Hi all, I was diagnosed just a few months back and at that time did not believe I had any B Symptoms of CLL. However, I've noticed that I have two symmetrical bumps, either side, towards the back of my neck and I'm unsure whether these are swollen lymph nodes. They're not painful and you cannot see them, but you can feel them. I'm not sure if they've always been there, if they've been there ages or if they have just sprung up. I've never noticed any swollen lymph nodes ever before but have never paid attention before. If they sound like swollen lymph nodes, should I be concerned that they've swollen so soon into my diagnosis? Have many people had swollen lymph nodes and been on watch and wait for a very long time?
I've managed to push my CLL specialist appointments back to every six months because I find it really stressful going in, so don't want to go in about this before my next appointment in July. I want to concentrate on my five month old baby during the rest of my maternity leave and try to ignore all of this as much as possible.
