Non-hodgkins lymphoma,swelling in supercervical area,red scaly skin,mono.

I am a 55 year old female. My two older sisters have both had non- Hodgkins lymphoma . About a month ago I noticed visual swelling in the supracervicular (spelling?) area of my neck/shoulder/clavical. I also have had a red scaly unhealed skin irritation in this same area for about 5 months. I have had numerous cases of mono dating back to the age of 7. It is dfficut to do palpatation in this area on myself. Is this something to be concerned about?

hi mam, with a strong family history of NHL itzz not necessary u worry about it but a significant supraclavicular lymphadenopathy does require tests jus to rule out infection vs lymphoma. kindly get examined by a specialist ( palpate the node shape, size,consistency) get a FNAC/ SERUM LDH if necessary. as u have not mentioned any A/B SYMPTOMS OF lymphomas ( fever/drenching night sweats/weightloss more than 10% of bodyweight, anorexia ). kindly meet ur physician and get the things done. all the best
