Hi I am a 27 year old female from England who was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma on the 27th November 2004. Apparently I have been living with cancer for approx one year without even knowing. I first found a lump about this long ago, did not think much about it as I have always suffered from swollen glands and the like. Bugged me for a couple of months and then went to doctors. Not to bore you with these details, I went had numerous tests, ct scan and then did not hear anything for 6 mths. Thinking all was fine went on with life as you do until one month ago when I phoned doctors out of the blue to find out why I had never had a follow up. Apparently I had been lost somehow and so you can imagine the devastation when 6 mths later they tell me they think I have cancer. The next minute I was signing papers for biopsy, Anyway I would very much appreciate response from anyone in the same situation as me or anyone who can give me an idea of what to expect. Has anyone else been having panic attack type things, need help. Thanks.
