i found a lump in my neck about 7 months ago now it started off massive but has slowly gone down i have had 2 blood tests for glandular fever and other viruses but both came back negative. I have been sent to the doctors were i had a biopsy taken from the lump, 3 weeks later i went back for the results, i was in ther for about a minute when the doctor told me that it was just a lymph node from an infection i have apparently had and if i am worried then too go back in 3-4 months. my lump is getting slightly bigger again and i have not been ill since beginning of january and that was with a cold so i dont understand what is going on if i havnt been ill why the doctors said that ? sorry if this doesnt make sense but should i be worried ? x
