Re: Already received my e mail from endo....

Hi Lori
It is true that some people have swollen lymph nodes and I am also one of them. I had a TT done which did turn out to be cancer and on one of my visits for my checkup my endo noticed that my lymph nodes were slightly enlarged. To be on the safe side, he did a needle biopsy of my lymph nodes and sent it to the lab for evaluation. It turned out completely negative for anything. My endo told me that lymph nodes can become swollen for many reasons such as dental problems, an infection (even a cold).I also mentioned to him that years ago I did have mono to which he said that could be the reason for it too. Hope this helps.
