Is it an abcess, or is it cancer?

I just found a sore lump behind my left ear.

Cancer or abcess?

Think happy thoughts, Sean. Think happy.... Happy.....

Depending on where exactly it is, it might be a lymph node, do you feel a cold coming on?

It's on the bone, just where the bone meets the fleshy part of your neck. It feels really tender. And I never get colds.
I don't think it's cancer. It's just sore and unexpected, and seeing how may dad has throat cancer and that's on my mind... you know how the mind works.

It was a spider bite. Or something. It's almost gone now.

Talk about over-reacting.

Now I just gotta take care of this pesky bleeding from all my orifices....
