Hi

I just wanted to know if you have an ultrasound done on enlarged lymph nodes can they tell if its Lymphoma? I have had these lumps in my neck for about 1 yr and the doc doesnt seen to care. I have noticed 3 more come up and the one under my clavicle is huge and rock solid. I had an ultrasound done a year ago and they were about 14.9mm. The report said if I had anymore test for dyscrasia (which he didnt) I have had antibiotics and been tested for mono which was negative. They thought I had Lupus as I had a high ESR and I got sent to a specialist and he told me I didnt. So I am really confused as to whats going on now. Any help would be great

Thanks

Jess
