    Oh No

    I had been seeing an ear/nose/throat specialist for almost 2 years for enlarged lymph nodes in my neck. After having different scans done, he decided to do a lymph node biopsy because I had increased lymphadenopathy. I couldn't believe it after surgery when he told me the cells looked abnormal, and then received the diagnosis about a week later. My diagnosis is small lymphocytic lymphoma. (I think I picked the right category for diagnosis).
