…that we have over 500 nodes (as in lymph, sebum, other fluids) in our face and neck alone?
I discovered this during my consultation with kind Mr Patel, the consultant who’s going to make sure the lump on my neck is removed. Seems strange, too; all those years striving to be a Doctor, and once you become a really high-ranking medical specialist, you do away with the title and become plain old Mr, Mrs or Ms again.
I went to Whipps Cross Hospital, which is much improved since my last visit 5 years ago. The renovation works seem to have created cleaner brighter spaces and more cheerful and more polite staff, too. My appointment was delayed by just over half an hour, but everyone was so pleasant, I didn’t mind (much).
