  1. Lymphoma?!?! Swollen Lymph Node

    Thank you so much for your encouraging words. Did your cyst feel hard or like what did it feel like, if you don't mind me asking.
  2. Lymphoma?!?! Swollen Lymph Node

    I don't think I've been this freaked out over something in the past year. I'm so scared right now. So about 2 weeks ago I felt like I had a little bump behind my ear. It didn't really hurt, I showed it to my boss and she thought it was a pimple so I never thought anything of it again. Then last weekend I noticed it still hadn't gone away and felt kind of like....well kind of squishy/rubbery. I started to freak out a little but not too much. Then I got really sick this past week with a cold (I got it from my boyfriend and it came after the lump so I know it wasn't caused by the sickness) but I noticed it got a little bigger. I showed it to the doctor but he just thought it was from the sickness, even though I know it isn't. One of the main reasons I'm freaking out is because I'm still on an antibiotic from the doctor for my throat infection and the lymph node hasn't gone down at all. It's still there, rubbery, squishy, and cancerous. I've basically already planned my funeral. I know that a lot of the survival rates for lymphoma aren't that terrible but it's still so deadly, especially in people my age range (24). Now I do need to point out that I've been having teeth problems on that side of my mouth. My gums hurt and it feels like a tooth is about to pop out. I also know that my wisdom tooth needs out but I just don't have the time or money to do it right now. But that's in my mouth.....it wouldn't cause a lump behind my ear to swell. And I should point out that the lump is like literally directly behind my ear. Like not down at all but directly, almost in the crease. I can even kind of pick the skin up around it with my fingers and move it a little. I'm just freaking out guys. Someone please help!

  4. No Period-Pain on Side

    I'm going to try and make this as short and sweet as possible but for the past week I have been randomly having a pain on my right side. It only comes on about once or twice a day and so far has only happened while I've been laying down. It's like a strong ache. At first I was concerned it was my appendix but now I'm starting to fear it may be something else. Something more serious. I was supposed to start my period like 3-4 days ago and I'm almost never late. Plus, I've had all the hormonal signs I normally have. I went through the emotional trauma and I have this bumps that develop under my arm and I got my acne....everything.....but still no period. There's almost 0% chance of me being pregnant. I'm just starting to really get concerned that it's cancer of my ovaries or something like that. I've had the flu the past 2 days and I just recently got into a new relationship last week so I've had a little bit of stress but I'm just really freaking out that this is more serious. If any ladies have any advice I could really use it. Thanks guys.
  5. Breathing Problems! Scared!

    Hahahaha do not worry. It's not offensive. He didn't do it to get anything off. He was honestly concerned and he sat up right away and looked me in the eyes. Of course other stuff happened later bahahaha but in the moment it wasn't a pick up line. I guess I'm just going to try and stay positive. I'm under a lot of stress at work right now so maybe that's what is causing it. I'm having trouble breathing when I do exercise but that's probably because I eat terribly and don't exercise. I just notice it more now since he said something.
  6. Breathing Problems! Scared!

    Okay so here's the deal....I had a date the other day with a respiratory therapist. I didn't even think anything of it until we were sitting on his couch watching a movie and his head was laying on my chest. All of a sudden, out of nowhere, he says 'You can't breathe.' I thought he meant that I couldn't breathe because his head was on my chest but I felt fine and I was like 'No I'm fine.' But he sits up and says, in pretty broken English mind you, 'No, something is blocking your breathe.' Like.....uh.......ok? I freak out and immediately start worrying. My Spanish is pretty good but I was so worried I don't even know what he said. He said something like 'I don't know what it is but I'll have to read about it.' I'm freaking out at this time and I immediately start thinking that cancer has spread to my lungs. I mention it but I don't think he understands because I said it in English and he was like 'Well no probably not cancer.' but how is he supposed to know? That was on Sunday....it's Tuesday and I can't stop thinking about it. I can't ask him about it either because I was so worried for the rest of the date that I don't think they'll be another one. I need some help y'all.....I'm freaking out. I coughed up some phlegm today but not much and now I feel like I can't breathe. This is awful. I talked about it with my boss and she made it worse by saying 'Well everything happens for a reason .....maybe it's because something bad is happening.' Oh great....thanks. I already thought I was dying and now you confirm it. I need some help with this please. Should I be worried? I felt fine before and now my anxiety has me all up in a worrisome state.
  7. Intense Foot Pain

    Thanks for the replies guys. Thankfully I've been able to keep busy at work today but the pain was so bad this morning that I had to take some medicine and then it got bad again this afternoon and it's in my ankle now. I hate this, always freaking out that it could be something sinister. I don't even know what to think. Like I keep thinking cancer but then I think 'well maybe there's the hope that it's tendinitis' and then I think 'well maybe it's cancer and it's spreading'. I don't know. I'm so upset because my anxiety has gotten so much better over the past year and then I'll have random bouts of anxiety when stuff like this happens and it freaks me out. Like I said, I don't really have money to go to a doctor. But what you said utrocket09 about bad shoes...yeah I would think that would be the problem but I've been wearing good shoes since Tuesday and the pain hasn't gone away yet. I do wear flip flops a lot but if it was a flip flop problem then wouldn't it hurt in both of my feet?
  8. Intense Foot Pain

    So the past week or two I have been struggling with really intense foot pain on the top right of my right food....basically on my toes. It's so painful and sometimes too painful to walk. It also aches really bad when I'm laying in bed too. I barely exercise and only use my feet to walk occasionally. I'm a teacher but I don't teach full time so I'm only on my feet about 3-4 hours a day. The only thing I can think of that possibly could contribute to the pain are my shoes....which are awful and basically need to be thrown into the trash. They're flats and basically the side of my foot droops out of the shoe hahaha I'm really trying not to jump straight to home cancer. But I'm scared. I started complaining about it to my co-worker a couple days ago and she says she's concerned it's something really sinister....so that doesn't help me sleep at night. Any idea what this could be? I'm poor so I'd rather not go to the doctor for this. But all I can think about is getting bone cancer at 24.
  9. Severe Leg Pain- Bone Cancer?

    So this definitely can't be a pulled muscle. I'm not saying it's cancer but what else could it be? It gets worse as the day goes on and, though it doesn't hurt as bad as it did when I first posted this topic, it still really hurts. I especially notice it when I stand up, sit down, walk up stairs, walk in general, and even sitting in a certain position. What could it possibly be? It's painful, annoying, and I can tell it's making me me walk funny.
  10. Severe Leg Pain- Bone Cancer?

    Definitely should not have read that because now I'm 100% convinced it's bone. Because this morning it's not that bad. I was thinking 'yay! It's going away' but then I saw that and remembered how painful it was last night and how it's going to be the same thing today and now I'm freaking out.
  11. Severe Leg Pain- Bone Cancer?

    The only thing that really makes me think it's not a pulled muscle is the fact it's just one leg....not both. And I definitely can't describe myself as physically active enough to even think about pulling a muscle but I'm trying to keep an open mind...it's a possibility.
  12. Severe Leg Pain- Bone Cancer?

    Okay I will definitely try that. I guess I'm just really freaking out because now my whole leg hurts but I think it's because I've been moving it around so much trying to figure out what the pain is. I'm gonna go eat with my man, take some pain meds, and just try and relax. I'll update soon. Thanks wonderful people!
  13. Severe Leg Pain- Bone Cancer?

    Well it definitely hurts at the very top in the front and it's so painful when I'm sitting and the leg is bent to the side. I tried stretching it to see if it helped and ended up yelling out in pain instead. I wonder if it could be what you said about a tendon or ligament. What would that feel like exacelty? Because I'm almost positive it's not the muscle.
  14. Severe Leg Pain- Bone Cancer?

    So the past week I've been having pain at the very top of my left leg and it is very painful when I move it a certain way. When I'm sitting down....no problems but as soon as I stand up and start walking it really hurts. My co-worker said she thinks it's a pulled muscle but I can't get it out of my mind that it could be bone cancer because I'm constantly tired and the pain only hurts when I'm moving a certain way and it doesn't feel like muscle. Please I am so scared. Bone cancer is very common in people my age (24).
  15. Bump on Head

    You can pop it? How??? Like this thing is huge and under the skin. My friend looked at it and she said it just looks a little red but you can't see anything.
