I’ve made myself very paranoid that I’ve got lymphoma . I’ve got two bean shaped lumps under the skin on my neck . I have recently got ill with a bad throat, runny nose etc (I’m assuming just a cold ) . I went to the doctors and the doctor said it’s just a throat infection. However I am paranoid as I have had these lumps in my neck for a while now. I’m not sure if they have always been there or not

I can recall having a very similar experience when I was around 17 years old. I am now 63 by the way. I had a cold and sore throat and noticed similar sized lumps in my neck afterwards which were painless and remained there for months I think. I was terrified it was Lymphoma. I was too afraid to tell anyone including my friends or parents and never went to the GP. I think they just went on their own eventually and I stayed well and did not get Lymphoma. You have done the right thing by going to the doctor. I would say they are very likely to be nothing and will go on their own but if they persist and you are worried go back to your GP again.
