Re: Questions about swollen lymph nodes
Good Evening. I am a lay person. I am not doctor, but I can tell you... Only an excisional biopsy can definitively rule out lymphoma. CBCs in lymphoma patients are often normal so they are not really a lymphoma tool. I have been doing alot of reading on lymphoma and have not come across gag reflex as a symptom. I too am dealing with the needle biopsy option because of the location of my nodes. Go with the needle without hesitation. If it finds nothong and you are still concerned, you can always have the surgery. I hope others will post for you. In situations like yours, I know someone can relate and I hope they share. HUGS!
