I had an auto stem cell transplant about a year

I had an auto stem cell transplant about a year ago. I just had a pet scan and the only lymph nodes that had no cancer to begin with now show activity. They are behind my lungs. To hard to biopsy. Is it possible that the pet scan can be wrong. My bone marrow and blood
tests were negative.

Hello I have burkitt s lymphoma/nhl and have been hiv positive for 3 years. I was undetectable and 450 range cd4 before I was first diagnosed with nhl last year, but now virus load s 100,000 and going lower (I just started back my meds) and cd4 is maybe 150 (again just started back meds) . I went through chop last year but now have nonoccurrence on my pet/ct scan. I must now go through valcad ice treatment. Is a auto or donor stem cell transplant a good idea as well or is this too risky for hiv patients?

my father has multiple myeloma cancer and is on his 2nd chemo cycle before a donor transplant and has decided to quit cold turkey, the transplant is a haploid and he has already had this for now 3 years, undergoing 2 previous auto stem cell transplants, will discontinuing chemo make him ineligible to do the haploid transplant? His cancer has been extremly aggressive on his back bones and hips. Any advise about his current decision?
