    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    My husband found a small lump one day while shavin 1 month later finally got in to see a doctor. They where under the impression it was just a blocked salivary gland by then it was almost the size of a large superball. sent for a CT scan size of a golf ball. Our ENT an awesome doc. Realized we had a problem and ordered FNA By then almost size of a base ball. One week later we got the call........lymphoma The wind was knocked out of me.....We wasted almost 3 months thinking it was a salivary gland. We had no idea.

    Surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    We went in for a biopsy. When the pathologists saw the size of my husbands lump he decided to take off the whole thing. It was a wonderful surprise. My husband was so miserable with it. It was a nice Christmas presant
