Last week I felt some round bumps on my neck, I have not had a virus or a cold for a while now. I was concerned and went to show it to my GP, he sent me for a blood text and neck ultrasound, my ultrasound results came back today and when I spoke to the GP he said that I had many lymph nodes that are in the general size range however, there is two big ones at about 3-4cm and he said I will need a biopsy. I have been getting fevers on and off for the last 6 months, also night sweats, fatigue, loss of apatite and a weight loss of 4 kilo's in the last two months. After reading stuff on the net about lymph nodes and how they can be cancer I have been feeling very worried. I am a 28 year old mother of two.Last November I was diagnosed with a giant cell tumor of the tibia bone, it has been removed and treated. However, now I'm worried this may be cancer and waiting for results is killing me and my family. Can anyone give me any advice please????
