Scared to death of lymphoma

Two weeks ago I was having a sore throat. I thought it was strep. I went to a cvs minute clinic for a strep test and it was negative. She told me that my right tonsil was very enlarged though and it could be a peritonsillar abscess and I should see a doctor or go to the er. I went to my primary care. he prescribed me clindamycin and wanted to see me when it was done. a few days into it my tonsils were really bothering me. I went to the er to get prednisone which didnt do much for me. I went back to my primary thursday. He said my tonsils looked normal but one was bigger than the other and sometimes thats normal in people. I have never heard of this before. Also my right tonsil is so much larger when I show people they say wow you should get that looked at. He took blood to test for mono. Well yesterday I still was not feeling good with that so I went to a world renowned hospital in Boston. 2 doctors looked at me, They said it is definitely not an abscess but not quite sure what it is. Could be a virus etc. They referred me to an ears nose and throat doctor. I told her my concerns and she said she wouldnt lose sleep over it but definitely keep my appointment. My doctor called the same night said my blood count, blood nutrition, liver and kidney functions, and cholesterol all came back normal. But I read that lymphoma cannot be detected in blood. I dont have night sweats or a rash but I have had some stomach pain. I am so freaked out. I am have an appointment with an ENT doctor tomorrow but I am so scared and cannot stop thinking about it. I am looking for opinions
I want to add I am a 23 year old female. Healthy. Normal energy level. I have had strep throat about 4 times in the past. originally I was diagnosed with tonsillitis
