Is it Tonsil cancer?!

Hi there,
I'm an 18 year old female who has had a swollen lymph node for a few months now, i have also had recurring tonsil ulcers which come and go (they cause really a really sore throat) and it feels as if there's something stopping me from swallowing 100% right. (i can eat and swallow food, it's just when i normally swallow my throat feels really dry)
Occasionally my tonsils are swollen, but not all the time.

I had my ENT feel my lymph node when i last saw him, curious as to what it was, and he commented it was a small node, i had no real worries back then. I have also been to my dentist for a 6 month checkup and he didn't say anything was out of the ordinary.

Am i just being paranoid? Please help!

Re: Is it Tonsil cancer?!

Cancer tends to slowly progress over a period of weeks to months. Your problem appears to be coming and going. It could be that you're prone to throat irritations or infections right now. The ENT may have some solutions, so if it's bothering you, go back.
