    Re: Worried about lymphoma

    He has ruled out cancer so he won't be thinking anything other than arranging a routine follow up appointment.

    Ok, good, I'm glad that's how you interpreted it. I wasn't sure how to interpret it. I think it was difficult to me to unravel his thinking because of HA. Thanks.

    If he was removing a node, it would be the 'odd' one, not necessarily the submandibular one (unless they're one of the same)! Your specialist is obviously keeping an eye on it which is the correct course of action to take

    I think your HA is playing its part in how you have interpreted this letter and it's really good that you can see this now.

    I interpret it as being that according to their tests they are satisfied that you are healthy and have nothing to be concerned about, whilst the check-up is to just double-check everything is all good after a small period of time and moreso keep an eye on things.

    Take care!

    Thank you 🙂 you're probably right.

    I think with just all of the stuff that's going on I'm getting more anxious than I should.

    If it was just Coronavirus I think I personally would be dealing ok. I'm not worried about me catching it, but I'm worried about my mum and dad... they're 70 and 75 with apnoea and asthma respectively. I just want to focus on them and make sure they have what they need. They are my only family.

    But with these lumps as well, I'm jumping from worrying about my parents, to worrying that maybe I do have cancer, to worrying about what it might be even if it isn't cancer... if this is a bad reaction to my IVF medication how will I ever have a family of my own?

    Then I start looking into a very bleak future where my parents are dead, and I have no family at all.

    Re: Worried about lymphoma

    Hi guys,

    Just an update. Lymph nodes are still enlarged, though they don't seem any bigger. It's been about 9 weeks since I first noticed them, now. The submandibular one is still like an enormous marble, I hate it.

    The only node that seems any different at all is the "odd" one on the side of my neck. It SEEMS flatter, in that it does not seem to be visibly protruding so much. Whichever angle I look at it from, the lump seems less prounounced. However, that could just be the flesh smoothing out over it. Also, it is still the same length. Can anyone think why that could be? What would cause a node to remain the same height and width, but become more flat?

    Still no other symptoms at all.

    My follow up appointment is 5th May, depending on the rona situation I guess. Does anybody know what the doctor will do? Will he want to remove the nodes since they haven't got smaller? Does it mean it could be cancer after all?

    Surely something must be wrong for them to be persistently enlarged. There must be a reason. Even if it's not cancer I'm worried it could affect my fertility treatment. Any advice or thoughts would be welcomed.

    Hope everyone's doing ok and staying safe.

    But these will only give you more HA "ammunition" and a potential to mull over and "process" every opinion offered from people who aren't experts in this field.
