    Hard Lymph node or lump on collarbone

    Hi Everyone,

    Just over a week ago I felt my left collarbone and felt a small hard maybe about 1cm in size lymph node or lump, is does move and there is no pain. I'm not sure how long its been there but I felt my collarbone just over a month ago and I didn't notice it. It hasn't changed in size since I first felt it but Ive been feeling it every day so I probably wouldn't of noticed if it got slightly bigger in size.

    A week after I noticed it a few more lymph nodes appeared on my right side of my jaw and face, but these were soft and have since shrunk. I also have two behind one of my ears, one has been there over a year and the over about 7 months, they also get big and then shrink in size but they don't completely disappear.

    After feeling around some more I felt another stoney hard lymph node about half a centimeter on my left side of my jaw just in front of my ear.

    I looked online and the only thing that leads to my situation is lymphoma. After reading a few post from others about symptoms etc, I started feeling itchy mainly on the arms, scalp and neck, this is the only symptom, but I was sunburned on my arms and a rash came up so I could be being paranoid. I also have eczema on my face and scalp so im not sure if the inching is just related to that, I do feel itchy on other parts on my body but its not frequent, It might be my mind playing tricks on me because I suffer from anxiety a lot and I am a very bad googler.

    I was going to wait for a couple of weeks to see if the hard lymph nodes went down because it might be an infections but I don't have a cold or anything and I have read that infections wouldn't make a lymph node hard only cancer can cause a hard lymph node?

    Should I see a doctor asap or wait a few weeks to see if they go?

    Has anyone been through this situation before?
