Hello, so I am 18 years old, very anxious about my health, but I am quite concerned now. About month and a half ago I developed weird bone pain and thought I had leukemia, I had 3 clear blood tests, but about a month ago I became quite tired (I started working out harder, playing actively football again, was very stressed and I sleep like 6-7 hours), maybe my anxiety is just causing the tiredness. The tiredness still persits, It does not get worse, sometimes is better. It is more of a mental one, like I feel sleepy, but I can still push throught workouts and football, and I did not loose any weakness in muscles or my stamina. I automatically thought it could be lymphoma when I got leukemia ruled out with my blood tests, the thing that was keeping me away from lymphoma was the fact, that I thought I have no swollen lymph nodes. Well, yerstreday i had pain in my shoulder and trap muscle, probably from working out, but when touching it I could feel a lump (it is the posterior cervical area). I immidietaly panicked and started feeling the other side too. I can feel the lump there also but a bit higher and not as deep. I also started feeling my groins for lymph nodes because I have few palpable ones too.
I did research and started measuring them. I am quite confused, because in the long axes the one I felt first on the right side is shorter than 1 cm, but the one on the left side is about 1 cm in lenght. But this is the long axis, the short-axis a a lot smaller, like 0,5 cm. The one that worries me the most in the one in the groin. I always had palpalble lymph nodes there, I remember touching them and thinking it was hernia as a kid. There is one lymph node that is long about 1,5 cm, but once again the short-axis it is probably even under 0.5 cm. I wonder, are these lymph nodes normal or enlarged ? I always had some palpable lymphnodes around my body, but I never cared about the size.
I also developed a cold and a sore throat about 3 weeks ago, it went aways for a bit, but came back a week ago and I still have it a bit. It is not sever a bit, the throat is midly sore and my nose is just a bit runny. I wonder, if this could be lymphoma or not ?
ADDED: Just went to a doctor, he said he could not feel anything, I am confused...
