Suggest Treatment For Tonsilitis
Lymphoma usually has clinical manifestations and symptoms
Thanks for in to us.
If the lymph nodes first appeared following a tonsillitis then it is due to infection.
The lymph nodes mentioned are of small size and relatively constant over a year.
Lymphoma is suspected in cases where there is sudden significantly enlarged lymph nodes with generalised weakness and occasional and loss of weight.
I do not find that you have any symptoms of lymphoma.
I guess you got FNAC test done and it shows benign reactive inflammatory. Please correct me if I am wrong.
If FNAC test is not done then you can get it done for peace of mind.
Also you can get a follow up ultrasound scan done in 3 to 6 months.
Cancer lymph nodes usually become double the size in 3 months
Thanks for writing back with an update.
The radiologist is right because the lymph nodes are too small to be considered as a sign of lymphoma and besides you first had it right after the tonsillitis.
Observing the nodes every 3 to 6 months will help. This is because the cancer lymph nodes usually double in size within 3 months.
You can get a complete blood count done for peace of mind.
