I would like to get feedback from you all. I have had an enlarged lymph node that is very hard (doesn't hurt) and other "symptoms". The ENT sent me last May for a CT scan and found that I had a 1.2cm enlarged jugulodigastric node. My symptoms gradually increased and in October I went back to my GP and he said that he didn't get test results from the ENT but felt that since 5 months had passed, he would have a follow up scan done. They called me and said that the scan results said there had been no change in the size since the May scan. I have copies of the reports and now the muscles around the node are strained when I move it in certain directions, I can't eat, have headaches, etc. I took the copies of the reports with me last week when I went back to my GP because I am so tired my husband is extremely worried. I questioned to my GP why the test results said there was no change in size but the measurement was 1.2 in May and 2.2 in October. He called to verify that it had grown 1cm from May to October. Now he is sending me for another CT tomorrow and said that if it has grown more than 3mm, he wants to send me to a different ENT to have either a FNA biopsy or have it removed. My uncle did have NHL and it wasn't until this last appointment that lymphoma became real because my GP said that there were too many "signs possibly pointing to lymphoma". I'm tired of paying Dr.'s bills and getting no where. Should I just go ahead and say I want the node removed? I have a step-cousin who had NHL in his mid-twenties and he said his was in the same area and his FNA came back inconclusive and his NHL wasn't found until they removed it. I'm just not sure what step to take next seeing as how I'm having to double check the results every time they send me. Any advice is greatly appreciated!!!
