Post cancer

For nearly a year I have had a swollen gland in my neck on the right side. Close to this I can feel a small lump on my bone in the center of my neck. I think it is bone? Well any way, my right ear has been hurting for a few months along with my neck. Anyone know what this could be? I am 35.

Well, if your lymph node has been giving you problems for a year, then it is unlikely to be cancer because it if was cancer, the trouble would have gotten much worse in the span of times from several weeks to a few months.

However, the ear pain associated with neck pain is a concerning finding. Which side of your neck is the lump on?

As for bones in the neck, what you're feeling, if it's in the front center of the neck are your thyroid cartilages, your trachea and possibly also the hyoid bone....these are obviously normal.

The lump is on the right side. It feels like a pea. Close to that is my swollen gland. I go to the gyno. next month. I will tell him about it.
