My name is Mandee and I am 25 years old. I am going to try and keep this short and sweet. Okay so I have been suffering from low grade fevers for about 9 months now. I have been on 9 rounds of antibotics in 4 months, HIV neg and Hep neg, blood test are high end of normal, and I have a high heart rate. I just had my axialary lymphnodes biopsied and results were neg for infection but did show reactive cells (whatever that means). I have 5 submandibluar nodes that are swollen but not painful all ranging from 2cm and up. I have had an abnormal CT showing submandibular glands and a subclavicular mass on my left side. I have been suffering headaches off and on and my face feels heavy. I am meeting with my ENT again this friday and he is biopsing my cervical nodes and I am having my throat scoped. If anyone can help with any tests that should be ran....maybe for a viral infection or someting else I would greatly appreciate it. I am a single mom and I am getting really worried. :confused:

  • The doctor is doing the best test he can and that is the biopsy. The subclavicular mass is the one I would be most worried about. I have read over and over that this is a dangerous place for enlarged lymph nodes. Please post to let me know what happens. Debbie
