Had GP and ENT look at this pea sized hard lump in the side of my neck. One says node one says knot. Been there 3 months. Good cbc. No tests, concern?
Lymph node: If the general practitioner or the otolaryngologist think that this is a lymph node, and it is FIRM and has been present for 3 months, I would recommend that you have it biopsied. Pea sized is on the small side for a lymph node, however. You should ask the ENT physician directly "should this be biopsied, " and if he or she thinks not, ask them to provide a rationale (they may have a good one) ...Read more

Can wasabi peas go bad and cause food poisoning? Ate some for first time ever, already were sitting in cupboard for while. Felt flu-ish next few days
Not food poisoning: Dried foods like wasabi peas are an unlikely cause of food poisoning, and "flu-ish" symptoms don't suggest it. The main symptoms of food poisoning are gastrointestinal -- nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, etc. And food poison symptoms generally clear up on their own within 1-2 days. Almost certainly your symptoms have nothing to do with the wasabi peas. See a doctor if they continue or become severe. ...Read more
