Enlarged lymph nodes in my neck

Hi all, I was diagnosed with kidney cancer Feb 2018, open radical nephrectomy in March. Ive had 2 clear scans but in Feb 2019 I developed an ache in my neck that has just got worse and then a swelling above collarbone. Can’t feel any lumps but an ultrasound I had this week showed enlarged lymph nodes in both sides of my neck. I am now awaiting a letter from my consultant. I’m panicking that it could have spread to my lymph nodes, I also have an enlarged lymph node in my chest but that hasn’t grown since Christmas. My friends and family are telling me it’s an infection but I don’t have a sore throat, cold or cough. 

Has anyone had the same or can give me some advice on what will happen next. Sorry for long post xx 

  • Hi

    I'm not a member of this group but I noticed that your post had gone unanswered. By replying to you it will bump your post back to the top of the page where it will hopefully be seen by someone with the right experience to help. 

    If you don't get any response you could post your question about what happens next in 'ask a nurse' and one of the specialist cancer nurses will aim to respond within 2 working days. I'd normally provide a link but can't do it from my phone. However, if you look in the 'ask an expert' tab you'll find the right place.
