Re: please answer

Hi there I thought I'd post back as no-one has replied, sometimes its just nice to get a reply!! I'm no expert but I dont think size is the main factor but obviously the bigger the node the more worrying it can be for the person. Have you been to the Dr? Is it just the lump you are concerned with? good luck and hope you find answers

Years ago I had a node on my neck right by the collarbone. It was about the size of a bean. My Doc told me that nodes less than 2 centimeters were not considered a problem.
