Went to have a swollen lymph node In my neck checked on Thursday at ent. Have had it at least a year but another doc dismissed it without really checking so assumed it was down to the lupus. My new rheumy doc decided to send me to ent to have it checked. Anyway 1st doc looked and said didn't look to bad but he'd send me for ultrasound. Another doc carried that out and the next minute he's telling me he needs to take a biopsy as lymph nodes further down neck are swollen on left side only. Was quite uncomfortable but I knew it had to be done. Docs didn't really explain why they were doing it when I asked and my mind went blank cause everything happened so fast. Have to go back in 2 weeks for results but I'm getting worried it could be serious. Has anyone had this done for lupus? Has anyone had biopsy done for other reasons? He did ask if I had dry mouth and I said that I had been told I had sjogrens. Not having a flare at moment.
