On the 31 of January I noticed a pea sized left supracalvicular lymph node. About 4 days prior to this I was helping my parents move their furnitures around and maybe less than a week before the 31 of January I did some pull-ups which I remember pained my left shoulder in particular. I was also breastfeeding at the time and my daughter would sleep usually on my left collarbone almost the whole night feeding. I remember waking up sore and having numb to needling arm. I went and spoke to my gp without telling her about the details mentioned above as she did not seem very welcoming so it put me off. She did not examin me well and barely touched the node and went on her computer typing. Then she referred me to a full count blood test which came back normal and also referred me to a breast surgery unit which i do not understand why! The clinical pharmacist at the gp on the day examined my breasts and were absolutely lump free. Plus that i do self-examin myself and there is no lumps there that i can notice. I believe if there was any I would be able to feel them. I have cancelled the appointment to the breast syrgery clinic because i do not believe i need it at all. I have no symptoms at all. However, i am very concerned about the node not going away. I have searched the web about it and all posts seem concerning becsuse of its location. I also read that even though the node waxes and weans it may still mean something dangerous. Also stomach cancer shows no symptoms in the beginning. So i am scared and concerned and i feel i cannot go about my days looking after my baby without being very concerned about it, wishing to wake up one day and it’s completely gone back to its original size. So what do you think i should do? Do you think i might have something malignant in the abdomen or elsewhere that made this node show up all of a sudden. What could it possibly be? I also read that full blood count does not necessarily show cancer one might have it and also get normal result. Can i also mention that i also have what i think swollen lymph nodes in the groin which hurt a little when i press or i should say feel a bit uncomfortable. I can only feel them when i kind of press gently on the skin. I checked my toddler and she also has them i spoke to one of my sisters and she said she thinks that’s normal i just seem to have them but again she is not a medical proffesional. But i can feel them on both sides right and left. Is it normal to feel them? Can this be something dangerous? =(
