Re: Lump on my neck below ear
You were absolutely not treated with respect there, and I would not go back. I would seek the opinion of another Dr and ask what that Dr thinks it is. There can be pea size cysts in the skin, or if it is a lymph node, it is more concerning. The lymph nodes in front of the big diagonal muscle in neck are usually less concerning than the ones behind the muscle. If it is larger than a grapefruit seed, and hard, it may need to come out for biopsy. In the meantime, your new Dr. should check all your other lymph node areas, your lungs, liver and spleen on exam, order a CBC, and possibly ultrasound that lump, unless it is superficial in the skin like a sebaceous cyst. Try to get some info from friends on a good Dr to see who is kind, thorough, and will take this seriously, as it may be serious, and you deserve to be treated with respect and not dismissed as a hysterical female worried over nothing. I would have cried too. Good luck, and don't let this go just because one Dr said it was nothing. It is something and you need answers.
