Question hard lymph nodes and rubbery ones? i am worried about cancer...

hi i know alot of people are saying almost the same thing but i am going nuts waiting for the doctors. my symptoms are hard and rubbery lymph nodes in my neck,behind my ears,on the back of my skull,around my eyes but on the skull,armpits,chest,groin,ribs and under them,back of my upper legs and arms,and above collar bones. i have a cough, fatigue,achs,pain in my stomach/abdomin, ive lost 11 pounds unintentially,im always not hungry,and ive been waking up with nightsweats, low grade fever.
i saw my doctor a month and a halfago when i noticed the first lump and ever since then they have been growing and spreading,all my doctor has done is a few blood tests that came back negative, i saw a ear nose and throat doctor that said he cant do anything unless they get to 2in. and he said i have tmj and i went back to my regular doctor and he had me have a ct scan with contrast 2 days ago and i still havent gotten the results. my grandpa died of esophagecal cancer my grandma had lung and sqaumish cancer my aunt dawn died of breast cancer....im just curious if anyone else had these problems and found out what is wrong.....i have a 15 month old son and a 3 month old daughter i dont want to find out i have cancer im just so worried though so good news would be good. o yeah and the doctor said i have lumps in my breasts but he said i dont have to worry about them...please someone respond any advice would be nice.. well i just got my catscan results earlier the doctor said it was normal other than i have fluid in my ovaries and he said that i should go see a gi doctor but i cant get in untill october 18th i feel so frustrated because every day im getting more and more hard lumps...someone please help.

Re: hard lymph nodes and rubbery ones? i am worried about cancer...

Hi I am sorry you haven't had a reply from anyone yet. My two young children have been preventing me from reading your full entry, but I read enough to feel you need a hug and shoulder to let you vent. When I get a moment I will read your entry and see if I can help. I am freaking out right now as I assume you are too. I have two enlarged groin lymph nodes and one measuring 2.5 cm. My appointment with a specialist isn't until next Monday (the wait is killing me) and my CBC results came back today as normal. I was hoping for a sign of infection but that wasn't the case. My brother has stage three anaplasticastrocytoma (spelling?) in his brain and am automatically thinking the worse case scenario for me. Am I being paranoid? And does anyone else have a sore tailbone for no reason? Ahhh my questions are overflowing!!! I wish I had more time to spend on this site!!!!

Hi, I have swollen lymph nodes in my groin (right side) that I have had for almost 4 years. They are probably about 2-2.5 cm in length but very thin (<.5 cm). I am just curious. Are yours long and skinny like that? Or are they more of an olive shape?

Post Re: hard lymph nodes and rubbery ones? i am worried about cancer...

i am very sorry to hear about your brother, and you have every right to be worried i have a egd tommorrow and i saw an oncologist today my glucose is high 112mg, my urea nitrogen blood is low 6mg, my alkaline phosphatase is low 44 u/l, my neutrophil is low 41.3%, my lymphocytes are high 52.4%, and my absolute neutrophils are low at 2.1 , the oncologist said we will have to wait and do another blood test on nov.30th and if my results are still abnormal he said then we will do more testing also he said if i have esophigical cancer we will find out with the egd. thank you for your response at least there are some people out there that still care.

mine are more of a olive shape and they have increased in size over the last 3 1/2 months.i have learned though that if you have cancer or any diseases your blood will have changes and they will see in a cbc or cmp i hope this helps.

Re: hard lymph nodes and rubbery ones? i am worried about cancer...

I hope I am responding to the correct person, but I at least this can help everyone. Regarding timeliness of appointments remember the squeaky wheel gets the grease, or however that saying goes. Advocate for yourself and make sure they respond to your care quickly. Hound them with phone calls and mention "delay in care" they will understand that lingo. My brother had to wait six weeks for a surgery date to remove his brain tumor and by that time it was stage III and the size of a baseball. If you have Kaiser fight, fight, fight for yourself. They are infamous for delaying care to the point of it being too late.
