has anyone here ever been diagnosed with this on a lymph node biopsy?
I've never met anyone else with an "atypical" yet still be benign.

I never knew that once excised that another one can grow back in it's place.
does atypical mean the potential to turn to malignancy?
I never asked these questions back in 1998 when I was finished with my biopsy and referred to a disease specialtist.

it is now 2007 and I have another one in exact spot.

do I look like I"m being overly concerned and a hypochondriac if I persist to get it biopsied?

it's about the size of a quarter but is grows inwards too so I don't really know how large it really is.
the last one measured 4 x 6 centimeters.

this one feels about the same.

what would you do?
