NHS GRAMPIAN - My Son found a lump under his neck when he was about 15/16 (2013/2014) which was a pea sized lump and was moveable. We took him to the GP who suggested he maybe had been ill and didn't realise and this was a resultant lymph node swelling. I'm a worrier and would ask my Son daily "Is it still there" and I think in time he got fed up of me asking he told me it was gone.
Anyway he then left for America for 4 years and then returned July 2020. We got talking one day about someone i knew with a neck lump and he said "Oh yeah i still have that lump on my neck". I was horrified and took him straight to the GP. GP wasn't sure if it was lymph node of cyst however referred him to radiology.
Over a year passed waiting and finally we had a date to see radiology and would you believe it the day before the appointment we got a call to say they were cancelling! no explanation why, just were sorry were cancelling! absolutely shocking! I take some comfort from the fact my son has had this for a number of years, however it does not get away from the fact it could be something serious!
We're now sat wondering what happens next as we were given a number to call however no one ever answers. This is the real pandemic! people waiting to be seen by specialists and getting cancelled and then people presenting with serious and far gone conditions by the time they are seen!
