ok i am really worried here after reading way to much stuff off the net lol, but i have had 1 swollen lymph node on the left side of my neck the one that's by your jaw, its been like that for about 9 months that i know of, i know i should have gone to the doctor by now but i didn't have a family doctor and didn't want to sit at the hospital or clinic for 8 hours (yes that's how long they take here), but my question is can it be cancer if the swelling is different depending on the day and changes over the day like it will be about the size of a small/medium grape and an hour later the size of a big pea but i can always feel it.... its on the one node there's no others swollen that i have noticed any where on my body.... i guess i could point out that when i was a baby the node on the back of my neck at the base of my skull were swollen all the time....
