Hi Nalera,

Welcome to Cancer Chat. I am sorry to hear that you have found a lump on your neck. It is certainly worth making an appointment with your GP. If s/he feels that there is the slightest possibility of anything being amiss, they will refer you for some tests. Nobody can be sure whether there is anything to worry about until the results of these tests come back.

Don't delay in making your appointment. If there is something sinister there, the sooner it is caught the better the outcome is likely to be. Please keep in touch with us. There is always someone here for you whenever you feel like talking.

Kind regards,

Jolamine xx
