Biopsies are very inexpensive and can be done in most hospitals or clinics fairly easily. If you are getting the run-around, I suggest you simply shell out the cash and find a place that will do it immediately.
I had a couple of nodes that were enlarges for around a year. I had one of them biopsied and it turned out negative for cancer. Nodes swell all the time, and many remain swollen (sometimes indefinitely). I would have the biopsy simply so that you can put any dark thoughts out of your mind.
