hello do you see my question?
Tested for lung cancer (benign) On imigaginging they found Hotspots in lymph nodes and lesion on spleen. Is it possible that this couple be wrong.
certainly this could be wrong
CT or PET is not the final diagnosis
many things like infection can also produce such hot spots
the final diagnosis will be by biopsy
biopsy only will give you the exact diagnosis
you now needto discuss with your doctor about doing a biopsy of the glands
usually an Ultrasound guided fine needle biopsy of the nodes will be considered
discuss about this
wait for the biopsy report only that is confirmatory
for now, do not get worried by this report
it is yet to be confirmed

do you have any questions?
So what could it be if not lymphoma.as this is the basis of one failed biopsy
it could be a large number of conditions
like TB, immune diseases like sarcoidosis
all these could produce enlarged lymph nodes and in some cases hot spots also
any infection or inflammation can produce such hot spots and enlarged nodes
hello i noticed you just rated me poor service
this is even as we were still chatting
may i know why you did that?
a poor rating not only means that I am not credited for the time and effort I have given for you but it also affects my standing in JA
what exactly was it that you found deficient in my service?
I am in denial to this and to be honest this did not give me any more info, to lay these fears. I need facts that I can research and understand. It harbouring to do with you but the answer given. So I gave that tick box.
