alright, im 16 years old, 5'2.5", 101 lbs.ive had emotional and physical problems for a while now, and I need some help. heres a quick list of symptoms:
1.discomfort in lump on right jawline (by ear). about the size of a cough drop (although it was smaller a couple weeks ago)
2.pain on neck/right side of face. I can't lay on my right side because it hurts too much. can't turn head.
3.nausea...which has definitely affected my appetite. especially after exercising
4.unintentional weightloss. lost 10 lbs in a couple months
5.mood swings/irritation/rage/emotional changes/etc etc
6.headaches. a lot. probably about 4 a week. and they're pretty painful. (throbbing pain on right side)
7.unable to breathe...especially after running. can't dance as much as I used to because I can't breathe
8.lightheaded/dizzy especially when standing up/exercising
9.sometimes a numb feeling on right side of face/neck/right ear
currently, those seem to be the major things, and I'm pretty worried about the lump (cuz a sibling had cancer a few years back, and this was their first symptom...almost exactly), so a few more opinions would help me a lot. please!

Other than do not worry until you find out more, worrying causes symptons.
