I noticed a lump on the left side of my neck last November. My primary doctor put me thru a battery of tests (xray, c-scan with dye contrast) and basically told me I had cancer. Well, I went to an Ear, Nose and Throat doctor who took another approach. She drained the abscess, biopsied the cells - found nothing - and put me on antibiotics. This continued for 6 months until last June when ENT doctor decided to operate. When she opened me up she found a deep neck muscle abscess and cleared out the infection. Then more antibiotics. The abscess came back and put me in the ER in July and was drained again. Then I was put on another antibiotic. That one worked and the abscess went away...until 2 weeks ago. The lump is back. I've scheduled an appointment with an Infectious Disease doctor this time. I don't understand where this is coming from or why it came back. Any advice?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
