I have found a lump on the left side of my neck and am worried as my mum had throat/breast/pancreatic cancers. Could you help please.

Get it checked out - see your GP even though it is frightening.  I am sure you know this is the sensible thing to do even though you are worried about what might unfold.  Get a family member or friend to help you talk through your fears.  There might well not be the kind of problem you fear but if there is the sooner you know the better.  It doesn't take away the fear but I would ask you to be brave and get it looked at so you can move forward from the worrying place you are in at the moment.  Very best wishes.
