    Sorry to hear this Sam. The thought of a relapse may never go away, as the memory of traumatic incidents tends to remain with us. Lymphoma is unique among cancers for several reasons, one of which is...

    ^ This.

    Anxiety! 64 million in the US suffer from some form of it. All of your symptoms and about 100 more can be produced solely by anxiety. You do not need to post on a cancer forum.

    Your initial symptoms having subsided are consistent with one of the many viruses circulating, as is the enlarged node. 2019 has been one heck of a year for odd viruses. I am fighting #6 or 7 right...

    It may very well be a node which expended and formed scar tissue, thus never returned to normal size. IMO, there is never any need to worry. Prudence is called for and if it grows substantially, or...

    Sorry to hear this. First, do you have control of your anxiety? That cannot help you, either ill or well. And no doctor can tell cancer from an MRI, an ultrasound, even a CT or PET scan. I'm sorry,...

    Yes. Steroids think the skin, among deleterious actions, thus making it all the more susceptible to solar-based cancers. I have pre-cancerous lesions frozen on my scalp regularly.
