You should see a physician for proper diagnosis and treatment recommendations. ...Read more

Does lymphoma present with symptoms? Swollen lymph node pea size x7 months. Normal labs, CT & chest X-ray. Somewhat tired, occasional itching.
Node biopsy possibly:

Sometimes infections and drainage to the affected lymph node is the underlying cause rather than malignancy. If the node needs to be biopsied then a surgical referral can be made. Small moveable nodes tend to be benign.
Tissue diagnosis is usually quite definitive. ...Read more
