Hi my name is Ahmed, 27 years old, I noticed an enlarged of my left lymph anodes (under my jaw) for around 2 months, before noticing, I was infected with severe throat pain (no fever) and nose block. I describe my doctor about the enlargement and he prescribed me with an anibiotic medication for a week. However after the medication, still the enlarged lymph node can be felt by touching, it concern me a lot, some times I feel it reduced in size the other time I feel it stayed the same or slightly stretched. I cannot say the feeling of the touch it some times feel like a tender or rubbery or movable or warm (hard to differentiate).
I always feels like that I carry a cancer disease, I always see myself at the mirror for any indication of lump in my nick, this worry feeling begin when my mother get affected with breast cancer (thanks god she get cured), and my friend lately get affected with nick cancer. I have been in deep concern and stress for a time, cannot stop touching my throught. do you think this stress can cause this enlargement. I also get a nick pain (cannot move my nick) for three days prior the infection.
