new here, possible swollen lymph nodes, lymphoma fears
« on: May 23, 2014, 01:36:59 AM »
Hi everybody! This is my first time posting here so I hope I'm getting everything right.  I've stalked this website for years.  I'm a definite hypochondriac, have been since I was 11, I'm now 20.  Lately, I've been mainly worried about melanoma but now I'm on to lymphoma. The reason for my concern is that I have a couple of what I think are lymph nodes in between my stomach and groin area like right in between my hip bones, that are very large and I can feel them if I push and dig around really hard.  They're painless,very mobile, kind of rubbery, and probably a little smaller than a quarter.  They're not visible and can't be felt without really pushing for them.  I first noticed them enlarged about two years ago.  I also have stomach pain and nausea quite frequently, though I've had that for years.  I had a friend's grandfather die suddenly of lymphoma and so I'm pretty panicked.  I have no other symptoms, can't afford to see a doctor unless it's a real emergency, and am really trying to stay away from Google.  Can anybody help me?

Welcome to anxietyzone. Self diagnosis and speculation does not really help. I would see a physician
to remove all doubt and give yourself peace of mind.

Nothing you're describing sounds alarming to me, but I'm not a doctor.  You should probably either see a doctor about that or a doctor about your anxiety.
