Thread: Lump in neck

    Lump in neck

    My husband has a lump on the side of his neck. Itís about the size of a pea, maybe slightly bigger, and is moveable between your fingers. It feels smooth. He noticed it a couple of weeks ago and Iím not sure if itís smaller but itís definitely not bigger than it was then. He doesnít seem that concerned about it, he says he has had a similar lump before and it went away but as a health anxiety sufferer itís causing me worry! Does this sound like a cause for concern? Thanks!

    No it doesn't sound serious - lymph node or gland or boil

    Lump in neck and blood tests

    Hi

    Iíve posted before, back in June, about my husband having a lump in his neck. It feels the same as a swollen gland, and if it wasnít persistent and had gone away Iíd not have been worried about it.
    Heís had it since at least May. Itís about the size of a baked bean, bigger than a pea. It feels smooth and moves when you touch it. It hasnít grown in size, but it hasnít reduced either.
    I was getting quite worried about it so he made an appointment with the GP. The GP said as he felt otherwise well it wasnít likely to be serious, but heíd refer him to ENT and also take bloods. He got his bloods last week and the nurse told him if it was fine then he wouldnít hear anything but if anything showed up they'd call.
    Today the doctors phoned and asked him to make a phone appointment to discuss his results. So obviously something is wrong. His appointment isnít until next week, which he says must mean it canít be too serious, but I know how busy our local GP is and they told him thatís the first appointment they had available so I donít necessarily think itís a sign itís nothing serious.
    Iím going out of my mind now with worry that something is really wrong.
    Has anyone experienced anything similar?
    Thanks in advance!

    Re: Lump in neck and blood tests

    Hell RedBanana,
    My husband has lumps all over his body and has had some removed. They are lypoma lumps. He did have one that was in his neck but larger than a pea and that one was shringed out. I am sure that if your husband's lump is serious he would be seen straight away. I can understand your worry and concern though. Perhaps the GP will discuss the options he will have. Sorry if my spelling is not quite right.
