      I have now been diagnosed with lymphoma with sub type being either mantle or large cell b. It is still unclear what the subtype is. A fish test is being done to determine. I reached out and shared my diagnosis with 2 of my closest freinds who basically reacted very nonchalently, one laughed then turned the conversation to be about them, and the other listened for all of a minute before letting me know they were on t...

          Folks im giong f-ing crazy waiting for the results. I know many of you have been through treatment and and are on the other side....but im the guy who just found out he has cancer less than 24 hours ago and is now about to see the ENT to get the results of "what" type of Lymphoma it is. Anyone at all ? Did I say something to turn off potential responders?

            As im waiting im, and (i suppose) holding onto hope this is a mis-diagnosis, im just wondering if anyone has had any experience on being told they have lymphoma b, but later found it was a mis-diagnosed and was actually only EBV, mono or some other auto immune issue. Im problably in denial and gasping at straws, but it would be helpful to know.

              Went to ent for tonsillitis. Tonsil seemed to swell after I quit smoking. Antibiotics helped but ent pushed for more tests. Did a punch tonsil biopsy last week and today he called to tell me the pathologist thinks I have Type B Lymphoma. Pathologist hasn’t determined the actual type of Type B Lymphoma, but I should have those results tomorrow8/17/2017.  I have one swollen left neck node and one right armp...

                Had anyone heard of or know of anyone being mis-diagnosed for lymphoma? Here is the piece I found on it http://theoncologist.alphamedpress.org/content/9/4/406.full

                  Well I got a call from my ENT today 8/16/2017 regarding the punch biopsy (not fine needle) taken last thur and it isnt good. The pathologist thinks I have Type B Lymphoma. Pathologist hasn’t determined the actual type of Type B Lymphoma, but I should have those results tomorrow8/17/2017.  From what I understand this is more of a blood cancer that can affect lymph nodes because they filter the blood. &nb...

                    Update. Yesterday I go the informal readings of the CT scan.Readingbasically said I have a tonsil stone but other than that finding were unremarkable.  Also I have been on very heavy dose of antibiotics. The pain and some swelling has subsided as well as some shrinking of the affected lymph node.  Today I have a fine needle aspiration biopsy.  Considering my history im not messing around here. ...

                      Thanks for everyone's response. Also sorry for being impatient :/  It didn’t occur to be that antibiotics healing the tonsil was actually a good sign. I am currently taking another round of dual stronger antibiotics and started to feel the tonsil pain subside slightly yesterday and I suspect they will continue to feel better.  Also I didn’t realize that a swollen node located on the other side...
