Does lumps in jawline with tonsils & swollen lymphnode suggest lymphoma?
I am a 25 yr old male and last year I noticed a lump right under my jawline and my doctor told me not to worry. I went to see a ENT who said my tonsils were only irritated on the surface but the tonsil as a whole looked fine. A year later I have noticed a new swollen lymphnode on the right side of neck and my right ear does not hurt but it feels swollen on the inside but no pain. I do not want to keep running to the doctor but if I have an infection or even lymphoma I would like to know.
Hi. Thanks for your query and an elucidate history. It is good that you have already shown to the Doctors. Since you are yet bothered about it, the best way is to go for ultrasono guided FNAC- fine needle aspiration cytology.
It is better to get this removed (excised) for 2 reasons. 1> your get rid of the disease and 2> you get the histopathological diagnosis- makes you tension-free that it is not a cancer.
