Lymph Nodes The Size Of Eggs!
Posted in the Endocrinology Forum
#1 Aug 31, 2013
Hello and thank you for reading this!
About 6 months ago I started developing large Lymph Nodes in my neck. Once they started to grow, they grew very rapidly, and stayed that way. From what I have read they should be the size of a pea, two are the size of eggs. They are clustered right next to each other and it's very worrying.
I saw a doctor at around month 3. He said not too worry and to come back if they did not go away. However I had to leave the state and now I do not have health insurance, cannot get state insurance, and cannot afford paid insurance that has the coverage I need. So seeing a specialist is not going to be easy if at all possible. Though I know I need to.
My real question is this: How likely is this deadly serious? How long does it usually take, if it is cancer, for it to progress past a point that I can just have a simple surgery to remove the nodes? I really don't want to die at 23. I know it's possible it's lymphoma, a type of cancer. I have been a smoker since I was 16. I am now 23. I used to smoke 3 packs a day. Now I am down to about half a pack a day. I know I should stop...
If you can help in any way, thank you so much....
This is really causing me a lot of stress.
