Going to hospital - lump on neck watch

    Hi,

    I posted a thread a few days back about a lump on my neck. I can't sleep because of the night sweats I'm getting and then even when I do sleep it's really not a very refreshing one. I'm constantly tired, have developed a rash on my chest that hasn't gone after three days, and to top it off my neck now aches when I move it.

    I've made a specialist ENT appointment, which is next Thursday, but I don't think I can wait that long.

    Is it okay to go to A&E about something like this? I don't want to make a mountain out of a molehill, but I genuinely feel awful and not very well. I'm worried it's something serious.

    I don't want to go back to my GP becayse she's done all she can do by referring me, so i don't see how much help it would do.

    Thanks.

    going to a&e sounds fine if your that worried about it.

    i have a lump on my neck and ive had it for about 7-8 years, basically my gp said that it's a lump of liquid that gets bigger when im about to get ill, i really have no clue.
    but yeah, it gets bigger just when im about to get a cold. weeeiirrddd.

    That would be a lymph gland.

    If you're really feeling much worse then A&E would be appropriate. If it's just that you don't want to wait until next week, it'll be a wasted visit. Neck lump + night sweats needs further investigation, though it doesn't necessarily need to be done as an inpatient, and A&E won't be able to speed up you referral any more.
