Hi guys, I have bad news, and I am honestly very frightened . I've had swollen lymph nodes under my neck for over a week and half, maybe even
little bit more. I thought that my body is fighting some kind of infection, and that I caught a flu or something. Additional symptoms appeared few
days later, my throat was scratching, I started coughing, then getting shivers, fevers at night, lots of sweating, there was no weight loss though. I
went to neck and head doctor, and she diagnosed me with sinus infection, and then sent me to ultrasound. The found out that my lymph nodes are very
swollen, more than they should be, and that my mucous membrane is bigger than 3 cm, which shouldnt be.
They said that there is either some kind of virus infection going on in my body, or that I have lymphoma. They sent me to histology, did some blood
tests, checked my lymph nodes, and started suspecting now both infectious mononucleosis and lymphoma, but more likely infection mononucleosis. I am
going to have liver tests done tommorow just to be sure what it is.
I am still young, 21 year old, we have absolutely no history of any cancer at all in family, so I wasnt suspecting anything like that at all. And now
this? Doctors think that I may have lymphoma?
Please, in case I will be diagnosed with it.. I dont want to be treated with radiation, I know what it does, I read a lot about it. I want something
effective, some kind of alternative therapy. What could work? Thank you.
