Medical question, is this something I need to really worry about?

I have enough to worry about right now. The doctor has already been called, they are going to try an fit him in. Last night when DH took his shirt off i saw a lot of swelling around the base of his neck. Its very soft and squishy and kind of breathes with him like a poofy necklace under his musculature that is separated by tendons so it looks like several bubbles of swelling.

Any Ideas what this could be and should I be worried?

With DD being so sick and other DD having a LEAP and Bill is sick enough I swear. I am imagining head cancer, perferations, all kinds of shit.

Could be a lot of things. It could be a simple infection that caused it or it could be a strange form of shingles or several other things. I wouldn't worry about it until you see a doctor or if it gets worse right now.

Thank you.  DD has testing tomorrow and she looks worse everyday.  The one with the LEAP doesnt worry me so much , even if she has cervical cancer which is likely she will probably be just fine.

Bill I dunno, I dont know what will take him down but I feel like its coming.

(((((((((((((((Rene)))))))))))))))) You hang in there, OK? I know stress can eat a person alive if allowed to and I have definitely been there and done that many times.

Any chance he's on a new type of medication that may have caused some type of allergic reaction?

I hope the doctor can fit you in and you can find out what is going on with Bill.

Hi- Hang in there. I know it's easy to think the worst, and try not to do that. As said above, could be a simple infection, allergy reaction, abcess, lipoma (fat lump)-

can you let us know after you see the doc?

((Hugs)) Really, try not to stress. I'm an N.P, and when something is going on with hubby, I say "call your doc" because I don't want to stress, or I start going through all the worst things in my head-  hard to be logical when it's so close to home sometimes :)

 keep us posted. Hang in there. Too much going on at the same time :(
