Swollen neck

16 Nov 2019 17:03

Hi, just wondering if anyone has experienced the same. I have Hodgkin’s lymphoma and have had 11 chemos and in less than 2 weeks I’m having my final ABVD chemo! But my neck has started to swell.. I don’t know if it’s inflammation, is this normal ? I have also got a cold so is that the cause of the swelling? My specialist is aware and I’m seeing ent after my last chemo, just wondering if anyone else has had this, thanks.

Hi Teenagecancergirl,

Firstly I hope you're getting on OK and it's good to hear you're approaching your final chemo.

I'm unsure of why you might be expericing the neck swelling. It's good that you've raised it with your specialist, and hopefully it improves before long.

If anyone here has any similar experience then hopefully they'll be along soon.

Wishing you all the best,
