i finally have built up the courage to write my own post.
i have been complaining of a lump feeling in my throat since June this year, nothing can be felt externally but within my throat it feels like I constantly have something stuck.
i finally was referred for an ultrasound on 17-Sep where enlarged lymph nodes were found, on 19-Sep I had a core needle biopsy of one of these lymph nodes. I have been told these results can take 3-6 weeks.
in the mean time I have an ultra sound of my neck/chest/stomach/pelvis, which has shown a further 2 areas of concern. An enlarged thymus gland & an enlarged lymph node in my right lung along with inflammation.
last Friday I had a Pet scan, which I am told results could take 7-10 days.
My anxiety is through the roof, I can't work & I am struggling to function as normal. I am a mum to 4 young children, and although I am keeping strong for them.
I have been told it could be a number of things, but the 2 cancers would be lymphoma or thymoma. Has anyone had an experience of this- has anyone had similar symptoms I have had with these cancers.
I must also comment I have had no 'typical' symptoms- no night sweats/weight loss/ fatigue/ itching.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
