I am a 34 year old woman, last November I noticed a lump on the left side of my neck it was very prominent by sight when I turned my head.
At this time I felt well but thought I'd wait a while to see if it would go away, by January it was still there vissable possibly even bigger. My go referred me to an ent specialist he examined my neck and looked inside my mouth he said he wasn't concerned but was going to send me for an ultra scan. I received my appointment for march.
Unfortunately I was admitted to hospital with a liver infection so I missed my scan appointment.
Since March I've had numerous infections shingles 3x 4 chest infections lasting 3 weeks a time. Tonsillitis and skin infections all these were treated with antibiotics.
I've also started suffering from lack of energy, night sweats, nausea, breathlessness and low grade fevers most days.
On yet another drs appointment I broke down upset about the state of my health, I've not been able to work since march all I was told was that my
Immune system isn't working properly I came away even more upset.
With all the different infections I'd forgotten about the lump in my neck when I checked it was still there alarm bells were going off in my head. Went back to gp told him about the lump in my neck (saw a different Dr previously) he was shocked nothing has been done sooner. I was referred back to ent Dr said I would need a scan I waited more than two weeks had my ultra scan they said it was an enlarged lymph gland and not a cyst biggest party measured 3 cm
I was told nothing to qworry about. I have an appointment next Thursday with ent specialist to discuss the ultra scan. When I visited my gp and told him about the scan he said next step would be a biopsy.
Do you think its possible it could be NHL any advice would be great
Sorry for long post
