Hi, I have a quick question...I went to the doctor today who said that the pain (lump) in my lymph nodes/throat/jaw was something that started with" ego..." he is now on vacation until next week and I am wondering if anyone knows the name of this so that I am able to look it up. Thanks so much for your help!!

It is the doctor that has an "ego" issue....he or she should be using terms that are understandable by the patient.

I am very sorry, but I don't have a clue what he meant...can't think of anything medical that starts with "ego".

Ok, thank you! I appreciate the answer. It was a long name which started with "ego," and I made the mistake of not writing it down.
