      Half way through my treatment for non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, it was discovered that some of the nodes they thought were Lymphoma were actually Sarcoids, so I had both Lymphoma and an auto immune disease which some doctors told me is very rare and others told me not so much.
      We had much difficulty discerning the two nodes as they show up the same in the PET scans. Not sure if that answers your question.
