Going for CT guided biopsy Lymphadenopathy iliac inguinal and Retroperitoneal.
I am 1 54 YO male in BC Canada. I have been healthy most of my life but in the last 10 years problems have been accumulating. High blood pressure, Hiatal hernia, Sleep apnea, Chronic Bronchitis and I was recently diagnosed with coronary artery spasms.
I went for a CT scan for unrelated LUQ pain in December, the cause was not apparent but they did find lymphadenopathy in the Retroperitaneal, Periaortic, Iliac (4.1 CM), inguinal right-2.5CM, Inguinal left-2.8CM. The report suggests possible lymphoma or Leukemia. I am now waiting to be booked for a CT guided Biopsy to determine the malignancy or not of my lymph nodes.
It is frustrating as you have to wait and patience is not my strong suit.
I have had a myriad of other issues which I have mentioned to my Dr. over time which were not significant to him at the time, that I feel will turn out to be related. ie; Pain behind Left shoulder blade, Legs going numb from the top down, Serious pain in the left upper quadrant which increases rapidly when I try to be active and ongoing lower back pain.
Have a Great Day!
