HELP i have a lump on the top of my spine in my neck.. it moves around and is hard. i saw the doctor about it she is setting me up with a ultra sound.. she said she was gonna call me but it's been TWO DAYS, IM FREAKING OUT. I'm going back tommorow morning to yell at them and either get it done there or go to an ER. also a few days ago i noticed a pimple under my left armpit.. i tried popping it and it spread and now there are like 5 or 6.. and another 2 just showed up under my other armpit. of course i havnt tried to pop them anymore.. but it looks like it could be Furunculosis.. which could be CA-MRSA aka staph. which is prone to people that have cancer. im only 20 years old.. im so scared. i cant sleep. i'm a hypochondriac and this is the worst fear of cancer i've ever had. Im tired alot.. ive been exhausted the last few days.. please someone tell me something helpful or comforting.
