Hi I had tonsillitis about a month ago (even though


Q: Hi I had tonsillitis about a month ago (even though I have no tonsils) I also had a very swollen glad in my neck at the same time only on my right side. my GP gave me some antibiotics and it cleared everything up apart from the swollen gland it did go down but not completely then last week it swelled up even bigger than before and it was very sore all down my neck so I went back to the doctor and she has given me a different antibiotic. I only have one day left of the antibiotics and the gland has gone down but again not completely....I have stupidly researched it online and I am now convinced and very scared that I have hodgkins lymphoma disease....I have a couple other symptoms too.....I sweat a little during the night and I have been unusually breathless lately...what are the chances I have it?
