I am 41 and starting just a week ago I had a lump on my lower left side of my neck pop up. Then just a couple days later a lump popped up on the back of my neck right on the top of my spine. Then a couple days after that a lump on the right side of my neck popped up. All are painless and of course got scared and went to my doctor. I've now had two Ct scans and two blood tests and am awaiting the results. I'm trying not to worry, but It's hard but I am hoping for the best.

  • Are you having any night sweats or itching? I had hodgkin's lymphoma last year and some of the clearest signs of it are really bad night sweats and skin that itches really bad. There won't be a rash or anything, it would just itch for no reason. I had these lumps pop up on my neck and I thought I just got bit by a spider. NOPE! Well the good thing is that if it IS hodgkin's disease, it's considered the "good" cancer. It has the highest cure rate and prognosis out of every cancer there is. Only like 2% of people will ever have a reoccurance. I was diagnosed on my 19th birthday and I turned 20 last week and I have already been in 100% remission since March 18th. Good luck to you! If you have any questions or concerns you can always email me about it at lenorlives1234@aol.comI know I was really lost when I was going through everything so I know exactly how you're feeling. I hope to god it's just an infection or something insignifigant, but if it does turn out malignant, there are people to help. You're not alone, even though you most likely will feel that way. Good luck!!!
