Lump in neck

Hi everyone,

I am 12 months since treatment has finished and have found a hard pea size lump on the side of my neck.

the home doctor came and had a look as it's night time and he couldn't feel it at first and then we finally found it. He said a node under 1cm isn't significant and mine was about .5.

he said not to be worried but book the GP to get an ultrasound.

he also said it would be rare for it to spread to the neck.

i was originally staged 1b1 with nodes, had a radical hydro, chemo and radiation!


help put my mind at ease. I am so scared!!


Sorry, I don't have any information about this but didn't want to read and run. Sending lots of love and support. I know our minds run away with us in time like these. Stay off google is my advice. 
do you have an appointment for ultrasound yet?
