Customer Question

Hi i have 4 swollen lymph nodes. 1 under my right jaw another under left jaw one on back of my head and other on my supraclavicular on the left side. Since 2015 i have lost 16lbs in weight which is not like me. Im concerned i have cancer and my doctor has done nothing about it. Im so scared
JA: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?
Customer: I have a deviated septum. Iron deficiency. I constantly go thr toilet all the time especially at night
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.

Thank you for your question, IF these nodes are palpable and enlarged then these need a biopsy to ensure these are not due to serious problems like cancer. I suggest you get a second opinion from another doctor if your primary doctor is not helping.

I have had a ct scan done on 1 of them by a ent who said benign but these others developed. I have lost the weight too. Any ideas
