Hi, I am new to this so just bear with me.
I am 40 years old,married with 6 children.
Last week I found a lump on the right side of my neck and then the next day I noticed another one which was bigger so I went to the doctors the following day which was the Tuesday.The doctor ordered a full blood examination along with some other blood tests and and I had to have an ultrasound done.
I got the blood test done that day and the ultrasound the next day.
On the Thursday afternoon I got a call from the doctors office asking me to come in as they had all my results and the doctor needed to see me,my liver,kidneys and thyroid were all fine but there was something else that the doctor needed to see me about.
I saw the doctor the next day and she was concerned with something about my bloods and has referred me to a haemotologist.My ultrasound also showed there were 4 lymph nodes not 2.

I have an appointment on the 7th October and am concerned.
Is this normal procedure,should I be worried.Should I have been put on antibiotics first before being refered to a haemotologist.
Does this mean there is something really wrong?
Thanks for listening and I hope someone can shed some light on this for me.
