Hey guys, maybe someone can help me with this, about a week and a half ago i found this lump in my neck rught under the jaw towards the neck, its been sore and swollen, the pain seems to traven down the right side of my neck a little bit, the left side hurts ocassionaly but i cant seem to find a similar lump there., i went to the doctory they said its an infection and gave me penicilin, ive been taking the penicilin for 5 days now and it hasnt done a single thing, im really starting to get worried, this couldnt be cancer could it? Could someone please give me some insight on this one?
I heard That if you always mess with the lump it will only stay longer. I know it's scary to feel a lump in your neck but if the doc told you that it's an infection then just let it go on it's own. I had one behind my ear and left it alone and sure enough it went away. Much luck you.
