I went to the docs three weeks ago with a lump in the back of my neck. Pea sized, moves if I push it around etc.
Asked if I had recently had cold etc etc so could have set off lymph nodes... nothing. So, he said come back in three weeks if it is there.
Saw a different doc as it is very much still there. Because of lack of illness, placement and only on one side, they are doing blood tests. I have them tomorrow and get the results next friday.
I can assure you, at 22 you don't want to be told you're having a blood test for malignancy. Booked in for my bloods and walked to my dad's office and had a few tears.
But rather than get worked up, I would rather get the facts and info. Anyone who has been through this; was this the only test done?
I have read a few things (oh god forbid on the internet!) and a lot of websites say that blood tests aren't always accurate. If the results come back negative, should I push to get the lump removed?
Any info will be greatly appreciated.
