Suffer from sore on the scalp. History of ovarian cancer. Swollen painful lymph nodes on the neck, headache. Leukemia?

I am 44 years old, female, I have had ovarian cancer but removed with surgery15 years ago. Boyhood of my grandmothers died before 40 with cancer. I am now suffering from a single sore on my scalp at the hair line. It has healed and returned for almost 6 months now. I also have swollen painful lymph nodes on both sides of my neck that are causing pain and a stiff neck . I was put on a sulphur antibiotic for 10 days with no change. Now I have a horrible headache.....I am worried about leukemia since that is strong on both sides.

Welcome to HCM,
It seems that you have got some infection on scalp giving rise to painful enlarge lymph nodes on both sides of neck.
Treat the scalp lesion with oral antibiotic medicine and you will be alright.
Apply antibiotic cream on sore part after proper cleaning with anti septic lotion.
Go for treatment of underlying infection on scalp like fungal infection, dermatitis, dandruff if there.
Ok and bye.
