help

Hi this is my first time to the site. I would like some advice as my doctors are not very helpful . About 3 months ago I found a lump on the side of the now iv found two more one at the back of neck and one above it in my hair line I am also having night sweats and I'm constantly drained could this be a sign of lymphoma? When I asked my doctor he just laughed I had blood test done they came back fine a had a camera put down my throught that came back clear I am awaiting a scan and other blood results .

Re: help

I'm dealing with the same thing right now, the best thing to do is insist on a biopsy of one of the lymph nodes as that is the only sure way they can tell if it's lymphoma or not. You can't tell from blood work. Night sweats, swollen lymph nodes and fatigue are symptoms of lymphoma but it could also be something else like glandular fever or another infection. How long have you had them for?

Good luck!
