Numerous months ago I had slight swelling in the chest area. I went out of town on vacation and ended up getting shortness of breath when I would get upset. I came home and went to the doctor, they said I had bronchidis and pluresy. A month later I went back and the doctor said I must have strained my chest muscle due to tightening of the chest. It has been almost 1 year. I have been doing alot of reading. I have alot of swelling on the left side of my chest area, I even believe my breasts are a little bigger and have alot of pain in my left shoulder and hand. I went to another doctor my cbc shows ok, my ultra sound and chest xray shows swollen lymph nodes. My only symptons are fatigue & hot flashes-night sweats (but I cant tell about the hot flashes or night sweats due to a hysterectomy 2 years ago, and i take no hrts). Could this be lymphoma or something else.
