No need for biopsy: Good morning, small palpable lymph glands in the neck area are very common and biopsy is not needed unless they are abnormal in size and show different feel to touch. Keep the follow up with your doctor for additional as seen indicated.

Measure nodes, follo: Measure nodes and follow in two weeks to see if they change size or other places. How hi is the sed rate--crp. How are the rashes related--any joint symptoms. Good that chest ct normal, are liver or spleen enlarged?
