I have a few questions about Lymphoma. I think I may be paranoid. I'm not sure, now everything looks like it maybe cancer. I was dx on april 1st 2008 with stage 1 and grade 1 breast cancer at 34 years old. Finished radiation and chemo Nov of 08. All treatments went well. About 5 months ago I started to have serious back pain right across the middle (banding). To where some time I thought my back was caving in and couldn't breath. Almost went to the hospital (afraid of bill). Doctor sent me for a chest xray and mri. Nothing came of it. Prescribed some pain meds and that was it. Since then its been off and on I quit complaining and just try to ignore it when it does hurt. About a week ago I noticed a small bb size painless knot on the side of my neck about two inchs from my collar bone not sure if this is a lymph node. Then a few days later I notice that three or four lymph nodes are swollen on the right side bigger than the left. I have been tired lately and my joints have been hurting to, where I think "man am I getting old or what". Not sure if I should just wait a couple of weeks to see if the swelling goes down or not. If anyone has some advise I would be thankful.
