Hi, I know there are a few similar posts to this but thought I'd post my own as some things may be a little different to other people's experiences.
About 3 weeks ago I noticed a hard lump on my neck, I've no idea how long its been there. It doesn't hurt, not tender, feels quite solid/hard and doesn't really move. Sort of a kidney bean shape and size I guess. From checking it appears to be the cervical lymph node which is near the back of my neck.
I had a doctor's appointment a few days later anyway because of some very itchy skin on the back on my scalp/neck and groin area which has been bothering me a couple of months now, so thought I'd also mention it then. I thought he'd just say oh it's nothing, however he booked me back in for 30th October and if it's still there he'll refer me for ultrasound on it. I was a bit worried as was hoping it was nothing. Of course I'm now reading all I can to learn more, trying to not worry at the same time (I've a 4 and 1 year old!). I've not experienced night sweats, as for fatigue, well I'm always tired but put it down to having 2 little ones to look after (and a single mum). I have noticed I've been more breathless going up the stairs etc though.
I do wonder if the itchy skin could be related. I've been mostly well, only thing to note is my throat hasn't felt right for a few weeks, feels like a constant lump there that doesn't go when I swallow, although doesn't appear to be inflamed or anything. I've been quite underweight for a while (7st 3) but don't think I've lost any more recently.
Just posting on the off chance someone has/is going through something similar! If the lump is still there on 30th and I do go for ultrasound, will try and remember to post what happened.
Thanks for reading!
