Brief Answer:
Unlikely to be lymphoma

Detailed Answer:
Hi Sir.

I understand your concern.

You seem to have very long standing swellings which are unlikely to be lymphomas in the absence of any symptoms.

For accurate diagnosis,I advise you to have a FNAC-fine needle aspiration and cytology test .

This test can make your diagnosis.

Post your further queries if any.
Thank you.

Hi I also wanted to know if it is Lipoma because I can keep moving it back and forth very easily .And the size of it is less then 2cm. Is it compulsory I get the biopsy ,since I have had it for many years ,I was thinking it is nothing serious.

Brief Answer:
Could be lipoma?But need biopsy

Detailed Answer:
Hi .

Yes it could be lipoma.

But you need to get biopsy for sure even though its been for many years to avoid any future complications and to rule out cancers to be on a safer zone.

Thank you.
