Well, it seems there are more lymph nodes than normal and a few of them are larger than expected, so it's time for a biopsy. It depends on how fast they can get me into surgery to have the biggest node removed and checked. If not ASAP, then she'll settle for a needle biopsy, just to get things going. I also have nodules on my thyroid, so need to get an ultrasound of that, tomorrow. At least they're not wasting any time. She mentioned either a thyroid problem or lymphoma. I'm hoping, since thyroid problems run in my family, that it's that.

Crap, crap, crap!!!!!!
