Had a lump in my neck since just after xmas, went to the docs in January and they advised swollen lymph node and if it haddent gone by 6 week's to return.

Went back this morning (a different doc) and she advised itsnot a lymph node, doesnt know what it is and she wants tI refer me to hospital, then sat there filling in a urgent cancer referral form.

I am now complelety shitting myself, anyone had anything similar? It's roughly 2cm, she Said triangle shape lump? Hadn't grown any bigger but hasnt got smaller.

No just had ultrasound they didnt feel the need to do a biopsy! Think the doctor I saw was being cautious!
