    Unhappy so scared.. lymphoma

    I just had a baby almost two months ago and I had a itchy rash starting in march it went away right before I delivered my son and* now I'm itchy again* I went to dermatologist* yesterday and she sounded so sure it wasn't lymphoma when I asked and I had made a appointment* with my gp* and she said she wouldn't entertain the thought and thinks hormones.. but I'm still so scared.i don't have weight loss or nit sweats I am fatigued though and have the itchiness and bumpy rash* mainly on my stomach? I have no swollen nodes to my knowledge* either. I've had a chest xray* blood tests abdomen mri and all were normal . Any insight?*

    If you have a rash I'd assume it's something irritating that is causing your itchiness such as dermatitis or something.

    I have heard of lymphoma causing itchiness but never heard of it including an actual rash. I also have crazy itchy skin and lymphoma has crossed my mind but I doubt that would be the only symptom. I don't have a rash either just itchy everywhere. Could be many things though

    Is it an actual rash or is your skin just itchy?

    Did this start in late pregnancy?

    You have no symptoms of lymphoma, have been told by a medical professional it's hormonal (having a baby does that to you!) and you're fatigued (having a baby does that to you!). How is this remotely lymphoma? A rash is a rash... it happens. Try some OTC hydrocortisone cream.

    Absolutely! Has a medical professional confirmed this? And "swollen" is relative. Poking and prodding can and will irritate and cause nodes to swell too but you're not doing that are you?

    Cancer is an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells. It doesn't come and go nor does it stop once it starts.

    Re: so scared.. lymphoma

    I just can't stop crying and worrying. My family thinks I'm ridiculous and the Dr messaged me and straight up said you don't have cancer. My esr was 19 and range is up to 20 so it's within normal but my ra factor was elevated too and I'm just so lost and scared
