A year ago I had one lump & now I have several. Some are movable and some are very hard. They are all around my neck & some have gone into my hairline in the back. I have headaches every day. Also, I have developed small nodules on my upper front part of my arms & in my groin area under skin. Hope someone has some suggestions.

Hi, I would have to recommend you ask for a second opinion, mainly because of the amount of lumps you have & the rate at which they seem to be appearing, & the areas they are appearing in. In the same breath i would like to put your mind at rest by telling you that i have 3 lumps in the left side of my neck, which have been there for years now, and they are more of a glandular response and have never caused me any problems. When i get low or unwell, i get these lumps appear at the back of my neck also, and they too can travel up past my hair line. I also get them in my left armpit, but less frequently. Hopefully yours are the same, but it's best to be safe than sorry.

Please see another doctor. As the others say this is not normal. The least they should do after running blood tests is to do a needle biopsy.
Do these hurt when you feel them or are they painless? Swollen lymph nodes due to infection are painful. Also, have you had a mammogram? Chest X-ray? Are you being treated for any other type of disease?
Lots to consider and do this soon while whatever it is remains easily treatable.

I agree that they sound like swollen lymp nodes also, but PLEASE do get a second opinion. Maybe see an endoctrinologist. They will check you for everything. If you call one or need a referral make sure they know it is urgent or you may have to wait a month to 6 weeks to get in. Lumps under the armpit, can be a sign of breast cancer. Not to scare you or anything. Do you check your breasts monthy in the shower with soapy hands like you should be? You need to do this too. Are they sore or just lumps? You have lymph nodes at the base of the skull also. I got one infected by rubbing it thinking I could rug out a headache so dont rub them! My lymph glands under my chin swell up all the time do to alleriges they tell me. Do please see another doctor if at all possible to rule out anything that could be wrong. Best wishes to you... Mary
