Over the past 5 or so weeks I have been going mad. I found a reasonably sized lump on the right hand side of my neck, pretty much directly in the centre of my neck on the right hand side and the line of it is just past my ear, I am only a 17 year old lad, about to turn 18 and at this moment in time I'm going mad.
I literally have no idea what to do, if anyone has and clues to what this may be and what to do that could point me in the correct directon that would be great, I prefer to talk about this anonymously rather than to my parents just yet. What I basically want to get out of this is to find out if anyone else has had anything else that is similar, I have tried to scan the internet for possible thing that this could be, but this does not help me psychologically at all.
The only symptoms I have are I am struggling to swallow, however apart from that over the past 5 or so weeks I've just had a couple of sniffles, but that's it, apart from as stated above I feel perfectly fine.
Really hope someone can help me and point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it, what an 18th birthday present this could turn out to be...
