Hi. I'm scared I may have cancer and I'm freaking out. I'm a 28 year old male. For a long time I have had a swollen lymph node behind my right ear. I recently started getting bad headaches. They originally began on the right side of my head in the temple area, slightly above my right ear. These headaches now are more profound in terms of pain and they are now prevalent in the top of my head and, as well somewhat on the left side. Could this be contributed by possibly, maybe, a parathyroid problem or thyroid problem. I do remember when I was a teen I know I had a problem with high calcium levels. Also when I was 13 or 15 I was hit by a semi-truck on a bicycle. Could it be maybe this? I have a doctor appointment Monday but I am freaking out from all what I have read on the web. Any ideas? Do you think its cancer? As always thanks. Keith
