Lymphoma fears are out of control!
« on: January 28, 2014, 06:30:04 PM »
I feel a lot of lumpy structures in my groin and it's freaking me out. I have been rubbing the area a lot lately so I'm not sure If I have made them larger or not. I swear some of what I'm feeling has to be lymph nodes! I'm also about 28 weeks pregnant with twins so could these be something else like fatty deposits? I just had a CBC done a couple days ago at my OB appointment and everything came back normal. Should that be a good sign that I don't have lymphoma? I've heard conflicting things about blood work and lymphoma. Something surely would have been off if it were lymphoma, right?  :(

Hey there :) Lymph nodes in the inguinal a.k.a. the groin can be palpated in healthy individuals, anything not exceeding 2cm is not particularly worrisome. I myself could palpate a lymph node in my groin a few years ago and to make things worse backthen i had a few drenching night sweats, needless to say i was worried sick and my doctor wasn't concerned at all. And i'm still alive so i guess it wasn't malignant. Try to relax :)

So i felt my groin area and i can feel some lumpy structures :) if your ob said everything is normal, i wouldn't worry. Especially since you are pregnant; if she was a little bit worried, she would tell you so! So relax and enjoy your pregnancy!! though i understand it can be hard to do.. i have a four months old girl and i couldn't stop being anxious when i was pregnant.. and now!!

Do you think if I had lymphoma that something would be off in my blood work? My doctor ordered the CBC, liver and kidney function, etc. because he was checking for preeclampsia. He even had it sent to the hospital and not just the OB office lab for extensive testing. All came back normal but I'm still worried!

probably.. but i am not sure since i saw in other posts that lymphoma does not show up in blood test. But let's be rational.. why are you so afraid of lymphoma? because of the lumps you feel in the groins? A week ago, i went to the doctor for a lump in the neck and i told him about my lymphoma fears. He told me that usually lymphoma comes with the B-symptoms (fever, night sweats, losing weight). You don't have lymphoma just because you can feel some lumps in the groins. Stop touching them :)

I think you should read the previous answers to your other posts about this. This is very unhealthy for your prgnancy as I mentioned before. If you are this worried you need to speak to your doctor. Get an ultrasound of your lymphnodes or something.  Not because of the lyphoma but because you WILL cause early labor. You think you are worried now, imagine how worried you will be if your babies are born next week.

My daughters friend had Hodgkins Lymphoma around 5 years ago and is fine now. His two
main symptoms were severe weight loss and severe joint pain.
