I am a 21 year old non smoker, currently suffering a few days of neck pain, with occasional pain swallowing, sometimes minor ear ache (only on left side). I once had an inflamed lyph node (some months ago) but then nothing unil now. I have a history of hypochondria, and identifying pains with no cause, and was begining to worry about having pancreatic cancer or some bowl problems before, but this certainly seems real. Pain comes and goes.
It basically began when I read about Hitchens getting throat cancer some days ago, but that doesnt make the pain or worry less real. I've felt my neck and can feel tons of little lumps and bumps, none seem unusual to me... but I wouldnt know.
What sould I do? is it cancer? infection? absys? or a panic attack?
