On a recent visit to my primary care dr I mentioned a lump on my throat just under the jaw. It's not painful and has been there for months. He was cavalier about it, since it hadn't grown and wasn't causing any other symptoms. My derm doctor prescribed an antibiotic saying if it doesn't clear up not to let it go and he'd refer me to another doctor.
Have any of you experienced something similar with doctors? I am not sure what to do or if it's serious or not. I'm 72 yo and in great shape and follow a healthy diet. My only health issues are low thyroid and gerd.
Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated.
