Specializes in Internal Medicine

Asthma: You will need a proper evaluation by your doctor including a chest xray & tests for asthma. Swelling in the neck on the left side may represent a prominence related to the upper segment of the left lung. May be related to symptoms of shortness of breath & not necessarily cancer. Good luck.
