I'm extremely worried about my possibility of lymphoma. I've had a swollen lymph node on the right side of my neck for about 6 months now, I'm a 24 year old female. I went to get an ultrasound on the right side of my neck to see what it may be and here are my results:
Technique: real time sonographic images of the posterior right neck for 6 months, chronic lymphadentis.
Findings: several (at least 4) scattered, fairly well circumscribed, ovoid masses of similar appearance but varying size in the relatively shallow subcutaneous soft tissues of the anterior superior to lower lateral right neck, the largest measuring 1.0 cm in greatest dimension, demonstrating heterogeneous low echogencity most consistent with borderline enlarged and small lymph nodes.
conclusion: several scattered borderline enlarged small lymph nodes in the subcutaneous soft tissues of the right neck, the largest measuring 1.0cm in greatest dimension. These may be reactive nodes due to inflammation or infection, although malignancy, such as lymphoma is also a remote possibility. If not already obtained, CT of the neck with contrast may provide additional information.
I know I don't have an infection, cat scratch disease, the flu, because I've taken multiple blood tests ruling those out. I was sick with a bacterial throat infection around 6-7 months ago but obviously got better.
What are your thoughts? Has anyone had similar ultrasound results prior to being diagnosed with lymphoma?
