    Exclamation Found what feels like a painful lump in neck

    Itís just in front of the angle of my jaw, upwards and pretty deep in. It feels very tender in the area and not on the other side. Thereís also what feels to be some sort of lump on that side and not the other. Initially I was worried it was submandibular gland cancer but having located both my submandibular glands, they feel the same so this is something else.

    I can feel movable lymph nodes on both sides, so with there being lymph nodes in the area, Iím worried this painful lump is lymphoma.

    itís definitely not on the other side; I feel like I can get my thumb far into the space on the non effected side but on the side with the pain, there feels to be some sort of mass.

    Iíve recently just got over one fear (testicular cancer) after going for an ultra sound but now itís been replaced by this. I donít know whether to go back to the doctors or not. On one hand I know I have severe Heath anxiety but on the other, this feels like it could be a serious problem.

    What should I do?

    many thanks.

    I donít have any other reason that it just popped into my head to check my neck for lumps.

    Well if you are really that worried then please call a doctor and ask to be seen but we have no way of knowing what it is.

    I expect you have been googling though???

    actually no, I’ve done enough of that in the past, that’s the one thing I have stopped doing. I’ve just done enough research in the past to feel as though it is lymphoma. I just struggle knowing when it’s something I need to get checked out and when it isn’t. I mean I’ve been to the doctors so many times.

    Re: Found what feels like a painful lump in neck

    I’ve determined that what I’m feeling is indeed some sort of lymph node. I think there’s one in the same position round about on the other side of my jaw, but that one is movable.

    The thing I’m worried about doesn’t feel overly hard but it doesn’t move around like the other node does. It also seems to be buried deeper and less well defined.
