Strange pain neck, chin, and upper chest

Hello,

I'm a male, 27 years old.

For the past couple months ive been experiencing a strange set of uncomfortable pains.

The pain starts in my neck, just to the left of my Adams Apple. The pain is constant and feels like it is coming from the area of a lymph node. I also have pain that feels like it's going down that same side of my neck into the area just on and under my collarbone. In addition to this, I have the similar feeling pain directly under my chin.

Occasionally I also get an odd sensation directly around my Adams apple.

I'm sick of the pain and want it to go away, but I don't know what it is.  

I've been to my family doctor and she said it was probably just muscle strain, as I have a history of bruxism.

I've also gone to an ENT, and they took tests for allergies.

I'm getting afraid that it may be some type of cancer, getting kind of paranoid. Can anyone put my mind at ease?

Thanks!

Hey there,
Bud, sounds like I have had this exact same feeling, and the exact same fear. Wondering if you had heard anything?
Feels very strange.
Mine is, however, on the right side of my body rather than my left.

hope to hear
