In February I was diagnosed with pleurisy. The doctor tried antibiotics but it didn't work. He finally tried prednisone and that stopped the pain. After a few weeks I stopped taking one day and the pain came back. I had my normal check-up ct-scan on Febuary 6th that said I was stable. Then another ct-scan on February 23 to check for pleurisy. My internist talked to my onc last week and they sent me for a pet-scan on April 27. The scan showed two hot spots in my chest cavity that the onc wants to biopsy. I'm waiting to get the date for the biopsies now.
I was wondering if anyone has gotten pleurisy from lymphoma.
