In March, '08 CT found large mass on thymus. Was sent to thoracic surgeon who opted to see if lymph node involvement occurred. Seven weeks ago started to get painful pimple-sized to nickle-sized nodules on right foot, which now wrap around entire ankle/heel area. (Infection, rheumatoid arthritis, uric acid elevation and shingles virus eliminated as causes) Lymph node in neck under chin enlarged and painless. Have chest pain intermittently. Am tired most of the time. Have slight cough--non productive and sporadic with no rhyme or reason. Itching on right-side of face on occasion. Hodgekins does run in family (dad had it). I also had ovarian cancer two years ago and had major complications including DVT/pulmonary emboli, severe internal bleed requiring epogen to build red blood cell count, pleural effusion and enlarged spleen. Wonder if this might have contributed to further immune deficiency problems. CT done again couple of days ago and I see doc for report in couple of days. Problem is I believe too many specialists and specialties and connections between symptomologies not being made.
