Im 48 yr old male. I work as a porter in a private school and about 8 wks ago ay work i hurt my back. A week or so later a growth occured at the bottom of my spine with a swelling of my lymph nodes at the side of my groin area. At this same time my wife who is a hair dresser noticed a bald spot about the size of a 10 pence piece at the back of my head. After just losing a life long friend with lung cancer paranoia set in and believed i was next. My wife decided we needed to see someone quickly. She (Debbie) took me to the gp unit in Accrington lancs. The doctor told me that the lump on my back was a cyst and the lymph nodes swellings were connected so i was treated with antibiotics. Fortunately the cyst disappeared and the lymph nodes swelling went down. What has happened since though is that the bold patches have now occured all over. The doctor says its just alopecia. Im absolutely gutted by my appearance especially having to work in a school environment. Could anyone put an explanation with my cyst and the lymph nodes or is it just coincidental. By the way i sympathise with any one with alopecia especially knowing what impact it can have on your life; even affecting my relationship with Debbie my wife as i am losing all confidence that i had. I wont even go out to socialise anymore its as though ive aged years in just these few weeks. Up to a few weeks ago i trained in weights and running 4 to 5 nights a week and now nothing because my confidence has been destroyed. I apologise for my long drawn out explanation. Would love any explanation or advise on remedies linked with the prognosis 😔
