I have had two CT's, two bronchosopies, and needle biopsies for 2cm lymph nodes and granulomas on the lungs. I am 36, right weight, and healthy (I thought). Now going to get open biopsy on lung. Negative for sarcoid so far, TB test negative, evertthing negative - but lymphs reamin swollen. They are thinking possible latent form of TB...any ideas? Seems like a ton of tests but I really don't have any symptoms. Amazed going to have surgery....
