Hello all. I've had larger than normal lymph nodes in my neck for well over 15 years now (easily feel them) and all tests in the past were fine. I lost a lot if weight recently(on purpose) and now my neck is much thinner and I'm not sure if my nodes have gotten bigger or just notice them easier since less neck fat. I figure best to get checked but not sure the best way to do it.
I have no insurance and can't afford to go the private hospital route if there is a problem. I've done body checks here but results always seem to take about a month. So are there better options? Having a family history of cancer made me realize quicker detection is always better.
Would going to a local clinic to talk to doc, who I assume would send me to a lab to get blood tests, be quick? Do I go to ER and go through that process get a quicker blood test turn around and have me in the system if issues?
Any thoughts on best and quickest way to get checked is appreciated. Thanks.
