Discovered a small rectangular shaped (long in shape) lump resting on my sternocleidomastoid muscle just below my right ear and Jaw for almost two months. Dont seems to grow any bigger and painless. When i turn my head to my left, it seems like it can stretch out alittle, else, it is like a little over 0.5 inch in size when i am looking straight ahead in relax mood. Visually cannot see it unless feel it physcially. Only discover it when there is a pimple like thing grew almost directly on it. No serious sorethroat, fever, coldsweat and etc...but some minor throat irritation and mild blocked ear. Saw a doctor and he told me no issue, it is just a node. But till now, it is still there!!! Almost two months.
I am 39, ex smoker. My father is being diagnosis with lung cancer at age of 67 in June 2011. That makes me even more worry. I was once almost went into depression because of this.
Can a node be so big? So easy to feel it? And it doesnt go away? Is it normal?
I am too young to die!!!!!!!!!!
Please i need help and advice. seriously!!!!!
