Hi he should get it checked out.  i noticed a small lump in neck 2 years ago in april during pregnancy.  No testing were done either than a thyroid test which was neg. it went away during the end of pregnancy and a year later it came back. ultrasound showed enlarged node, ct scan showed 3.4 cm enalrged 3 tiny ones around thyroid and one big one behind chest wall 10.cm prognosis: hodgkins or malignant lymphoma.  Biopsy will be performed on June 10th to rule out mailgnancy.  my symptoms were fatigue lost of appetite, loss weight gain and heat flashes.. I performed a ultrasound of neck and left breast due to suspicious mass in breast, then a mamo confirmed mass then biopsy came out neg. Now back to neck..ct scan..everything done within 5 days.  As long as ur proactive, persistent to what u want u can get all testings done quickly with a stat written on prescription by authorizing dr.  Wish me luck. will post my results June 15th!!!
