Re: UpdateRe: Just had core biopsy of supraclavicular node

I would think that with a new node popping up, they would want to do an excisional biopsy. There is so much more tissue to work with than the needle biopsies. Since this has been persisting, I would feel better doing that. The itching and hot flashes could actually be related, especially if they are night sweats. Have you had a chest xray or CT scan of chest or abdomen to look at other node sites? I think a PET scan would be helpful too as that would show increased activity in any abnormal nodes. I hope you get a good workup to allay your concerns and get to the bottom of it. Keep us posted.
