I suffer with psoriasis on the scalp and it has recently got a lot worse and has caused the lymph nodes on the back of my hair line to swell. The swelling is causing a lot of pain down my neck and I am in a lot of discomfort. I have had a scan on the lymph nodes and they have confirmed that they don't think they are cancerous. Has anyone else experienced this?

Hi, I’m experiencing something similar too. I have had psoriasis for years and on my scalp has become worse, a few months ago I noticed lumps on my neck at the side 2 on my right and 1 on my left the doctor said nothing he was concerned about just swollen lymph nodes he took my bloods and said nothing concerning. But I asked to be referred to a specialist as I recently found out I was pregnant so have been worried it’s something sinister. I see an ENT he put a camera down my nose into throat and said he’ll put me for a ultrasound and biopsy on the 4th of December. But I am so worried as I have googled a lot of stories. But I’m not sure if it is my psoriasis causing the problem, as I have never had swollen lymph nodes in my neck before. Especially because they aren’t going down. But I am otherwise we’ll just quite tired. Have yours gone down atall? Do you feel more reassured after the ultrasound?
