lump under right jaw bone and 2 under right arm
I went to the dr for pain under my arm when I shave or put deodorant on. He found 2 small lumps beside my right breast almost under my arm, which I have an ultrasound for soon. Yesterday I found a hard immobile marble size lump under my right jaw bone and goes to behind my ear. It is kind of painful to touch. I also have several smaller ones around it and going down front and side of my neck. I have had no pain in my mouth or ears. I haven't had any virus that I know of. I had my cervix frozen because of pre cancer cells when I was 22. I was told about 7 months ago I have a fibroid tumor on my uterus. I still have problems with it. My stomach will swell pretty bad sometimes. I have heavy menstrual cycles and severe pain. My Aunt (my mother's sister) was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma at about 30. I am 31 yrs old now. I have an appointment next week. I would just like to know if I should be worrying as much as I am about this. Thanks in advance.

Re: lump under right jaw bone and 2 under right arm
Unfortunately worry is human nature. Good luck with all the female stuff. I had fibroids & precancerous cervical cells...a couple years later I ended up with a hysterectomy for adenomyosis & they found cervical cancer when they biopsied my cervix post surgery. (I think I spelled it right) Anyways, look it up. It may be of value to you with your heavy periods & pain. It put me through H-E-double hockey sticks for 2 years.

As far as the worry over lymphoma, I wish you the best. The best advice I can give is not to worry needlessly until you know. Of course here I am worried sick about my 7 year old who unfortunately, shows enough symptoms that his doc shows concern too. I guess I'm not so good at practicing what I preach, but for what it's worth, I wish you the best.
