Worried about palpable supracalvicular lymph nodes

Around 4 months ago i noticed a lymph node on left side of my neck just above the collar bone, it was moveable small and not very hard.

Well being the hypochondriac that i am, I started searching for more, and boy did i find some.

I have discovered 2 on the left side of my neck just above the collar bone, they sit side by side maybe a half inch space between them, and then 2 on the right side of my neck closer to the collarbone that also sit side by side but maybe slight smaller than the left nodes. They are almost symmetrical.

I went to the doctor who commented on me being slim, and that may be why they are so palpable she stated.

She sent me for a cbc (complete blood count) and ultrasound which showed the biggest node to be 1.1x0.8 cm.

I go back to thw doctor for my results and follow up tomorrow.

After reading stuff on google which was a huge mistake I've convinced myself i may have cancer, all the information you get on supracalvicular lymph nodes are so negative and scary.

I dont know for sure yet if my nodes are the supracalvicular lymph nodes but i know they are near that area and thats what has me on edge.

All thos worrying has caused me to have some scary thoughts and taking me to some deep dark places and i am just ready to put this behind me.

Im posting here to see if anyone has had a similar situation or maybe experiencing the same right now and like to share their story.

Re: Worried about palpable supracalvicular lymph nodes

To anyone who may read this post, i went back to my doctor today for my results and follow up. The ultrasound and complete blood count were normal and show a few nodes, all less than 2 cm. She said none of the palpable nodes were supracalvicular lymph nodes which is good news for me. She said that i couldn't have a biopsy because the nodes are too small and that no specialist would attempt a biopsy given their size. I am a little happy with the news but still a little worried but i am a hypocondriac so i expected this. She also pointed out that she also has palpable nodes in the same areas as me and she says she plays with them at times but thats its nothing to be concerned with, anf if i am concerned then i could schedule another appointment in a couple of months to check the sizes again. If anything changes ill update this post. So if i hear good or bad news you guys will know because i know alot of people out there are worried as i was and they may come across this post and id like to offer some reassurance.
