Reffered to ENT for long term swollen node on neck, bloods normal and now I have a swollen supraclavicular lymph node on the right side, worry?
I am concerned:
Supraclavicular lymph node enlargement is always concerning for possible underlying malignancy. Younger patients (under 40 years old) are more likely than not to prove not to have a malignant cause for the enlarged lymph nodes.
The prognosis is not as good over the age of 40. In this age group the biopsy is more likely to show a malignancy (cancer). SEEhttp://bit. Ly/1EA25af ...Read more

Infectious mono: Mono is much more common than lymphoma, and if the blood work indicated you had mono - that seems to fit with the clinical symptoms you describe.
