On Tuesday I noticed a bump under my chin, on the right side.It is hard and does not move or hurt. I went to the doctor and he told me it was an infection and that it was cervical adenitis. He did not prescribe anything or run any test, which i think is strange. Everyone says he should of prescribed antibiotics, but he did not(My doctor is not the type to run tests or give meds. I don't think he has ever prescribed me anything and only once has he ran any tests for me, and iv been with him for a long time).
I'm really worried. It's still there, hard, not movable, and not painful! This morning the only thing that did hurt a little is in back(and a little to the side) of where the swollen lymph node is. I have had a bit of a cough, I don't know if this relates to anything. I will be going to the hospital on Monday if it is still there.
Please help.
What could this be?
What caused this?
What makes it worse?
What makes it go away?
What will they do at the hospital?
So many questions :(
