How large is it and is it tender?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
it is small but kind of deep . no not tender

Most likely it's a benign cyst and not a lymph node then

It certainly doesn't sound like any indication of cancer

So I see no reason for you to worry here

That said, since I can't examine you, have your doctor take a look

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
