Incy Wincy Spider

I was bitten by a Violin Spider about 18 months ago on the right hand side of my neck.  No idea how he got there or why he chose that spot – but perhaps it was the universe trying to point something out to me which I failed to notice.violinspider

It was then that I discovered a lump on the left hand side of my neck.  I didn’t think anything of it.  I had no discomfort or pain from it.  It was just there.  I assumed it was a swollen gland caused by the spider bite.  I did some research on spider bites and some sites suggested there may be swelling for a few months.

I did see my GP at the time who provided me with a cream for the bite.  It healed quickly and life went on.

However, the lump was still there.

Almost 18 months later, I returned to my GP with a sore foot.  I am seldom ill so I don’t frequent my GP very often, so whilst I was there I pointed out that I had a lump on my neck which had been there for quite some time.  He pocked and prodded a bit and thought it required some investigation.

So this is the start of my story……..
