins, yet I have about 75% of the symptoms. I completely understand where you are coming from, and if you are sincerely worried about it, then go to your doctor, get some reassurance.

But what can I say? I've been to four and still can't get over the feeling that I have it!

Good luck, and try not to worry too much. I will worry enough for the both of us about myself  :spineyes:
