My biopsy of nerve sheath tumor near coxxys (spine) says lymphoid aggregates are composed of a mixture of cd3 positive t cells and cd20 positive b cells. They want to do another biopsy combined with ancillary studies such as flow cytometry etc....
I live in Ohio. I'm totally confused. The doc has no diagnosis. I don't know where to read about this stuff as when I google it it displays technical material for scientists or doctors... No normal talk of it/what the cells are about. I don't want another biopsy. Surgery to remove it can cause chronic pain for life. No meds or other means can still the pain I've read and been told by doc. I'm scared. I'm wondering about matake mushrooms to make the tumor smaller. I know...not fda approved. I have an appt. for a second opinion. Yet I want to read about it myself. Does anyone know where I can get this information in a language I can understand? Thank you.
