ENT APPOINTMENT TOMORROW & IM NERVOUS!!
« on: June 20, 2014, 01:21:55 AM »
I have some enlarged lymph nodes on the right side of my neck that I noticed a year ago.... I just had an appointment with my family doctor she sent me for blood test and ultra sound... everything came OK with the exception that the 3 nodes are about 20 mm according to ultrasound report so doc wants me to see an ear nose throat specialist.

I read  while back about a lady who found out she had cancer in her nodes (stage 1) when she was sent to an ent she had it biopsy and it was cancer despite her tests coming back normal.... soooooo I am terrified I will have it too!!! I can't calm down tonight about it... and my family is sick of hearing it from me :( just need some reassurance

If they've been there for a year without change you're fine.

It's so much easier to apply logic to things going on with someone else!  But seriously, lymphoma tumors get big and don't take a year to grow slightly if at all.  Can't hurt to get 'em checked out but I highly doubt you have anything to worry about.

I went he didnt do a biopsy he felt them and said if it was "something evil"  AKA cancer the nodes would have grown alot and i would look and feel very sick by now... i feel reassured but knowing me i will worry again soon about something. But again thanx for reassuring me!
