Re: Lumps in Neck and in Groin for Several Months Thoughts/Opinions/Similar Experien
I am only recently learning about swollen lymph nodes, causes, biopsy, etc. I am not a doctor. My suggestion would be: Make sure you keep that appointment. Push for answers. Don't let them shuffle you out the door. Tell him/her everything that you want him/her to hear, especially everything you have typed in this post. Have your doctor physically examine you and if your nodes are truly the size that you think they are (confirmed clinically by a professional), then I think you should have them biopsied (not a needle biopsy, have one excised). That is the only true way to rule out Lymphoma and then you can move on to getting you feeling better. Good luck and keep that strong positive attitude you have. Remember, you are the consumer, you are the boss, it's your body. Stand your ground. Be polite, kind, and genuine. If the doctor starts to leave the room and you are not done, simply tell him/her that you need to share a few more things or have a few more questions. And we're all out here because we care about you. Good luck! Post after your appointment please.
