My lymph node is hard but not moveable and I have no other signs or infection like sore throat. I'm mid 40's and think it's cancer. Going to Dr. And the node is painless.

Same...my 21-year-old son was just seen by our practitioner...he's a great doctor, but he isn't reassuring. He's analytical and when they're deep in thought, while examining, you get more nervous.

+Oryx, The Taken King I'm so sorry to hear that.. you need to tell your mom to take you to the doctors as soon as possible... it's important to get checked, and stop eating dairy products.. Please update me on your condition, I'll be keeping you in my prayers today :) don't worry so much, just go to the doctor asap ok??? take care of yourself.

In reply to Morgan Alexis, I had a small pea sized lump on my neck some years back
when I was around 34 years old. In time, it kept on growing until it was the size of a
small pebble or a cherry tomato. I went to my doctor, and he felt it, and it was hard
when squeezed, It could be moved under the skin, so he didn't think it was serious.
However, I was sent to a specialist, and had it removed. It turned out to be a benign
cist. Still, it's always worth getting things checked out.

I'm 13. I've had a swollen lymph node in my neck for about 3 years now. I had a surgery scheduled last year but it was cancelled and never rescheduled. Both me and my mom are worried about it and want it to be removed we just need to talk to my doctor again. The thought of it scares me because brother had his removed about 8 years ago and broke out in staff infection and was in the hospital for about 2 weeks.

I have a hard lymph node behind my ear.

In reply to Pam Swiger, I developed a pea sized lump on my neck way back in 1991
Within a matter of four or five months it had grown to around the size of a cherry
tomato just like yours. The lump could be moved under the skin when pinched, yet
it felt hard not soft. I had it removed some months later, in 1992, and when I got the
results, they told me it was a benign cist. I was told they usually begin from a blocked
pore, or hair follicle. Its a good idea to get it removed just to be sure.

I have just recently been diagnosed with an Inguinal Hernia on the left hand side of
my groin. I have been told that I will need surgery to repair this. One thing puzzles
me, and that is that the surgeon told me that he is going to do a biopsy of my lymph
node in that area. It has got me worried that maybe he has picked up on something
else going on down there when he examined me. Can anyone enlighten me?

I have the same thing on the right side of my neck in the middle. It was first noticed when I was 6 or 7 as a child by my parents, who brought me to the doctor just in case, only to find it was a cyst, It was fairly small but stuck out a little bit to the point they could notice it. Now Im 21 and its a little larger but im assuming from be growing, its very soft and you can sort of shift it with your finger tips, though it doesnt stick out noticeably anymore, its also painless. does this help
