I have had 3 biopsies all of which have shown inflammation and some abnormal cell formations. I have seen an ENT, rheumatologist and an immunologist. My docs now want to refer me to a derm-pathologist. The lumps wax and wane on about a 3-4 day cycle and seem to respond to anti-inflammatories but never go away completely. my doctors are perplexed and at a loss as to what is causing the lumps or as to how to treat it. The condition is very painful and I am looking for anyone who has had this same problem or a doctor who maybe has come across this condition. I need to find a diagnosis and figure out how to treat this so i can get my life back. thanks for any help anyone can give me.
