Hello. =] I've had a swollen lymph node on teh left side of my neck for atleast three months now. It doesn't really hurt when I poke at it, but I can feel a tiny bit of "paint"; (it doesn't really hurt at all, though); that I feel in teh otehr lymph node in my neck, which isn't swollen. I went to the doctor's yesterday, and he felt it and everything, and said that it's not cancer. I asked my mother if there's any chance that it could be cancer, and she said no. I asked my doctor; (again); if there's any chance that it could be cancer he said no. Even with that; I'm still worried that it could be. (Yes, I worry a LOT). XD Every now and then I'll get a sore throat for a day or two, accompanied by sore muscles, sinusitus-like symptoms, "head pressure", sometiems a headache, and sometimes a ringing in my ear. Is this just because it's winter, and I have allergies and asthma, or is it something I need to be concerned about? Thanks! =D

  • Goodness girlfriend...they need to run some blood tests on you. Have mom insist or take you to a different doctor. It could be your adrenals, thyroid (or goiter) or a virus like mono. You really need to know.
