I am 39. I was released from the hospital a few days ago. I am scheduled for a follow up Wednesday. I went into the hospital with ecoli poisoning and figured I might just die from that.

While I was there they found a 2x3 mass with an intestinal block (the intestines were swollen too). It was also discovered I had either one large or two swollen lymph nodes pressing against the aorta.

That is all I know to be fact. Friends started emailing me saying it is colon or stomach cancer. My father had pollips removed in stage 4 and is fine (colon). My grandmother died within six months of finding the cancer very young (50s I think.

I do not have a fever. I do not have a known infection. My blood work all came back in normal range. I am still waiting for the limes disease test results (I was only bit a week ago, so the research on that shows that wont be the cause). I can only find cancer and infection to cause the lymph nodes to swell.
