The Cause Of The Lump In The Neck On The Right And Pain?
In the afternoon, I have a question. My name is Ennie and I am 17 years old. I have neck lumps on the right and left, the right size on the ultrasound is about 5 cm, and the left side is smaller than the right, when pressed on the left sometimes it hurts sometimes not, then sometimes it is not pressed but it hurts. Another symptom was that I had anemia yesterday, my blood was low, my appetite was reduced, my body felt tired, dizzy, I felt pain from my upper back to my lower back until my lower back hurt, often followed by my stomach felt aching. Then my head feels sore in the lower back sometimes, the back of the neck feels heavy and the head feels sore. Yesterday when I had anemia I often sweated in the afternoon, and felt tired at night. But now my anemia symptoms are gone, but the part of my head still hurts in the lower back. Is it possible that the symptoms above are the effect of the lump or are these symptoms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer? Please explain and the next steps I have to do, thank you!
