my 15 yr old had a bump on his groin, no pain, thought to be a hernia, took to surgen, said infection. gave antibiotics, only got bigger. sent to oncologist, took all kinds of test including pet scan, said it lit up everywhere. said he had lymphoma. did a biopsy and was to insert a mediport, surgeon said freeze only showed infection. took two spots out said were so full of puss. waited 2 wks for biopsy report and said it is a granuloma. sarcoidosis. my son has no symptoms of this. will see infectious disease dr next week, could it be possible he had no cancer in the lymph they took out? why did the pet scan light up everywhere, neck, tonsils, chest. groin and pelvic. anyhelp? feel like i am getting the run around.
