Customer Question

I've been having progressing symptoms- exhaustion, weakness, night sweats, lump above my left supraclavicular, abdominal pains, constipation, urinary frequency, hesitation, shortness of breath, chest pains (sharp, stabbing through my shoulders), nausea and loss of appetite, to name a few. Had a FNA of a swollen cervical left node on Wed- waiting for results. What does this sound like to you?
Thanks in advance.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
At least your CT scans were clear.
That speaks against any cancer including lymphoma.
Most of your symptoms likely anxiety related.
Waiting for the result can be a terrible time for you.
But do not give up.
Your chances of malignancy is very low.
Hormonal symptoms are more likely which often can be addressed with combined estrogen progestin pills.
Please also get your thyroid function checked.
Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****
