You could always consider going to a GOOD  ER, if your doctor can't get you in.  Sometimes we mistakenly think our symptoms are one thing, we are not doctors, and
sometimes you need the professional take.  The literature says women have different symptoms than men for cardiac stuff.   Somebody, somewhere might want to start working you up.  See what you think.   Sometimes more than one thing is going on.

The symptoms of oral cancer include patches or sores inside the mouth or on the lips, fever, weight loss, bleeding in the mouth, difficulty in swallowing, earache and a lump in the neck.

The symptoms of lung cancer are chest infection that does not get better, shortness of breath, coughing up blood-stained phlegm (sputum), chest discomfort, loss of appetite and loss of weight.

Do you have a family history of any kind of cancer? Are you sure it is a lymph node swelling? It can be a salivary gland swelling.

Chest pain with shortness of breath and enlarged lymph nodes are found in a variety of conditions like SLE, lupus, tuberculosis and rib fracture.

Exact diagnosis can only be made after X-Rays, blood tests, sputum tests or lymph node biopsy.

Pls take an appointment from your physician and get yourself examined.

Do keep us posted.
