Re: Lump at back of neck

Thanks Grumpy. I will be getting it checked out as soon as I get back to Leeds. The thought of it being more cancer sends a shiver down my spine. I am supposed to start chemo next week so I wonder if this will delay things

Hi Donata

 

Thanks for the email. I definitely need the luck. I will get in checked out. I thought there would be an end to the bad news by now. I am so exhausted from all the stress. Just when you think you have come to terms with one thing something else comes up.

 

We just need to hang in there

 

Wish you all the best

Re: Lump at back of neck

i ve got a lump in my neck too and i ve been told that it s a lymph node which they wanted to biopsy however they decided to biopsy my neck first as they say i ve got a tumor pressing against my aorta...I wish i had something reassuring to say but i m sitting here in tears sorry!But from my understanding the lump on neck is definitely a lymph node i hope that helps best of luck

Re: Lump at back of neck

Go straight to your GP, and phone your breast clinic for a quick appt.

The likelihood is that this NOT more cancer, and you need to have your mind put at rest immediately. Quick appts are precisey for that, so make fuss until you get to see someone.

AND DO NOT GOOGLE IT you will just drive yourself bonkers.

All the best

Lump at back of neck

Hi everyone

 

I found another lump at the back of my neck and I am absolutely petrified. I have been researching about this and am getting very paranoid. The lump feels very small about the size of a pea. I can't quite work out if it is painful or not as I have been prodding it for the last two hours.

 

Has anyone had a similar experience?. I'm getting a headache just thinking about what this could mean. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in mid September after finding a small lump in my breast and i am waiting to start chemo. I had a lumpectomy and it turned out to be a very small tumour of 14mm.  I had two lymph nodes taken out and they were clear of cancer cells so I am wondering if they missed something or worse it could be another form of cancer.
