2 yr old has swollen lymph nodes in groin, one of which is growing rapidly, no fever or infections. Any ideas ?

My two year old daughter had swollen lymph nodes in her groin that swelled up three months ago. A ct-scan was done and a few other swollen lymph nodes were found on both sides of her groin. The largest one was 2.2cm. Alot of blood work was done to role out infection. We started seeing an oncologist who initially thought it was lymphoma until they got slightly smaller. In the past month and a half they seemed to go down alot in size. Then throughout this week the large one grew rapidly to 3cm by 2cm. We went to the doctor today and the only other test she could do to role out a disease process was a TB test. She is getting a biopsy scheduled for us for next week. Any thoughts? No fevers or any signs of infection.

Provisional diagnosis of these enlarged lymph nodes could be ;
