I noticed a swollen lymph node towards the bottom left of my neck about 3 weeks ago. I haven't noticed any growth in it whatsoever, but it also hasn't gone away. I have no symptoms of illness etc. After monitoring it over this time, I went to my GP last Thursday. He did a very thorough examination of my body to check for any other swollen lymph nodes and couldn't find any.
However he did find the one I noticed. He said it is mobile and about 1cm in terms of size. He then said he could see why I'd think it was cancerous, but isn't concerned about it. He also said to come back if it's still there in 3-4 weeks just to have a blood test to check.
My worry is the wait - what if something goes wrong?
Am I right in thinking that this sounds unlikely to be something to worry about - based on what my GP said? If so, why has this lymph node come up?
I can feel another lymph node below it that seems deeper into my neck but approx the same size - my GP said it is common to feel them a lot of the time.
Any responses would be greatly appreciated.
