Ok here is my question...
Ok here is my question. My stepmom found out she may have lymphoma and we were googling about it and it said a symptom is your lymphocytes being low. Back in Nov 2016 my son who had his tonsils removed had low absolute lymphocytes. He has been a healthy 9 yr old since. But he does still have a little swollen gland on one side of his neck. Is this a sign that he could have lymphoma. Here is his blood work from then

Just a low absolute lymphocyte count like that with a normal WBC and a normal rest of the differential would not carry a diagnosis of lymphoma

And you and I have talked extensively in the past about his throat

We’ll lymphoma thing with my stepmom unfolded yesterday and that made me think of his blood work. I hang thought about that in awhile

Can I ask how bad lymphoma is? My stepmom had a 4 in Timor grow in a year. That’s sounds awful and scary

That's really a very broad question

Hodgkins lymphoma is totally curable

Non Hodkins lymphoma has about a 70% five year survival rate

Oh I don’t know yet what type she has

We can talk about that on a new page once you find out

But for now can you please give me a rating?

Yes it is

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
