Okay, so I found a lump in the back of my neck around 6 months ago. It was about one and a half inches when i noticed it. I went to the doctor and he said it was "a little lymph node- nothing to worry about"
Today, it is three inches wide. I went back to the doctor on thursday, and again "a little lymph node, just ignore it"
I'm tired of that load of bull.
Three inches is not little.
What should i do.
Oh by the way..
the lump is hard. rock hard.
it is under muscle. (lymph node? i think not.)
I'm also feeling run down and tired.
It has nothing to do with infection, sprained muscle, or cysts.
What could it be? and what should I do now?
Im 13 years old.
Yes, it's painless
I feel some discomfort in the left part of my abdomen.
Its a crushing feeling, and is accompanied by back pain, more at the top of the left part of my abdomen, feeling is worse when i breathe in.
I've got a bit of itching, and i feel a little damp at night, not sure if it's out of the ordinary though.
The fevers are sort of intermittent.
Like i have one, and then its gone after a few days, then it comes back.
With that, I do get chills.
Ive also noticed that lately i am a bit more susceptible to infection than usual.
I went to the doctor again and, he said it was nothing. Now he wants me to get a scoliosis series. I dont see why he should because I didn't have this bump all my life, and its not exactly alligned with my spine.
I need answers but a young kid like me is never taken seriously when they say they don't feel well. My mom hardly believes me and accuses me of being lazy.
It's been a long time since my last post.
I hope you'll check this new one.
All of your symptoms and your age, are suggestive for a viral infection, known as infectious mononucleosis.
Usually, first sign that is noticed due to this general infection, are swollen lymph nodes in the back of the neck, that can be noticed by other people, too.
According to the time you've first posted, the only symptom you should have now, if you, indeed, had mononucleosis, is an excessive feeling of fatigue.
