Plase help me! I am 14 years old and under a year ago i found a bump on left side of my neck about 2 inches away from my ear. I went to the doctor a long time ago but he said he wanted to watch it. Little did i know by watch it he meant ignore it for a year. I put it in the back of my mind and forgot about it for a long time. Recently i was scratching my neck and i noticed it. It seemed to grow but very minimally. Everyone i have asked said that it is probably a lymph node but i am convinced it is not. I have endlessley looked on the internet for an answer but i have not been able to find one.
So far the only answer i have had to any question was that i should see a doctor soon. I have set up an appointment with my doctor but it is not for a while. I am looking for a possible diagnosis or thought on what this bump might be. Any thought is helpful.
