To make things brief. Im extremely terrified. Ive been having the C-word scares for over 3 years first it was when i find out i had a lump in my breast after i had my 2 kids, and find out it was a fibroadenoma a benign tumor and been constantly checking my body for any lumps and bumps since then one day i recently notice a hard lump a little below my hairline i believe an occipital node was swollen since last march when i discovered it. Its hard barely movable and wax and wanes. One moment feels bigger then later feels a shinks a little. Im 22 years old with no family history but constantly having worries of this possibly being lymphoma. I cant talk to my fiance about this or my family members because they think its my anxiety agian because ive been in the docs in and out since i was 16 about noumerous problems that werent serious at the time but this obviously is because i have a defiante hard lump fixed that been there since last year march, also when i got it discovered i got a CT scan done blood test that came back negative for anything, just said i got a few swollen lymph through out my neck that i cant feel also swollen but it looks normal and nothing suspicious. Since then i went ahead and let go of the situation until recently i felt it randomly agian and i think it got bigger!!! I dont know if its because i haven't felt it in awhile and i forgot how it felt or what but now im super scared keep shaking so worried about this. I attend college and also a mom and now this is something agian i have to worry about it keeps following me. Now i pushed my doc to do fna biopsy that he dosnet recommend because he says its only serious if its a size if a golf ball then he will worry, but will only do a fine needle biopsy and not a open biopsy thats more accurate in diagnosis, then a fine needle. Because he thinks its not that serious to go ahead and do a full surgry on it and open me up. Which i think thats the only way for sure to know what i actually have. Some fine needle arent actually 100% accurate but thats the only thing i got right now. Im just really scared and think it grew. I dont know what to do in the meantime but just freak out im really scared. I would like to know if anyone else was ever in the same situation as me and had a hard lymph node swollen for over a year and it turned out to be nothing ?? Sorry how long this was
