Possible lymphoma--freaking out

I have swollen inguinal nodes diagnosed on ct. One is 2.5 cm the other is over 1 cm. I have been on 1 antibiotic for 10 days with no change. I am now on cipro. Just one day in. No change. No other symptoms except some lower back and right hip pain. Urologist doesn't think it is prostatitis that I had for most of the summer. Treated with cipro and ultimately resolved. Seeing surgeon on Monday to talk about biopsy. Should I have excision? What is the likelihood this is lymphoma and is it good or bad that I have no other real symptoms except some pain.

Have it excised. The same thing kinda happened with me. Right inguinal lymph node enlargement. By the time they got around to excising it it was 2.5 cms. (the largest) with several more smaller ones. The largest one they excised. It was follicular lymphoma in stage II. Please have it removed for biopsy - I was told by medical personnel that a needle biopsy could actually miss it.
