in trying to decide whether to start treatment (rituxin) after being diagnosed with follicular lymphoma Stage IV...how do you know how large enlarged means? several nodes, mainly in abdomen are 2.4cm or 2.9 cm... when the growth is measured it is shown in mm as nodes
I've read on net nodes are between 1-2 cm depending our your size. Being female and only 5'2 I would think the nodes would be smaller in women than in men.
also read from one lady in a trial treatment that her node shrank to 1.4 which was still considered too large to be considered in remission.
any ideas? thanks
