Brief Answer: Non hodgkins lymphoma Detailed Answer: Dear XXXX As you have history of non hodgkins lymphoma there is a chance of recurrence. if this is the only lymph node the size does not seem alarming and may be a reactive lymphadenitis. at this moment only observation as regards its size and appearance of new nodes is needed. A periodical check up and blood counts with peripheral smear examination should be done. Any abnormality if detected should be reported to hemato oncologist for further advice and management. Truly, Dr. J. Ticku

Brief Answer: NHL Detailed Answer: Dear XXXX Thanks for reverting. Non Hodgkins lymphoma is notorious for recurrence. The size of the nodes as stated is not alarming and could be reactive. But as advised if any change in size or appearance of new nodes is noted, they should be looked with suspicion. Truly, Dr. J. Ticku
