I went to the doctor over a month ago after noticing it, they said it was Lymphanditis and didn't give me any antibiotics. They told me to come back if it was not gone in a couple of days. One thing led to another and I was unable to return to the doctors for over a month. Then I finally went back, they gave me antibiotics and said that if it was a infection this would probably help. I am 9/10 days through the antibiotics and no change. If any thing it is harder and bigger. I have some occasional back pain and some weakness. This is not mono according to the doctor. The lump is is under the skin and I am having to sleep more than usual because I am always tired. Help?
Karen, it is time to call the doctor for another appointment. This time, maybe be a bit more proactive and request that they do a biopsy of this lymph node(s) to rule out lymphoma. A hard, fixed, node is usually a good candidate for excision and biopsy and getting an answer either way so they can get you all fixed up, would be a good thing.
