    Unhappy Sad and worried :( Lymphoma fear

    Hi.
    Before christmas I've fellt a little swollen lymph node on the right side of my neck. I didn't worried about it because I'm always with a persinstent dandruff and at that time i've had a skin allergie for one week. In January I went to the doctor about this node but he seemed not to worry and said it was because I was having gengivitis.OK, this node did shrink but not disappeared.

    In February I've felt another one on the left side, and then i went to another doctor who sent me to CBC and ultrasound. CBC was normal except that showed I've had Cytomegalovirus once in my life but it wasn't active in my body. The ultrasound showed two lymph nodes 2,6 x 0,6 and 2,3 x 0,9 in both sides jugulo digastric chain, both normal and no signs of malignancy. So my doctor said me to don't touch them and wait that they are normal.(Of course I keep touching them and eventually found more around them, little ones, but probably was already there because my doctor at the time told me that there was more).
    Went to the doctor again and had new ultrasound : Normal lymph nodes again(oval with echogeneic preserved hillum) but the bigger ones 2,7 x 0,7 right and 2,3 x 0,7 left.
    would be 1mm in almost 2 months a significant growth?

    No ones seems to be worried but me and I'm starting to think that I'm really overeacting and that poking my nodes really could make them get worse but at the same time I'm affraid of letting this in peace and turn out to really be something to be discovered late .

    I had similar experience, they need to do a ct scan of your chest, and abodomen to see if other nodes are enlarged. Go to a specialist oncologist. That deals with blood diseases, I went 7 years with GPs saying nothing wrong. I was diagnosed with marginal zone lymphoma, very hard to diagnose and slow growing. I had 6 months of chemo and its in remission. My advice to anyone, is get a 2nd and 3rd opinion. I did but it took the 3rd and 4th opinion and proper investigations to find it. Good luck, we are all human and like to listen to the Dr who says its nothing. But deep in my heart I knew it was something.
