Hi everyone. I'm starting to get nervous. It's that time of year again and I'm bracing myself. If you look at my signature line, has anyone had this many nodes and nodules and had everything be ok? Doc says, "They have been there since the beginning, don't worry. They would have doubled, etc.etc." The radiologist last year said to follow them more closely. The largest left-sided central mesenteric lymph node was 13 mm last November. At the time of diagnosis it was 10 mm (1 cm) from what I read. Doc says no big deal. DH doesn't want to go to another doctor.
I guess my real question is whether or not all of these nodes and nodules would really be nothing in your experience?
