MRI Brain Scan

Hi all! I just had my second round of radiation today & I can taste metal. Is that normal for radiation in the groin area? Or is this just in my head?

He looked at me with a…

I need opinions. Not sure where to get second opinion.
I have had a very large, hard non moveable occipital lymphnode since the beginning of Dec. I had a neck CT which showed multiple swollen nodes but my CBC is fine. Doc wants to wait for 3 months and repeat tests. I don't like this plan. I am exhausted, itchy but all over and not extreme and have had trouble with tolerating…
