May i know the simple explanation for this diagnosis: (post auricular area), excision biopsy: cellular spindle cell lesion favor nodular fascitis?

May i know the simple explanation for this diagnosis: (post auricular area), excision biopsy: cellular spindle cell lesion favor nodular fascitis?

Get 2nd opinion: A pathologist who trained at one of my institutions self-diagnosed a sarcoma and had his arm amputated, only to discover later it was nodular fasciitis, which is very benign. I was trained by some of the great pathologists and even they said they'd never call nodular fasciitis without a second pathologist agreeing. I'd suggest showing 3-4 of us pathologists. Good luck. ...Read more

1.5 cm (minimum) enlarged painless post cervical node. Now new post auricular node, also painless (<1cm). Both growing in the last 2 months. Lymphoma?

Enlarged lymph node: Lymph nodes can enlarge for many reasons, most commonly related to infectious or inflammatory reasons. Usually these are not fixed, and will wane over time.

FNAC right infra auricular swelling from many years and shows features of sialadenitis..plus chronic tonsilitis what precautions should i take?

FNAC right infra auricular swelling from many years and shows features of sialadenitis..plus chronic tonsilitis what precautions should i take?

Unsure. Hydration?: The cytology report did not specify if the FNA of the swelling was taken in the tonsil or salivary gland. (Or both? I'm confused) I wonder if something was left unexamined or if the main "mass" or problem was missed. A sialogram could show a stone (goes with sialadenitis), in which case drinking lots of fluid is preventative. (Dry mouth can be caused by fluoxetine). See ENT or use HT Prime for ans ...Read more
