Bump on neck, chin and head, spreading, infection. Lymph node cancer?

Hi I m 14 and i have a bump on my neck ...well actually i have more on my neck now and i think under my chin and bumps on my head. I went to a doctor like 3 or 2 or 4 weeks ago, and he said i should just sit and wait. But it s like multiplying like on my neck. He alsoo said that the worst that could happen if that it could become an infection , and not to touch it. I touched it like...a little but not really that, that much. If it continues multiplying then does that mean i have lymph node cancer? Please help me i m scared but i also want to face my problem. I will be going back to the doctors soon...

The bumps you see in your neck is most probably enlarged lymph nodes. Since you don't have fever the chance of being infection is very less. The chances of having a lymph nodal cancer cannot be excluded. So you need a surgeon consultation and need either an FNAC or preferably a biopsy from the node. Waiting and watching is hazardous and dangerous to life. So proceed ahead....
