Embarrased to see a doctor.

There is a need to worry, you can get sepsis if your lymphatic system is compromised. You will need antibiotics and possible surgery/drainage. It sounds terrible I know but it is better than dying of blood poisoning. Sera

Embarrassed or not, you need to see a Dr, as this could be something serious and needs checked out.

There is nothing to feel embarrassed to see a doc. These type of cases are very common with Doctors and they take it as same as a lymph on your neck.
