I am waiting for an appointment at the ENT. This due to a swollen lymph gland the dentist found in my neck. Since the find i have struggled with a bad cough which is now companied with a tight feeling in my throat. I am struggling to function on a daily basis and socialise. The worry is making me ill, i have convinced myself i have throat cancer 😭😭😭

    Hi 😊 I had exactly Same thing and turned out to cough had been working on me so the lymph node was swollen. Most common cause is infection for them to swell. I know because I read everything on them when happened to me. I worried myself into a state of anxiety and still suffering and turned out OK.
