enlarged lymph node

hi there!, im so thankful i've found this site because i've been worrying much about my prob recently..

so it was last week probably Wednesday when i noticed a lump on the left side of m neck just below my ear, i got so worried ryt away because i know its pretty much big, because ive already had few of it before whenever i have a bad cold but its just a pea size and its not visible, but now my lump is pretty much visible. just ignored if for 2 days thinking it might just shrink, but last monday i really got so worried bec i googled what it myt be and found out scary answers like cancer and some other diseases. so tuesday i went to the walk-in clinic near my work and have it checked, the doctor said told me to have an ultrasound, so the ff day i had ultrasound and just today the doctor called to see me just to tell me that i need to see a specialist because there is a lymph gland that is not clear..

btw, there are like 2 nodes that i can feel the other one is smaller(pea size) and its the normal one that i usually have whenever i have a bad cold..

plss help.. need info's about this, im so scared it might be cancer or something dangerous..

Re: enlarged lymph node

Try not to get all worked up ok? I've had issues going on myself, which I think are LPR reflux disease but I am not certain so I let all kinds of other thoughts mess with me. I have a family so I worry about things all the time. Just stay positive and try to find things to ease your worries. Make certain you go to your appt.'s. I hope everything turns out well for you, nine times out of ten in these cases they do. So I'll be thinking of you :-)

Re: enlarged lymph node

thanks for cheering me up!.. went to see my family doc yesterday which is my aunt, ask me several questions and asked me to have a chest xray, so im gonna book an appointment tomorrow..

i opened up this prob to most of my family members and they cheered me up also, so now im not worrying that much, im just thinking positive because i know im generally healthy and my aunt says so too because ive never been hospitalized or sumthing, and ive never even visited her clinic since i came here in canada two years ago because i nver had a health prob until now..

so yeah, worrying just doesnt help,.. ill keep u posted of my results.. thanks worrywartmom39..this site is really so helpful..

Re: enlarged lymph node

I am so glad you are staying positive! It will boost your health over all. That is what I try to do, even though as my name says I am a worry wart, lol! But, I've found feeling more positive about any issues makes my body feel better, which makes me feel better mentally. I still have those moments ya know but I feel so much more positive about my health concerns. I have my ENT appt. in about a week now and I feel physically better already! Please keep us all updated on you, k? You're going to be fine, I can feel it!
