Hello everyone and thank you very much for your time.

I have already made an appointment with my Doctor, however, she is incredibly busy and will not get to see me for anther month.

Alright so, a few months ago I noticed I was coughing way more than a normal, healthy person should. Upon looking closer, I felt a large, hard lump on the left side of my throat about an inch below my jawline. It is quite painless but does cause mild discomfort when swallowing. On top of that, I now notice another, smaller more painful lump on the right side of my throat almost directly underneath my jawline.

This made me nervous but I let it be for whatever reason. Now, on the left side of my chest (directly behind my nipple) there is swelling and what feels like two lumps growing in there.

All of this is accompanied by very extreme fatigue. Of course I am concerned that this may be cancer however I realize it could be something like a Thyroid disorder which a friend of mine has and he has many of the same symptoms.

If anyone has any words of experience I would truly appreciate it. I am a male in my mid twenties and until now considered myself to be in relatively good shape. I was a smoker for a few years off and on but have completely kicked the habit and have been smoke free for a year now.

Thank you all again for your time.
