Hi and thanks for the query,

I think other conditions, which of course are common and do present themselves as such. Generalized lymph node swelling in a febrile context deserves the formal exclusion of lymph node TB. A Chest X ray and a lymph node biopsy could be very useful.

A lymphoma, a kind of a tumor do presents itself as such too. Blood tests like complete blood counts, Erythrocyte sedimentation rates and C reactive proteins are useful to measured. Serum uric acid levels do help in considering some tumors. Complete electrolyte panel is of utmost use.

Systemic diseases like Systemic lupus erythematosus and other autoimmune disease should be considered. Screening for viral infections like HIV and EBV is important.

I suggest you consult an internist for a second opinion. Kind regards.
