I am worried about my mum (59 years of age). She has had a lump on her neck as far as I am aware since winter of 2017. She had an ultrasound scan around Christmas time which didn't find anything so they left it for 6 months and then she had a repeat ultrasound in June 2018. The doctor told her after this ultrasound that the results were not lymphatic. I am worried though from reading other people's posts that an ultrasound is not sufficient to draw that conclusion. He said there is blood going into the nodule so today they did a Fine needle assisted by ultrasound biopsy. However, from reading posts this is apparently useless and gives many false negatives?? The doctor said they would just leave my mum after this if it was negative though.
I am really worried.
