Dr. Natasha :

hello

Dr. Natasha :

have you spoken to your doctor about these symptoms yet?

Dr. Natasha :

please type and say hello

Customer:

Hello, I have been once a while ago but they said it was probably just bruising. The lump is getting bigger though and it has started getting very uncomfortable this evening

Dr. Natasha :

did you have any labs done, including thyroid

Customer:

No they didn't offer anything like that. I had just got over a bad cough so I think they just suspected it was due to that

Dr. Natasha :

Well, it sounds like you need to have some labs done, including blood count for anemia and thyroid

Dr. Natasha :

the lump can be an infection, cyst

Dr. Natasha :

unlikely to be cancer

Dr. Natasha :

but clearly you need a proper examination by your doctor and you need some lab work done

Dr. Natasha :

I will check in with you in 2 weeks to see how you are doing

Customer:

Okay, thank you very much. I will get an appointment as soon as I can

Dr. Natasha :

you are welcome

Dr. Natasha :

?

Customer:
