    Glad to hear about the good FNA results, and the fast response for a biopsy. It sounds like you have a good doctor and that you are doing everything you can to get this checked out.

    Never hurts to have a check with the doctor. How much weight have you lost?

    Prodding at them, apparently, will agitate them and cause them to swell up. From experience, I have convinced myself...
