Trey, you are correct. It isn't just one lymph node that is swollen near or on the lungs. A biopsy was done and samples were taken from the swollen lymph nodes by a pulmonary doctor. So far sarcondoisis and lymphoma have been ruled out. It will take 6 weeks for the results which are grown in petri dishes to determine what the cause is and how to treat it. My daughter saw the oncologist yesterday, and he said that if it were up to him he would put her on steroids and call it a day, but he stated that he is not the pulmonary doctor. Trey, what are your thoughts on this? All I know is that the oncologist stated that my daughter is a big question mark. The other news is that the hospital changed labs.and her blood work was not 000 any longer. It is 001. The oncologist believes that it is due to the change in labs but will do a test on her on Weds.
