I started out in January with a single swollen lymph node under my arm. As I had developed an irregular heart beat several month before and had bronchitis twice over the winter, I figured it was just a reaction to the viruses. When I saw my doctor in March, I mentioned it and she immediately reacted. I have had a mamogram, chest CT with contrast, blood tests for mono, EBV, Lupus, Lymes, and Vit B12 deficiency. All were negative. By May, there were two. They were both removed and came back as reactive lymph disease, but benign. Now there are seven more on both sides.....underarm area only. Now my doctor is sending me to an oncologist. What are the possibilities?
