Conditions with symptom: 'swollen neck'
My 9month son has a very swollen tongue. He has been to hospital with it and we have been told that its just the way its developed. Lately he has it sticking all of the time and also has lumps on his neck which the doctor says is just swollen lymph nodes. it is only one side that is swollen and the same side of his neck with the lumps. Could this be the same problem as the boy from the monday night programme? Who would i have to ask my doctor to refer me to?
Hi I've been suffering with slight swollen tonsils for about 2 weeks. With the occasional white gunk on them. Sometimes was able to get white stuff out of them but 2 lymphnods have swollen on my neck. Went to docs about it and he said its just a lymphnode and nothing to worry about. But recently when one of the nodes swells it makes my neck achy. Also have more whitr gunk on them than usual today. Should I go back or just ride it out?

For years now ive had permanently swollen tonsils and have been to the doctors numerous times. They checked for tonsillitis and glandular fever and both came back clear. Ive had swabs taken as well as given antibiotics etc and nothing has changed. The doctors have now put on my record that i have permanently swollen tonsils but aren't doing anything about it even though i struggle to eat, swallow tablets, at times struggle to breathe and find it very uncomfortable to sleep as i have to have my hand under my head as my neck is really sensitive to any pressure including clothing and jewellery.

I have a cyst on the side of my neck. I have had it for a couple of years but as it wasn't bothering me and not too big (1cm) it was left. Last weekend it started to swell and went red. It is now really sore and swollen-probably about 3cm now. Will it burst?
I ended up going to A&E as it was a Sunday and I couldn't move my neck but apparently they won't touch anything on a neck!! It did however, drain a bit that night which took some of the pressure away. My GP gave it a good squeeze, which hurt a lot, and got a good lot of gunk out. He recomended that I do the same at home and I'll be seeing him again this week. Feeling much better now and although still a bit red it is about the same size as it's always been. I certainly was not offered any anesthetic before hand- lol
go and see your gp he will send you to your local hospital and get it drained under a general i have had loads 19 in the last year and a very large skin grapht on the back of my neck due to these cyst,it will only get bigger and really sore.hope this helps you.
