Ok- so I am 24 and was having some abdominal pain and constipation that I thought may be related to my anxiety/panic disorder. I went to a gastro and had a CT of the abdomen and a colonoscopy and endo...(where they put a camera down your throat).
Everything was normal except for some lymph nodes that were enlarged that showed up on a ct. The lymphs that were enlarged were 1cm or less in the abdomen.
I have no symptoms of lymphoma but I did have a fever for about 24 hours a month ago (on Easter!!) and sometimes I get a little hot at night and sweat but it does not last the entire night and does not dampen my sheets. I don't know if that is just me being hot (which I normally always am or a "night sweat")
I just don't know what to think- I've had all of these tests and no one has told me anything. The doctor said he doesn't think it is lymphoma but can not tell for sure. The lymphs are too small to biopsy. I also just had a chest ct but havn't heard back yet from the hematologist. I am so scared it is cancer. I just feel all alone in this- no one seems to be willing to give me any hope or information...
