Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hi again , Dr D,I have a weird question for you :I was feeling my neck this morning like I always do I thought I felt one side being thicker than the other ? I don't feel anything hard in there like a marble or anything like that , but I swear the left side felt thicker? I don't want to say swollen because it doesn't look " swollen " and it looks normal , it's just that it seems like it grew overnight ? Is that possible or am I crazy ?

Could it be muscular ? I was at a concert last night and was yelling .
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 years ago.

yes, it could be muscular

if you were yelling at a concert last night, that could have done it.

don't stress out. you don't have to be worried.

what concert did you see? probably lots of singing and smoke.

it doesn't sound like anything to worry about.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 years ago.

you don't have throat cancer.

you are letting your anxiety and worry get out of control.

you need to stop feeling your throat if it is worsening your anxiety.

yes, it is normal to feel small lymph nodes in your neck.

you need to rest your voice and drink hot tea with lemon and sooth your throat today.

you don't have to worry about throat cancer.
