Scared I might have Lymphoma -- please help
I may be worried over nothing, but I found this board and wanted to ask for some advice. I've had mildly swollen (pea-sized), tender (achy) lymph nodes under my jawbone for a few weeks now. Additionally, I will occasionally wake up at night in a cold sweat (not drenched, just moist). During this time I've also had a cold that turned into a sinus infection (teeth ache, headache, drainage, nosebleeds, bloodshot eyes, etc.) I had previously been on a course of Cipro for another infection, so my doctor doesn't want to give me any more antibiotics for awhile. I guess my paranoia lies in these achy lymph nodes under my jawline. I don't notice any swelling anywhere else in my body (armpits, groin). But when researching what could be the possible underlying causes for these symptoms, I see lymphoma and get worried. I haven't had any weight loss. I'm fatigued, but I think that could just be from the anxiety over it all. My question is, should I be concerned over lymphoma given these circumstances? I am driving myself crazy with worry. Thanks for any advice.
