Lump in neck...cancer?

Postby fred » Sun Oct 07, 2012 4:21 am

I have a lump on the right side of my neck about half way down towards the back of my neck, I just noticed it a few days ago so I don't know how long it's been there. The lump is only a little sore but at first it was painless. It could just be sore now because I keep pushing on it. I've taken ibuprofen and it hasn't gone down, my throat isn't sore, the only other symptoms I have are eye pain (when I move my eyes up or down and side to side) it hurts to push on my left eyebrow, and yesterday my neck and back were stiff and I developed a few other little bumps. I have a small little bit of white on my tonsils but it's a really small amount. I've read that hard lumps in your neck can be a sign of lymphoma....I know that it can also be an infection but it worries me that I don't have any other symptoms.

I'm a 20yr old female, I have a dr appt on monday but I'm really really stressed out about this.

How likely is it to be cancer?

A swollen lymph node does not always mean cancer. Your lymph nodes swell when you have a virus. It is assisting the battle in getting you well. The symptoms of lymphoma are night sweats, fatigue, nausea, loss of appetite and sudden marked weight loss. If you still have your tonsils it could be an infection in there and not a tumor at all. You are going to live. Cancer is scary but try not to let it scare you. I hope I helped you.

20 year olds rarely develop any malignancy including lymphomas.
This is most likely a normal lymph node doing its job.
Very much doubt it is a malignancy or anything to worry about.
You will find out in two days when you see your doctor.

All cancer is curable. Dr. Leonard Coldwell has cured over 35,000 cancer patients without the use of chemo, radiation, or surgery. If you watch his videos on youtube, you won't believe how easy it is to cure cancer naturally. A doctor in California cured his cancer patients using vitamin B-17, but after he went public, the medical profession took his licence and put him in jail. Women have cured their breast cancer just by drinking wheatgrass. Dr. Simoncini, a doctor in Rome, has been curing cancer patients for over 20 years with baking soda. Also, in the 1930's, it was proven that cancer cannot survive in an oxygen environment. A woman with terminal liver cancer cured herself by being stress free and thinking positive. There are loads of natural cures. Dr. Leonard Coldwell will freely give you all the information on his youtube videos.

The war on cancer is a fraud. It is phony baloney. Throughout history, every time a doctor or scientist has found a cheap, natural cure, the medical profession has either put the doctor in jail, or they have made sure that the public don't get to hear about it. In America, cancer and cancer prevention is a $220 billion dollar a year industry. These medical criminals see cancer patients as customers. If you don't believe me, watch a video on youtube called "A World Without Cancer"

The truth is, most cancer patients don't die from the cancer, they die from the chemo, radiation, or surgery. Those who survive are often damaged for life, and the cancer often comes back even more aggressive. A person can have a tumor for over 10 years with hardly any symptoms, yet 27% of cancer patients die within the first 30 days of chemo. Radiation also causes cancer, and surgery makes the cancer spread. I'm not joking. The medical professions are the ones killing people, not the cancer. Look up Dr. Leonard Coldwell, and stop listening to the lies of these medical criminals. Natural cures DO exist.

Good luck

I'm only about 14 years older than you, but I am so glad I was an adult before google was invented! It seems like half the country thinks they have lymphomas. And you DO have other symptoms of infection - you're just not paying attention to them. If it hurts around your eyes, this is probably some kind of mild sinus infection, especially when it hurts around your eyebrow. And white on tonsils ALWAYS means infection.

If this was me, I wouldn't even have called the doc, let alone stress over it. This sounds more like either early strep throat, mono, sinus....any one of these is far more likely than lymphoma, and when you combine them, I'd say the odds are in your favor! So don't stress.
