Mammogram said predominately enlarged lymph nodes bilateral axilla, rapidly growing fibroid. Next?

Thank you for time. Annual mammogram showed predominately enlarged lymph nodes bilateral axilla . No other abnormality detected. CBC and cmp witin normal limits. Excisional biopsy completed and came back as atypical lymphoid proliferation so sent off to Iowa university for additional testing and came back benign. I was told by the dr to return if I had any more problems and be sure to have a mammogram next year. Is this typical? I also had a uterine biopsy last year due to abnormal thickening of uterine lining. That biopsy was benign. Ultrasound was done initially due to large rather rapidly growing fibroid . since I have few symptoms besides abdominal pressure and mild urinary frequency I was hoping this fibroid will shrink after menopause. Dr informed me the only way to be sure fibroid is not a leiomyosarcoma is to have it removed. Now I m worried I ve chosen to wait it out. Could this be a cause of the unexplained lymph node enlargement

Hi, welcome to HCM I am Dr Das
First of all,leimyosarcoma or leiomyoma can't cause any type of lymph node enlargement .
There are many benign proliferation of lymphoid cells . So these are not the problem .
Only treatment for such a rapidly enlarging tumor of uterus is removal of it as early as possible . Because it may be a malignant one.
So, dont wait, just go for operation.
