Okay, a few years ago I got sick. And I got huge bumps on the back of my neck that oozed oil when squeezed. After that I noticed a penny or so sized hard lump under the skin about where the neck connects to the head on the left side. My doctor(back then)said the bumps were overactive glands. Well, the lump is still there. I heard something about lymph nodes involved with lymphoma and now I'm worried. I'm 15 now. Can anyone tell me what the odds of it being lymphoma are? I'm worried sick.
