Lymphomas board

Hi everyone.
I have been lurking here for awhile. Now I need know some things. I have a enlarged lymph gland onthe right side of my neck under the ear and about an 1 1/2 inch long very soft and movable also one on the left but barely notice. My PCP first thought it was salivary gland blockage that that have got infect and not the gland, but I went to an ENT yesterday he said it was a gland and sent me to have a CT of the neck with contrast luckily they could do it while I as there he said after that we will see if we need to do a biospy. I have the swollen gland for about 2 1/2 months now. It is very soft and mushy and movable.
I am just freaking out here. Thank god for ativan.
One other thing I remember when I was a teenager many years ago the doctor told my mother that I had a natually larger gland on the right than on the left and everytime I got a cold or something that one be the largest and the sworest (sp)
Hope to here from anyone soon.
Take care
