Having swollen lymph node under armpit. Having unusual blood flow to the cortex of node. Should I be worried?

My daughter has swollen lymph node under left armpit. Test results came back and said the was unusual blood glow to the cortex of the node and now want her to see a surgeon for biopsy. But now the lump is still there but seems to be getting smaller. The drs suspect lymphoma but with it looking smaller should I be as worried?

Hi!
welcome to HCM!
No,you should not be worried.doctors may be suspecting lymphoma because it is essential to rule out lymphoma in such case,however till FNAC or biopsy shows some suspicious cells there is nothing which suggests lymphoma Especially when it is regressing in size,it could be just reactive lymph node or may be due to some local infective lesion.
Hope this will help you!
