Hi there first time poster, nice to meet you all, about 4-5 weeks ago i noticed 2 glands ( one either side ) in my neck had swollen up but no pain came from this so i went to doctor and he told me that unless they had been up for 8 weeks or more he didn't care ( the actual words he used ) so i trusted him and kept on going but now i have 4 glands swollen in my groin area 3 on the left one on the right, the ones on the left are very tender and cause me pain and discomfort also more glands in my neck have popped up again with no pain.... i feel fine in myself but am in hospital now overnight for observation.
I am freaking out! I am 22 years old and lost my father to cancer in October 2012 and i don't know what to do with myself.
going for chest Xray tomorrow and an ultrasound on my lower abdimon so far my only symptons are
- Very occasional night sweats ( but i always put this down to some sort of dream i was having )
- Swollen Lymph nodes in throat and groin
- Painfull lymph nodes in groin ( left side )
- No nausea at the moment except the sick with worry feeling
Any questions please feel free to ask and any advice is welcome
I Admire everyone on this site for how supportive they are being for eachother, it really does bring a tear to my eyes and i think you are all wonderful people! God bless
