    5 Week Sore throat and swollen lymph node on left side of neck

    Hi All
    Just wondered if anyone has had similar symptoms & what they turned out to be. I am pretty terrified I have throat cancer
    I look a long all flight around 6 weeks ago and 4 days later noticed a sore throat after swallowing on my left side. I thought I would develop a cold but no cold ever came. I noticed a swollen gland on the left side of my neck too. I was given a 10 day course of amoxicillin and by the 10th day the pain in my neck seemed to have gone. However 3 days later it was back although the pain feels a bit more localised to one spot and not quite as bad
    I made a doc's appointment who immediately reffered me to an Ear Nose Throat Specialist. I have the appointment next week but am out of my mind with worry that it is throat cancer. Any advise would be much appreciated.
