Endo, Lymph Nodes in neck


I have recently been to see a specialist who has diagnosed me with Endo and I am having a Lap operation within the coming months.

For around a month I've had a lump on the back of my neck and I am growing more concerned about it so I wanted to see if this is something that has happened to anyone else? I presume it isn't going to be linked but wanted to check.

I've been to a doctor and she did a good look / feel over and said she wasn't too concerned as it seemed to be a Lymph Node - she said to see how it is over the next month.

Has anyone else experienced this?

It might just be a coincidence but I am having a lap soon to check for endo in the bowels, and I have a lymph node in my neck lol! It appeared around the time I started feeling symptoms too...I doubt it's related though...x


Thanks for your reply. This sounds similar to where my endo is. Have you mentioned it to your consultant who is doing the op at all? X


Oh gosh! I haven't, I actually backed out of my pre-op assessment because I got too scared with everything I've read about removing endo on the bowels being so risky :( I know I'll have to go through with it at some point... have you mentioned it to yours? Let me know what they say if you do x


Oh okay. Yes I knew there a few risks involved! I haven't no. I've been to my doctors but haven't told my consultant but wondering if I should do. X
