Hi I am an American studying abroad in Mexico and about a week ago my lymph node on the right side of my neck swelled up and turned hard. Now it is pressing against my Adam's apple and it is really annoying me it feels like I constantly have a lump or somehting stuck in my throat. I have noticed that in the past few days my appetite has decreased. I have been reading trying to find out possible causes and it looks like mono fits the symptoms. Is there anything else that it could be and is it safe to wait like 4 weeks till I get back in the US to go to the doctor?

  • I'm no expert but a swollen lymph node can be a symptom of anything. Maybe an infection or allergies. If you have access to the internet, you can look it up. I'm not sure about the symptoms of mono but I think it comes with fatigue and fever??? I'd get it checked out if you can.
