Hi everyone, I found a lump in my upper thigh/groin area and waited a few weeks to check it out. Never thought it would be cancer, but I had been losing some weight so checked it out. First I had an MRI of the pelvis and groin and it just showed an enlarged lymph node. So the whole lymph node was removed. Next day was told it was follicular B cell lymphoma grade 1-2. Went to oncologist and had a bone marrow (is it always done without sedation? ouch)and sent for a PET scan. She ordered it without contrast, is that normal also? Anyway, I guess I am a lucky one compared to a lot of you, the bone marrow and PET were normal. I am also experiencing some night sweats. So I do have 'B' symptoms. I am very new to this and it is scary. The dr. said she would recommend that I have radiation at the site of the removed lymph node. I am going for a second opinion. Well that is my story. Does anyone else have a similar story? If so, what were your recommedations. And is there anything I should ask the second opinion Dr.? I have my appointment this Wed.I am 58 years young and has always been the caretaker for everyone. It is so hard for me to be the one with an issue. I guess that is how anyone feels when they hear the word cancer. Is this a common age? Thanks in advance.
