Not sure if unrelated but thought I'd ask regardless.
Had surgery for a femoral fracture 6 weeks ago, healing seems to be fine however a week ago I noticed a painless lump on the back of my neck, thought nothing of it until I located a second lump earlier today with some localized pain on the side of my neck, lump is only observant when I stretch my neck, It almost appears like a nodule, however I haven't had any infections for a while.
Can anyone help? I'm in an isolated part of North Sweden and am contemplating seeing a doctor, but such a trip could take up to a day (with a functional leg :( which I dont have)??
