    Danny, I’m in a similar situation. I for some reason cannot create a new thread. I had a weird tight/tingly/popping sensation in my neck and then noticed my right tonsil was larger than the left (not inflamed). Saw ENT. She agreed, scoped but said it looked healthy. Ordered CT. While waiting for my CT (two weeks), I discovered 2 palpable lymph nodes bilaterally. They have to sort of be searched for, they aren’t...

      What an ordeal! I’m so sorry to hear that. How large was the enlarged node, if you don’t mind me asking? Did they suspect it was cancer after your CT (despite not seeing a primary)? I had a CT and the report simply states that it is presumed to be reactive and given size criteria, not deemed pathological. The radiologist concludes it should be monitored on follow-up. I’m confused because I didn’t think size sho...

        I posted here a bit ago but my post never showed up. My story is basically this: I started having this weird sensation in my neck at the end of May. I started rubbing my neck and eventually it became a bit tender but more of a swollen, tingly feeling than anything. PCP wasn’t helpful. ENT (self-referred) said my right tonsil was larger than the left but not huge, put on antibiotics. She ordered a CT because she sa...

          Can I ask about your lymph node and symptoms prior to diagnosis? I, too, have enlarged lymph nodes (at least 3) in the neck and some other symptoms and haven’t been able to find answers. Did you have a CT of the lymph nodes and still were told it wasn’t cancer? That’s where I’m at... I’ve had a CT, been told they are enlarged but probably reactive. Ball stopped there. I’ve been trying to figure this out for nearly 2 ...

            I’m very worried that I may have HNC... here is the story (sorry if it’s super long). In March I went to dentist and pointed out these growths on my tongue that had been there for about a year (I know, I know). The dentist did a veloscope exam as well as a visual and physical exam. He said they are just normal pappillae of the tongue. I had also made an appointment with an ENT so I followed up. ENT did a scope and...

              Just wanted to send ((hugs)). I’m in a similar boat. Just had my CT yesterday but haven’t heard anything yet. I think the biggest difference for me is I have 2 palpable lymph nodes (on either side of the neck). They are seemingly moveable and maybe 1 cm. My CT was also ordered for reassurance but my ENT didn’t feel the enlarged nodes, those cropped up (or I first noticed them) between my ENT appointment and my CT. I ...
