Well, this can't be good. UPDATE- Lab Results

  1. So about 3 weeks ago I noticed a small, or what felt like a small.. bump in my neck. I went to my doc who sent me to an internist who decided to stick a needle in the offending bump and grab some cells and send them to the lab. Well, we all know pathologists are a squirrly bunch, they will cut and slice a sample for weeks before they will make a decision. Today my doctor called me. The cells were lymph cells, now mind you, this bump was not in the area where lymph nodes reside, so for some reason this chunk of lymph has migrated..? And, to make matters even more fun, the cells were "abnormal" but non "conclusive". So this Friday I am going to have the entire thing removed so they can lab it and find out what the heck is going on. So, long story short, send me some good thoughts that this is not Hodgkins or some lymphoma or something...
    Thanks:s

  6. I know I have never spoken with you before but I feel I can comment. Okay think of it this way - when doctors think there is even a chance of cancer or anything else "scary" they will very often warn you and will most certainly fast track you through pathology etc to be certain. This has been my personal experience. I really hope you are okay - this is really scary stuff. Especially on your neck!! (esshhhkkk). PLEASE keep us posted won't you.... when is your opointment?
