My grandpa has golf ball size lumps in his lower jaw and throat. 3 years ago they told him liver cancer, then it was lung cancer...with further testing both were a negative. Then he developed these swollen jaws. Since he was in the Korean war they tested him for TB. His results were not negative, but they were not positive. BUT since they were unsure they decided to give him some super strong drugs- a nurse from the health department came out to the house to give him... That caused weight loss, fatique...etc... After taking these strong drugs for months, he completed the full prescription.
After stopping them, within a couple of weeks the "golf balls" are back. They went to the Dr. today and he said he doesn't know what it is and decided to put him on ANOTHER round of antibiotics. PLEASE help. Anitibiotics are not the solution....but what is the diagnosis? He is a thin man and a hard worker, even does major outdoor work. He has fatique and his mind is not as clear as it was? besides that......HUGE golf balls in his throat???? any ideas would be great. Biopsy showed negative too:-) Thanks, his 32 year old concerned granddaughter
