enlarged lymph nodes - worried!

Hi Katie,

Never feel that you are a pain in the butt. We all need a sounding board at your stage and you are certainly not a pain.

I hope that your left nodule looks ok when you get your biopsy results, but am delighted that your right one is benign. I am glad to hear that you can now enjoy your summer before you get your biopsy.

Don't forget to let us know how it all goes and, remember that we are always here whenever you want to talk.

Kind regards,

Jolamine xx

Hello everyone, 

Just wanted to update and post here again as I did before, I found a lump a month ago in my neck - no other symptoms related to an infection - I went to the doctors and he dismissed it as a reactive lymph node. A month on from then (today) I went back to a different doctor and he has referred me for bloods and also referred me to an ENT specialist (as many others have experience here). 

 

Im very happy this is being taken seriously now and will update you all! Hope you’re all well and wish you the best! X

Hi Buffytvs,

Many thanks for your update. I know how upsetting it can be when your symptoms don't seem to be taken seriously, but am glad to hear that your second GP has paid more attention and has ordered bloods and referred you to an ENT.

I am looking forward to your next update and hope that it is still good news.

Kind regards,

Jolamine xx

Hello Jolamine,

Thank you so much for your support, just wanted to say how wonderful you are for being here for so many people, we very much appreciate you! 

I actually missed my blood test appointment yesterday, I was so annoyed, I completely forgot because so much has been going on! I made a new appointment later in the day for a week's time - more waiting now but I am glad the surgery were understanding.

I hope so too and I hope you have a beautiful day

Best wishes

That is good that they’re understanding! Life gets in the way sometimes! Have you heard when your ENT appointment is? 

Good luck to you Happy xx

Hi Buffytvs,

Thank you for your kind words. It is good to know that it helps some along their journeys.

I am sorry to hear that you missed your last appointment, but, as scotland says, "life sometimes gets in the way".  I'm glad to hear that your surgery was understanding.

I'll have my fingers crossed for a good result from your bloods when they are taken this week.

Kind regards,

Jolamine xx

Hi All

Just a little update!

I have since my last update had further bloods taken, a biopsy taken, had my CT scan today and I receive my biopsy results tomorrow. 

I hope it will be good news, which I guess will mean further testing but I'm learningnot to make assumptions and I will hopefully know more tomorrow!

So my biopsy was clear phew!

I have been discharged from ENT. 

Providing CT and further bloods are clear with my appointment next Monday then I believe I will be referred to infectious diseases and respiritory. Doesn't get me too much further but at least eases the worries it's less sinister!

Will update on Monday and hopefully CT will be clear!

Best

Hi AriaM,

This is great news. They wouldn't have discharged you if there was even the slightest suspicion of anything untoward. I agree that it doesn't get you much nearer to a diagnosis, but it does look as if there may be a simpler solution.

Here's hoping that your results on Monday are all clear.
Kind regards,

Thank you! xx

Hi Buffytvs,

I am glad to hear that you have chased up your clinic appointment and discovered the reason for the delay.

Here's hoping that you hear before 29th and that when your blood results come back on Monday all is good.

Kind regards,

Hi there all ,just come across this post and it's of great interest to me. I had a feeling of something in side of my throat for weeks , got reffered to a consultant, he did nasal endoscopy  couldn't see anything but sent me for mri scan and CT scan , then he sprung on me I had enlarged tonsil which he even said good chance its cancer in there, and an enlarged lymph node 11mn on same side. I had tonsillectomy and part of my tongue taken too for biopsy. I was initially relieved as he said no sign of cancer,  but now I'm booked for needle biopsy of that lymph node, I'm back to worry mode. I can so relate to everyone on here.. It's so incredibly debilitating the anxiety going through procedures and waiting for results..my biopsy is on Tuesday, I'm beside myself again with worry about there being cancer in this lymph node   can anyone comment or help with thoughts or experiences of this please
