    Coughed up what looks like raw chicken

    I’ve been feeling poorly for a while now but the doctor seems to have no concerns after blood draws and chest X-ray. But I got a terrible sore throat which went after 3 days but still lumps on throat wall. I then kinda like hacked back after the feeling of something in my throat had been irritating me for 2 lumps of flesh to come up.... same again the night after. Now a week later and I have the same feeling in my throat which has set off a tickling cough but can’t for the life of me fetch anything....

    Could this be lymphoma?

    I have had a lump in my neck for about 5 months but quite recently i have started to get more symptoms that may point to cancer more specifically lymphoma. It wasn’t painful at first but it now aches a little bit and has grown a bit aswell. The lump is hard and moves around. I also get drenching night sweats and have lost a bit of weight even though I have always been skinny. I get pain in the base of my head on the right side. The lump is located under my jaw on the right side and there is another....

    Mensenteric Lymphadenitis. Could this be early stages of Lymphoma?

    Really would like a 2nd opinion on what i got told at hospital yesterday, Ive had a few friends messaging me telling me i URGENTLY needed to go back to get a 2nd opinion because stuff like this shouldnt be taken lightly. Yesterday i got diagnosed with Mensenteric Lymphadenitis, which is where they done a CT scan on my abdomen with contrast (which was the most weird feeling ever like an extreme hot flash for a good 2minutes) and found out my lymph nodes in my stomach are enlarged which has inflamed....

    Blood in urine

    A year ago they found blood in my urine and sent me to a urologist. They did another UA, rectal exam, cystoscopy, CT Scan of my abdominal and pelvic area. They said I could have gallstones and fatty liver. There was moderate hydrothropy of the right lobe of my prostrate but everything was normal. I've also had a colonoscopy two years ago with one polyp that surgeon said had no way of being cancer. I've had two CT Scans of my head. 3 chest xrays, numerous blood work and it's all came back....

    Lymph Node

    Approximately a week and-a-half ago, I noticed two, small movable bumps near the base of the left-side of my neck. The bumps are pea-sized and I can move them with ease. The bumps are not tender and not noticeable by sight. I had a physical in early January and CBC was normal. I also was at a "doc in the box" about a week ago and he told me not to worry. That said, I worry. Is it normal to be able to feel your lymph nodes? How would I know if there is a problem?

    Ongoing pain

    stage 4 hodgkins 28 years ago, chemo and radiation over two year period. I have had dull pain under my ribcages and sharp, stabbing pain around the sternum since then, the answer I always get is that it is scar tissue from the radiation. If so, why is it getting worse. CT scans show scarring consistent with radiation treatment, blood work comes back within normal limits. Should I accept this answer? Is there anything else I can do besides pain meds? Heat, ice, rest are ineffective. I take lyrica....

    Lymph Node swellings...Sign of Cancer?

    Hello all, So I've been very troubled for the past month about lumps behind my ears on my neck. I went to the doctor for throat pain and a few days later found a sizable, firm, and barely movable lump behind my right ear. It's been about a month since I found it, and it has not responded to antibiotics and has not really changed in size. Recently, I also found a very small lump in the exact same position on the other side of my neck. This one was very small and barely noticeable, until I....
