Just a thought but have you ever considered that if it's long and hardish and near your carotid artery it might be a tendon?

The human neck is very fibrous and is full of all sorts of tissue.

There's a lot more going on in there than skin and lymph nodes :)

What do you think the second ultrasound will tell you that the first one didn't?

lymph nodes aren't "long" they are rounded.

Doctors and ultrasound techs know more about the anatomy of the neck than you do. PERIOD. One more ultrasound would do nothing to benefit you.

Moving on from the fear is ultimately a choice. You can dwell or consciously snuff out the fearful thoughts and focus on you being healthy. You hold the cards.

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state

I understand what it's like to be obsessed with health things, man. But listen, there is very little space in your neck. If you had a 6 cm node in your neck you would have all kinds of difficulties. If it's towards the middle of your neck under your jaw, you could be feeling your Hyoid

I had Stage IV SCC. I had two 5+cm nodes in my neck. It looked like I had the mumps!

You were on the H&N cancer site. It's how I found this site. I thought I'd come over and offer some common sense and experience to some folks fears concerning nodes, cancer and heart issues (I've had 2 heart attacks, bypass and stents).

I said it there as did many others and several medical professionals. You don't have cancer nor a suspicious node in your neck. Whether you can accept it? I don't know. That's up to you. What I do know is that you're consumed with fear about it and no amount of reassurance is working. Not even from a room full of head and neck survivors.

Truly, the best recommendation I have is to seek help with the real illness. Anxiety.

Good luck and positive thoughts

I don't know what SCC is, but damn, stage 4 cancer and two heart attacks?!  I could never get through all that.  You must be Iron Man!  i hope you're doing well now.
