I have a number of small lumps in my neck, which the GP says are swollen lymph nodes. However, I have not been sent for a blood test? Is this right, because I'm pretty sure swollen lymph nodes can be a sign of serious illness?

  • If you're concerned ask your Doctor for some more testing, if he wont, find another Doctor who'll listen. :) Sammy http://www.undiagnosedillness.org
