I recently had an ultrasound on a lump on the left side of my neck. I had been mentioning it to different docs for over a year, and was always told it was just a swollen gland. However, over time it has become more painful, I am aware of it all the time. So when I spoke to the my doc this time he actually had a good feel and sent me for the scan.
when I phoned for the results the last on the phone said it was a necrotic lymph node. The doctor actually called me back ten minutes later to say I needed another scan and that they needed to rule out cancer!
I have my next ultrasound the day after tomorrow, my hubby is coming with, because, to be honest, I’m petrified!
I know I shouldn’t worry until tests are done, but that’s easier said than done. I’m frightened x
