I have regular lymph node pain in the right hand under the arm. The scans of that are awaited. The doctor has said I’m not mean, though. OP, I’m just mentioning this in hopes of maybe relieving some anxiety while you wait. I had a painful lymph node many years ago and, after various tests, the decision was made to surgically remove it for further testing was all.
Yep. I was told to worry when swollen nodes don’t hurt. I had several painful swollen (some golf ball sized) lymph nodes in my neck up to my jaw and on my scalp. My doctor’s reassurance was cancer usually doesn’t hurt.
