Hello my name is Michael and i am scared for my life right now.
I have had the feeling of something being stuck in the left side of my throat for about 4 in a half months. It also is uncomfortable to swallow. I have been to the doctor and he felt my neck up and he said he couldnt feel anything and gave me a round of amoxicillin. That was about 5 weeks ago and the antibiotics did nothing. About 2 weeks ago i found by feeling my neck a lump on the left side of my throat right up under my jaw a little bit to the left of my chin. It feels slippery and round and is pea-sized. I am Only 16 and i am so freaked out right now, its not even funny. when i tell my mom about it she just tells me to stop bein a hypochondriac so my parents think im just full of drama. I might be but i have just convinced my self that i have cancer.
Can someone please help me out and give me an idea of what i have

Thanks,
Michael
