:confused:i am a 15 year old girl who. i have a lump on the back left of my neck and it has been there for about 3 months. 3 months ago i had a lymph node infection where three of my lymp nodes were swollen, including the one that is swollen now. 2 of them went away, but the one i have now didn't, this was also the biggest lymph node. i asked my doctor, who i don't really like because he isn't a good doctor, why it didn't go away. he said he doesn't know. it wasn't even in a sarchastic manner. i looked my doctor up and under my insurance plan it says he isn't board certified. this made me very upset because here i am that i might have something serious and he won't diagnose me because he didn't sit through his medical tests. anyway the lump is very weird. it is tender about a half an inch big and it isn't above the skin. also it can only be felt in certain positions. my mom is taking me to emergency on saturday march 17 but i am very concerned and nervous to go. if anybody has symptoms like this please let me know because im very upset about it and i need to know if it is serious or not and if it can be treated, if i need a biopsy, etc.. im soooo nervous!!:eek:
ALSO I FORGOT TO ADD THAT I HAVE BEEN MORE SECEPTIBLE TO GETTING SICK. I CATCH COLDS VERY EASILY AND VIRUSES TOO. I HAVE HAD A LOW IMMUNE SYSTEM, ANEMIA, AND HYPOGLYCEMIA... BUT I SEEM TO BE MORE SUCEPTIBLE TO ILLNESS SINCE I HAD THE LUMP. i figured this might be important information. my doctor thinks im crazy and that this lump is all in my head, i have researched and people have similar problems but i cant find out if it is serious or not. PLEASE POST A REPLY IF YOU CAN !!
