Unhappy Please give me advice :(

first question is can lymphoma go undiagnosed for 8 years??

secondly, if it can be undiagnosed for that long, which type would it be?

ive been to numerous doctors and they all say im fine and my CBC is completly normal. Ive had 2 pregnancies with no complications. completely normal and my kids are healthy. can someone with lymphoma get pregnant and have a normal pregnancy?

im convinced i have either lymphoma or leukemia. i have joint pain, some englarged lymph nodes in my neck and groin. now my left side is sore. im always really tired especially in the morning i feel like i could just sleep all day but thats hard with 2 kids... I do not have any weight loss as ive always been skinny...no night sweats really ...

i have a doctors appt next week but im a nervous wreck....if i do have it can it even be treated after this long? im only 25

SOMEONE ANYONE PLEASE HELP WRITE BACK

Re: Please give me advice :(

Hey, the only way to find out if you have Lymphoma is to get you doc/specialist to do a Lymph Node biopsy, this will confirm what is going on regardless of Lymphoma or something else. Your symtoms could be from a range of other things other than Lymphoma, remember anxiety can cause all sorts of pains....

With regards what you ask - can someone with lymphoma get pregnant and have a normal pregnancy? Yes but dont let that worry you, speak with your GP, express your concerns and take it from there.

P.s. Im going through what you are with the Lymphoma fear, although Im under a good specialist who as done a Full CY scan and a Lymph node biopsy, both of which Im awaiting results.

Hello Mama-K,
If it turns out to be lymphoma it should be a slow growing one like follicular. You have plenty of time but get to a Dr. with your concerns and get checked out.

I had symptoms similar to yours and it turned out I had Follicular lymphoma stage 3 and had had it for a serious number of years (10-15). Don't self diagnose but follow up with your Dr's so you do not fall through the cracks.
