Been referred for a ct & to see a neck lump specialist. I've been unwell for months- extreme fatigue, itchiness, headaches, bone pain, a cough that feels like someones tickling inside my throat, constipated at times (tmi sorry!), and although I'm still eating fine I'm having to make my self eat at times because my appetite aint good at all these past 2 weeks, lost weight... Was 8stone 4 about 4 months ago, and I'm now 7 stone 6. So I know this may seam like one of these possibly annoying posts where someones a bit of a worrier or something.. But I ain't worried or being a hypochondriac promise lol. I have a lump in my neck about 4cm the gp said when he felt it last week not sure if thats upsy ways or sidey ways. Was about the size of a marble in February when I noticed it it's grown a fair bit I suppose... My lymph nodes are swollen around my head and ears, and feel-able in my groin but I'm assuming that's because I'm rather under weight for my height now. Basically there's a few things that are concerning me 1. my gp now seems concerned 2. how I was told I'd be seen in 2 weeks.. 2 weeks? nhs? when does that happen lol. 3. the gp is usually quit rushed and deosn't like me (situation not to do with myself) but seemed to have so much time for me and was really nice during my last appointment. 4. Called neck lump 'mass' then corrected. 5. Everything else seems to have been ruled out. 6. Neck lump specialist? what even is that? 7. Done a silly billy thing & googled was at my wits end.. What came up was lymphoma. I doubt it like... But a friend of my mums had this or something similar and had some of the same problems if I remember right. Sorry for dragging on! What I want to know is can it be something else? Is there another problem my symptoms can fit into? Is there a normal cause of lumps and swollen nodes? Really I'm just looking for another possible cause of all this that aint cancer so that I dont start to worry... Don't like worry lol. I'm an optimist and a cheery lil person I need.. I dont know like something that it could be? So I can just think 'Oh it's just super long lasting bug it'll pass soon'. Sorry I sound insane I know my heads a bit wibbly now I starting to worry. Sorry for the going on and if this offends anyone or anything, and thanks to anyone who does reply
