Okay to start I will tell you what has been going on. In 06 I had a breast lump and had a biopsy it came back "inconclusive" so the Dr. decided to biopsy. It came back negative. Well in 1/2010 the lump returned I figured it was scar tissue. But then I started to get really tired and just ill feeling all the time. I decided to go to my Dr. She said I was just tired from just having a baby. I believed her and went on trying to work with no energy. i work 10hr days so thought I was overworking myself. My next symptom came about feb I noticed a lump directly under my chin, weird I didn't even know I had lymph nodes there. I showed my dr she said I should go see the dentist for infection in my mouth. Which I did and had my teeth cleaned and the dentist said there was no infection. I ignored it untill november I decided to see a new dr. I saw an internal dr. She wanted to test my breast lump. Had an Mammo, looked suspicious so had mri. Mri came back clean. She did not notice any swollen lymph nodes under my arm. I showed her my lump under my chin and she said we should "watch" it. Well I was back in jan with mild fevers that I had on and off since december between 99-101. did complete blood workup and the only thing really out of range was my lympho% which was 18 range started at 20. She said nothing to worry about. I feel like since then I have gotten more tired and now sweat at night. But not the soak your sheets sweat. Just clammy and uncomfortable. Went back and had check xray, normal and so I showed her my lump again since it had been a couple mos. She said it seem a lot biggeR. she also found another swollen node on my left side of my neck and one on each side of my groin/pelvis area. She told me she wanted biobsy of under my chin after us of throat. The apt isn't for another 2wks. I'm kinda worried. My aunt has had numerous cancers and my mom had colon and my gma stomach. Has anyone had normal blood work and then a biobsy and it came back lymphoma? I've heard it would show up in bloodwork and also heard it may not. ANY EXPERIENCES? 2 weeks is a long time to wait and i'm really curious! Thank you in advance for any help or comfort. :confused:
