I'm a 22 year old male in good health, however an ultrasound scan initially checking for a hernia 3.5 months ago showed that i have an enlarged spleen (14.7cm), at that time i was unaware of any lymph node abnormalities and blood work was all normal. I was reffered to a haemotologist who has done another ultrasound scan recently which i'm still awaiting results for aswell as another blood test including testing for blood born viruses - also awaiting results. I first noticed i had an enlarged Auxillary lymph node about 1 month ago. At the time over the course of a week i had tender nodes in my neck and VERY painful Auxillary nodes under both armpits, so much so that having my arms by my sides hurt as it put pressure on them. The neck and right armpit nodes have since gone away however i'm left with a hard roughly 1cm painless lymph node in my left armpit. It moves around a little bit when pushed but doesn't seem to have too far to go! Also, i can feel other soft tiny lymph nodes close by it, they arent stuck together or to the 1cm node but sort of squish out of the way when i push up to the 1cm lymph node with my finger. My GP has just put me down for another set of blood tests. I'm a bit worried about lymphoma, but i'm guessing the fact it was super painful upon discovery is good right? I have none of the other Lymphoma related symptoms such as sweats, itching etc. Thanks for reading, any ideas as to the cause are much appreciated!
