I have no insurance so i am trying to determine if need to be concerned.
About 5 years ago I developed (overnight) a painless lump on the side of my neck. I went into the Er but it was a very small town and i had terrible trouble communicating with the only doc available( he was Indian and very polite just hard to understand and did not seem to understand me ) He touched the lump, measured it and told me it was a subcutaneous abcess. I did not have anything done because having no insurance I couldnt afford it and in a matter of days it was gone. I thought nothing else of it until this year when I developed a painless lump in a solitary inguinal node It began the size of a child's marble and has since shrunk to the size of a pencil eraser and has come and gone a few times this year.
As I was confused abot what could be causing this, I looked online and discovered--to my horror-- that my recent fatigue, loss of apetite, and itchy skin along with a swollen lymph node could be indicative of cancer. I have had eczema out breaks eery few years so I didnt wanty to say that was a definitive symptom. i am not sure if i have cause to be concerned or I am just making too much of this. My mother underwent chemo for Hodgkin's disease when she was not much older than i am now.
Any help is appreciated. i am a single parent to a disabled child and cannot afford to go to a doctor unless it is urgent
