Re: Could this be lymphoma? After recent appointment with blood specialist?

I think that if you had something bad like cancer, then the consultant you saw would be a little more worried. Not to mention you said all your blood tests came up clear. Usually in a hodgkins, leukemia case, your labs would be abnormal if anything. Did you have a cbc w/ differential? That alone will be able to tell the doc and consultant if there were any abnormalities. Other than the nodes, do you have any other symptoms? I would imagine you would if you had cancer. A positive ANA means you have an auto immune virus, which makes me feel like you have the nodes from something else.. have you been tested for lupus? Good luck and keep us posted.
