: Hello, IM 21 and im very scared. Non stop crying. I am and always have been so scared of death. Now i found a lump at the base of my skull on the right side almost on my neck. Now i just noticed it a couple of days ago. Its like a hard ball. Now i have an appt in a couple of weeks w/my dr to check it out. But I cant stop thinking about it. All i can think about is, Cancer. Any advise. Please help.
Hello. I know exactly how you are feeling. I have a debilitating fear of cancer, and have posted a message about my digestive problems. I just know I either have colon or ovarian cancer. As for you, I have had exactly what you are talking about. Once it went away after a while with no problems, but another time I had a virus. You have a lot of lymph nodes behind your head and I had one that was inflammed from the virus. Mine was hard, like you said, and it was tender to the touch. This is probably what you have, but I think you should still go to the doctor to be sure. You can never be too careful. It always makes me feel better when I hear about someone else having the same thing. I hope you feel better. Take Care, Janet
