I am W & W CLL of 5 years. About 5 months ago, swollen lymph node on neck appeared about size of golf ball. This was after having bronchitis returning from trip in Asia. Afterwards, allergy season kicked in high gear for several months and just finished up a cold. A little too much for my immune system. Doctor is recommending radiation treatment to shrink it. I feel no pain from lymph node, no other CLL symptoms except people asking what's wrong with my neck. Wondering whether anyone out there have had radiation treatment for this issue. This wouldn't help me with CLL but just this one local lymph node. Getting a second opinion.
